Please take precautions to prevent water pipes from freezing. Some suggestions include; Insulate exposed pipes, pipes in crawl spaces and pipes in your attic. Use approved heat tapes only for areas they are approved for. Seal leaks that allow cold air where pipes are located. Disconnect garden hoses and drain pipes. When the mercury plummets, allow water to trickle, keep your thermostat set above 55 degrees and open kitchen and bathroom cabinets where water pipes are located. For additional tips, check the American Red Cross website.
