Wrap Your Pipes Up for Winter

2/10/2011

If you're feeling the chill in the air, there's a good chance your pipes may be, too!

To avoid freezing or bursting pipes, locate any pipes in your home that pass through unheated spaces—this will likely include any pipes in your garage, crawlspace, and attic. You can help these pipes keep warm by wrapping them up. Invest in foam rubber or fiberglass sleeves to do this, both of which you can find at your local hardware store.
