The obvious answer is that you have to keep them warmer!

Why is it Bad When Pipes Freeze?

Water expands when it is frozen and turns to ice. When water freezes inside pipes, it is no different. The water expands, and when it expands enough, pipes burst. That causes mayhem like a flooded home, or a closed business.

Frozen pipes are nothing to mess around with. If you turn on a faucet in your home and no water comes out during the winter, give us a call immediately. There is a good chance you have frozen water in a pipe, and you do not want it to burst the pipe.

Steps to Take to Keep Your Pipes from Freezing

1. Insulate the pipes. This can be done in a variety of ways, but is easiest with pipe insulating foam.

2. If you know that it is going to be particularly cold, allow for a little water to run from your faucet. This sounds wasteful, but it is much less wasteful than pipes bursting (if you want to see the damage it can cause, just Google image search frozen pipes).

3. Keep the cabinet doors underneath your sinks open in order to let in the heat.

4. There are products that help to monitor the temperature of the water in your pipes. Ask your local home improvement store about the details if you would like to take on that project yourself. Or, you can give us a call. We are happy to come help!

If Your Pipes Are Already Frozen…

A broken pipe due to freezing can create massive damages to your home. If your water is no longer running, and the outside temperature is below freezing, there is large chance that your pipes are already frozen.

If you can locate where exactly the pipes are frozen, unthaw them with a small space heater or blowdryer. Be sure to take notice if the pipes have already burst.

If you can see the pipes are burst, do not unthaw the pipes yet! Unthawing them will flood the room you are in! Give us a call immediately! (833) 539-9153

Let’s be honest: Nobody thinks about their plumbing and heating until there’s a problem.

What most people don’t realize is that most of those problems can be anticipated and often avoided with regular maintenance – usually at a far lower cost than a repair or replacement.

“This past week I had the need for a plumber and I reviewed the telephone book and selected from the advertisements your company to attend to the matter. The company sent Austin Steinbach to attend to and review the problem. He is a very knowledgeable young man who communicates well and does his work in a very thorough and professional manner. I was very satisfied with his service. Mr. Steinbech is a credit to your company. Very often in communities someone asks whether they are aware of a plumber or other technician that can be recommended. In this regard, I am comfortable in recommending Mr. Steinbech and your company. Thank you for the service rendered.”

“Quick & competent work done to high satisfaction. Darrell Begay provided quick service and very professional work when he came to install a new toilet seat. We had not been able to do the work ourselves, so it was a relief to have Darrell and Done Plumbing get here so quickly to take care of the task. We appreciate all Done as done for us”

When an issue arose with the clean-outs, Kieth quickly resolved it to our satisfaction & to the way he had previously described. From the estimate to the conclusion of the project we had confidence in Kieth. He is a good ambassador for your company.”

“Just a note of thanks for being the Best plumbing and heating company. I have used you often and have been impressed every time. I called for a drain cleaning and was told a technician could come the same day. He arrived an hour ealier than was quoted, was very professional and did a great job at a very reasonable price with my coupon that he honored. I would never use another company and would recommend you to anybody that needs help. The technician that did such a great job was Austin, but every technician you have sent has been the best. Thanks again for such a wonderful company”

~ Karla W Golden, CO

“It was very professional, prompt & the technician explained many things well. Very happy throughout the whole process – from the customer service rep who answered the phone this morning to the technician explaining building codes to me.
