One of the most common reasons why water pipes burst is due to freezing. When the temperature drops, the water inside the pipes can freeze, expand, and cause the pipes to burst. To prevent this from happening, there are a few steps you can take:

  • Insulation. Insulating exposed pipes with insulation wraps or foam sleeves is a common and useful way to prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Seal air leaks. Sealing air leaks around windows, doors, and ventilation fans can prevent cold air from reaching the pipes.

  • Let faucets drip. Running water through pipes helps to prevent them from freezing, so be sure to let faucets drip slightly during cold weather.
