Protect your water pipes from freezing during this cold weather:
?Let a small stream of water flow from a faucet. Running water through a pipe, even at a trickle, helps prevent it from freezing.
?Keep exterior doors and windows near exposed plumbing tightly closed. Cold winds whistling through overlooked openings can quickly freeze exposed water pipes.
??Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing, especially if your sinks are on an exterior wall.
??Use a space heater to increase the temperature in a room with plumbing you know is prone to freezing. Always follow safety guidelines and never leave a heater unattended.
?Leave the heat on in your home set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.
