How to Protect Your Pipes from Freezing
One very important element of preparing your home for winter is to protect your pipes from freezing. While this isn’t always foremost in a homeowner’s mind, it is extremely necessary. Water that is frozen in pipes can cause the pipes to crack or leak, leaving you with a costly mess that can disrupt your entire plumbing system. At Waldman Plumbing and Heating, we can protect your pipes and winterize your system, saving you a lot of stress and hassle.
Frozen pipe prevention is a job that is best done by a professional, since no one wants to run the risk of unknowingly doing an insufficient job. When you call us, we will come in and can evaluate those pipes that are at most risk of freezing. Your pipes will be thoroughly insulated with foam pipe insulation and electric fans may be set up to blow hot air from the furnace onto pipes that are most at risk. The area between the wall or floorboards and the pipes will also be insulated in order to prevent cold air from affecting your pipes.
When it comes to your pipes, a bit of prevention is much more efficient and less costly than a plumbing repair job. If your pipes freeze, you run the risk of your household’s whole plumbing system faltering. Water that seeps through a burst pipe can destroy your possessions and pose a health hazard to your family. Taking the necessary precaution of properly insulating your pipes can prevent a big headache in the future.
