On track to be one of the coldest January's on record, by taking preventive measures as cold weather has arrived (it's never too late to prevent a impending disaster!), you can prevent freezing pipes and the costly damage that goes with them.
Where the trouble lies
"Some pipes are more prone to freezing than others because of their location in the home," explains Paul Abrams, spokesman for Roto-Rooter.
Pipes most at risk for freezing include:
- Exposed pipes in unheated areas of the home.
- Pipes located in exterior walls.
- Any plumbing on the exterior of the home.
