Preventing Frozen Pipes in Your Rockford Home

How can I prevent frozen pipes?

  • Install a WiFi thermostat.  Internet-enabled thermostats can communicate with your smart phone or by email, so that when you are away from home, you can monitor the temperature in your house.  Never worry again about coming home from a long weekend or vacation to a furnace that isn’t working and pipes that have frozen or burst.
  • Disconnect any outdoor hoses and winterize your sprinkler system
  • Insulate pipes and pay close attention to pipes in vulnerable areas, such as outside walls, attics, and crawlspaces.  Heat tape can also help prevent pipe freezing.
  • Maintain your furnace or boiler.  Proper maintenance with an annual clean and check will help keep your heat source operating reliably during cold snaps, thus protecting your plumbing as well.

What should I do if I suspect a pipe is frozen?

  • Know the location of your water main and how to shut it off quickly.  If you see water damage or other signs a pipe has burst, it’s important to stop the flow of water as soon as possible.
  • Schedule an Axberg plumber immediately.  Don’t wait for a pipe to thaw out to confirm that it was frozen.  Pipes can burst during the thawing process if the problem is not handled by a professional.

With care and monitoring, you can prevent costly damage to your Stateline home from freezing water pipes.
