In order to prevent frozen pipes, there are some simple steps you can take.

– Soak a rug in cold water and wrap it around the lowest pipe of your house. This will help prevent a buildup of heat that could cause frozen pipes.

– Install a programmable thermostat to maintain a steady temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

– If you have a crawl space under your house, be sure to insulate the area with polystyrene foam board and add insulation in the attic above it.

– Maintain at least 3 inches of insulation on all water pipes outside your house
