Advice On How To Prevent Frozen Pipes
At this time of the year, you are in real danger of the water pipes in your home freezing and bursting. It is vital that you take the necessary steps to prevent your pipes from freezing during the cold winter months.
You should check that all water pipes in your attic are properly insulated with good quality pipe insulation. If the weather is particularly cold, a good tip is to leave your attic door open to allow heat from your home to rise up into the attic. This will raise the temperature in the attic by a couple of degrees, which will help to prevent your pipes from freezing and then bursting.
If you have outdoor water pipes, they must also be heavily insulated. You can read more on how to prevent frozen pipes here.
