What to do if your pipes freeze

 

We live in Western Pennsylvania, and in certain months of the year, pipes are bound to freeze.  An unfortunate event, sure, but here are some steps to take to safety thaw them.  You may even be able to avoid or minimize serious damage.

 

  • Reduce pressure on the frozen pipes and minimize flooding if the pipes burst by shutting off the water main and opening all faucets just a bit.
  • Use a hair dryer or space heater to thaw the ice blockage.  For safety, do not use an open flame.
  • If you find any leaks, call Ron Miller Plumbing to make any necessary repairs to damaged pipes.

 

Even if no leaks are found, it is still be a good idea to let Ron Miller Plumbing experts inspect your pipes.  Some may have stretched, putting them at risk for future failure.

 

Tips for preventing frozen pipes

You can prevent frozen pipes by opening cabinets and allowing both hot and cold water drip overnight.  Make sure all pipes in unheated areas are insulated, and set your thermostat to no lower than 55 degrees.
