4 Tips For Preventing Burst & Frozen Pipes—From Kentucky's Emergency Plumbing Experts, Walton, Kentucky

It’s looking to be another very cold winter, which means that you have to contend with the risk of your pipes freezing. Inconvenient in its own right, frozen pipes can lead to bursting, the repairs of which are often costly and very troublesome. Having provided residents of Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties with boiler repair, bathroom renovation, toilet repair and related plumbing services since 1975, the contractors of Phillips Repair Services have truly seen it all, and they offer some tips on how to prevent this unfortunate situation from arising.

So what can you do—or have done—to prevent the worst from happening to your pipes? The folks at Phillips break down some of the best tips:

  • Insulation: Exposed pipes, such as those found in attics or crawl spaces, are particularly susceptible to freezing, so you should have them properly insulated, or insulate them yourself.
  • Seal it up: Make sure that any leaks in the walls or windows near the pipes are properly sealed off from the cold. These may also be found around electrical wiring and dryer vents.
  • Disconnect hoses: Water that remains in garden hoses will freeze more easily, and this can then spread to indoor pipes. If possible, you should drain and shut off pipes leading to outdoor faucets.
  • Regulate the Heat: Keep your thermostat set at the same temperature day and night to make sure pipes don’t freeze overnight.

The plumbing and boiler contractors at Phillips can certainly help you ensure that your pipes make it through the winter; and, should any of them freeze or burst, they’re available for emergency service.
