Stay Ahead of Freezing Water in Your Mercer County Home
Although the winter of 2023 has been unseasonably warmer in Mercer and Burlington counties, NJ freezing temperatures at night still threaten water pipes in your home or business--especially if pipes haven't been properly winterized.
Here are some tips to ensure the pipes in your home or business don't burst and cause significant damage to property.
Insulate Your Pipes: Wrap your pipes with insulation material such as foam sleeves or fiberglass insulation wraps.
Proper Heating in Your Home: Set your thermostat to a temperature warm enough to keep pipes from freezing, usually between 45-55 degrees. This is especially true when you leave your home for an extended period of time.
Winterize Outdoor Faucets: Water should be turned off and the faucet should be drained, and hoses removed.
Be aware of sudden drop in water pressure--such as a loud banging noise coming from the pipes-could indicate a leak in the pipe resulting in lower pressure.
Prevention is always the strategy when dealing with freezing water issues.
