6 Ways to Keep Pipes From Freezing During Extreme Cold
1. Open cabinet doors under sinks to allow warm air to circulate.
2. Potential problem areas inside walls can be heated with a low wattage incandescent bulb. Ensure there are no flammable materials near the bulb.
3. Close or seal foundation vents near water pipes.
4. Insulate foundation walls with rigid foam insulation.
5. If the crawlspace is accessible blow warm air from inside the home down to the foundation.
6. Running a trickle of water to keep the water flowing can prevent burst pipes when ice begins to form inside pipes.
