How to prevent burst and frozen pipes this winter

As winter approaches, home owners need take the right measure to prepare their properties for the cold weather.

  1. Set the thermostat to a min temperature, round-the-clock, about 12C. The heating costs are justified when you consider a costly pipe freeze. Most modern thermostats come with winter option that constantly keeps pipes in the right temperature.

  2. Insulate exposed pipes in basement, attics, garage and kitchen cabinet

  3. If you are going away, make sure you shut down the draining and water system.
