As temperatures drop in the winter season, it is always best to prevent your pipes from freezing. With low thermostat settings in your house or poor insulation, the water in your pipes can freeze, putting pressure on your pipes from the inside. Frozen pipes can then crack or burst, leading to structural damage. Structural damages can result in hefty bills from the plumber, but you can easily avoid many of these issues. With a few basic adjustments, you can protect your pipes from freezing, so they should last for years.
