Yes, MassAutoQuote.com is a website for Massachusetts auto insurance. In Massachusetts it has been very cold lately and, even though we’re an auto insurance quote website, many auto insurers also own homes!
With that, let’s talk about the dreaded: Frozen Pipes!
Frozen water in pipes can cause water pressure buildup, which eventually will lead to pipes bursting at their weakest point, causing water damage to your home or business.
To keep water in pipes from freezing, take the following precautions:
- Keep the temperature in your home or business above 65 degrees at all times.
- Seal cracks and holes in outside walls and foundations near water pipes with caulking.
- Keep cabinet doors open during cold spells to allow warm air to circulate around pipes, particularly in the kitchen and bathroom.
