Do you have a house in Auburn or Opelika and are wondering how to prevent your pipes from freezing this winter? Once the weather turns crisp, before homeowners cozy up to their fireplaces or under their goose-down duvets, there’s something critical they need to tend to first outside: their home’s pipes. Learning how to keep pipes from freezing is one of those essential homeowner skills you definitely don’t want to overlook.
Why? Because when water freezes, it expands, which can cause pipes to burst—flooding your basement, ruining your drywall, and costing thousands of dollars in repairs. In fact, the Hartford Insurance Co. reports that the average claim for damage from a frozen pipe is a whopping $18,000, according to its analysis of five years of winter claims data.
