Winter doesn’t just bring cold weather. It brings frozen pipes. Freezing water turns into ice within the pipe, causing it to expand and block the line, making for some Amarillo plumbing nightmares. Make sure to take preventative measures before the winter months arrive. In order to avoid frozen pipes and the damage that comes along with them, identify where the trouble lies. Pipes more prone to freezing include pipes in unheated areas of the home and pipes in exterior walls or along the exterior of the home.
To prevent your pipes from freezing, leave cabinet doors open under sinks so heat can circulate around uninsulated pipes. Insulate pipes in unheated areas, outside walls, in garages and basements. Turn on the heat and set no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
