Preventing Frozen Pipes with Expected Sub-Freezing Temperatures
Posted on Saturday December 30, 2017
With frigid temperatures predicted for the next week, we ask that you take some precautions to prevent your pipes from freezing. 

Here are a few options to help prevent your pipes from freezing:
- Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.
- Let the cold water drip from faucets served by exposed pipes.
- Keep your thermostat set at a slightly higher temperature at night to help fight against the lower temperatures outside.
