Every year frozen pipes cause extensive water damage in RI - often in homes that are vacant for the winter. The good news is this damage is preventable. Here are some things to do prevent your pipes from freezing:
SET HEAT TO AT LEAST 55 DEGREES
IF YOU'RE NOT THERE, HAVE SOMEONE CHECK FOR HEAT AND COLD SPOTS EVERY DAY
OPEN CABINET DOORS UNDER SINKS TO HELP WARM AIR CIRCULATE
MAKE SURE THE WATER TO OUTDOOR FAUCETS IS SHUT OFF
KNOW WHERE YOUR WATER MAIN IS IN CASE YOU NEED TO SHUT IT OFF
USE ALL YOUR PLUMBING FIXTURES AT LEAST ONCE DURING THE DAY
