3 helpful hints to prevent frozen pipes in your home:

  1. Turn up the heating thermostat
  2. Open one cold and one hot tap so they are running as slow as possible, a constant drip will suffice, this will help to keep water constantly running in the pipes, running water will not freeze. This will also help to prevent bursts.
  3. Open any cupboard doors which contain pipes, this may even be kitchen units to allow the warm air to circulate. If you have frozen pipes, wrap them with warm dry cloths or towels or even use an hairdryer to help defrost them but on a warm setting. Not high heat as this could cause further damage.
