When the weather is very cold outside, run a very small steady stream of water through the pipe. This helps prevent pipes from freezing. It is very unlikely that a homeowner will run enough water to incur overage charges. A few dollars of overage charges is still much cheaper than hiring a plumber out for repairs to a broken line.
- Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.
- Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing. Be sure to move any harmful cleaners and household chemicals up out of the reach of children.
- Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at night. By temporarily suspending the use of lower nighttime temperatures, you may incur a higher heating bill, but you can prevent a much more costly repair job if pipes freeze and burst.
- If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F
