Avoid frozen pipes during the freezing season!
This winter, get the peace of mind that your pipes are secure, in terms of:
- Repairing problematic pipes. Consider whether there are any plumbing problems that need attention. It may be surprising that it’s cheaper, more effective, and takes less time to address these small problems like leaks or slow drains before they are exacerbated by freezing temperatures.
- Maintaining sewers and drains. Backed up maintenance lines can actually invite debris like mulch or leaves to enter your pipes, and the resulting clog can make it easier for your pipes to then freeze. That’s because stationary water freezes faster.
- Insulating your pipes. If your pipes have a tendency to freeze, it’s a good idea to get them insulated so you don’t have to worry about them possibly bursting and causing major damage in your home. Our expert insulators know how to protect your pipes and minimize that risk, even after winter is already well underway.
- Taking precautions during frigid temps. When a cold snap hits, there are a few steps you can take to protect your pipes – especially if you’re behind on upgrading your insulation or you have a vulnerable pipe along an outside-facing wall. Opening cabinet and basement doors, kicking your thermostat up a notch, and checking that your vent registers are open in the rooms you need to circulate warm air can all help protect your pipes temporarily.
- Turn the water off, or let it drip? Depending on the circumstances, during frigid temperatures, you may also consider turning the water off or, alternatively, gently running water through a dripping faucet, for example, to keep the flow going through the pipes.
- Safely installing new appliances. Are you considering upgrading or installing a fixture or feature that uses a water line? At Anyzek, we’ve got you covered when it comes to updating or adding appliances that involve pipes that could be prone to freezing. Whether it’s a dishwasher, icemaker, garbage disposal, faucet, toilet, sump pump, water heater, washer and dryer, or bathroom fixture our experts can make sure your pipes are safe.
