Protect Your Pipes from Freezing This Winter

With the cold weather approaching, it is important to take steps now to protect your pipes from freezing, which can leave you with no water and cause your pipes to burst, leading to expensive property damage. The most important step is to insulate the pipes most prone to freezing, especially near outside walls, and in crawl spaces, the attic and garage. It is also important to seal air leaks around windows and doors, and to disconnect hoses and drain the outdoor water supply before the first frost.
