The 5-Day Forecast looks frigid! Below zero temps can be uncomfortable not only for you and your family but also for your house. The Minnesota heating and cooling experts at Minneapolis St. Paul Plumbing Heating Air offer some tips and advice to help you avoid the winter headache known as frozen pipes.

The best way to handle frozen pipes is to avoid getting them in the first place. There are some simple, proactive steps you can take now to prevent your pipes from freezing:

  • Look at your home’s insulation. If you’re in the process of or thinking about remodeling your home, that is the perfect time to add upgrading your insulation to the list. This will not only improve your home’s overall energy efficiency, but it will also help keep your pipes nice and toasty warm.
  • If you have an attached garage, keep all of the doors closed as much as possible. This will prevent cold air from entering your home.
  • If you are headed out of town for any length of time, have a family member or neighbor check in on your house.
