Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating Explains 3 Ways to Keep Your Pipes from Freezing  , Anchorage, Alaska

With winter upon us, it’s important to take preventative measures to keep your pipes from freezing over. Water expands when it freezes, adding pressure to the pipes that carry it. Pipes can easily break or burst, leading to costly repairs and even water damage. Providing the residents of Anchorage, AK, with quality plumbing services, Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating knows how to keep your pipes safe and warm this winter. Use these three simple steps to keep your pipes from freezing over:

  • Allow Water To Trickle Through Your Pipes: A trickle of water will help prevent your pipes from freezing over. This is a good idea if the weather gets especially cold or if you leave your house for an extended period of time.


  • Keep Your Home At A Warm Temperature: Your pipes have a better chance of surviving the winter if your home is kept at a warm temperature. You should leave the thermostat at 68 degrees or higher. If you leave your house for a long period of time, keep the temperature at 55 degrees.
  • Open Cabinet Doors: Your pipes won’t be as warm if the heat can’t get to them. Opening your kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors allows heat to circulate to those hard-to-reach areas.

In addition to their many heating and plumbing services, Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating also provides 24/7 emergency plumbing services to the residents of Anchorage. If your pipe bursts in the middle of the night, give Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating a call at (907) 344-2060. Arctic Chain Plumbing & Heating will always be there for you when you need them most.
