Did you know that your interior pipes can freeze?

Here are some helpful tips:

  1. Locate and insulate pipes in or near exterior walls or unheated interior spaces (attics, basements, garages.)

  2. Locate and exercise shut-off valves leading to the water meter.

  3. Let cold water drip from a faucet served by exposed pipes to prevent freezing during cold snaps.

  4. Keep the heat no lower than 55° F or winterize the pipes if you’re planning to be away during cold weather.
