During the deep winter freeze, pipes may develop ice and form a blockage. Frozen pipes are a top risk of property damage when the temperature drops, especially for homes that are more than 20 years old. Live in a warmer climate? Don’t forget that your pipes can freeze and burst when a cold spell hits.
If a frozen pipe bursts, it can send water pouring into your home and cause more than $5,000 in damage. Know how to prevent frozen pipes in winter weather and keep your home warm and dry.
