Real Estate – Prevent Frozen Pipes
- Keep heat at minimum 60 degrees.
- Open cabinets under sinks, especially if on exterior wall.
- Set faucets to a steady drip, especially if on exterior wall.
- Keep bathroom doors open at night as thermostats are usually regulating temp from far away. This can cause the temperature in bathroom/near pipes to be much lower if door is closed.
- Make sure all windows are closed and locked to prevent drafts.
- Know where your main water shut-off is located.
