If not prepared properly, frozen pipes can cause your home plenty of issues that can include pipe bursts, radiator failure, or even a complete heating unit failure. On nights of a possible deep freeze, it’s imperative to drip your faucets enough to keep the water flowing to prevent a freeze. If left unattended, a burst pipe can lead to malfunctioning toilets, compromised showers, or loss of tap water. These repairs can become costly but can be avoided with insulated piping and keeping a thermostat to at least 65 degrees. It is important to tune up your furnace to keep your water pipes protected and running at full capacity.
