- Prevent Pipes from Freezing:
Let the cold water drip from the faucet.
Open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.
Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at night.
- What if Your Pipes Do Freeze:
Shut off the water immediately.
Thaw pipes with warm air with a hair dryer or space heater.
Be careful turning water back on once thawed.
