A leading national insurance company has stated that the average cost for a busted pipe due to freezing is $15,000.00 dollars in property damage. Now that is not a good present to have during the holidays. Our technicians at Jordan & Sons Plumbing and Electric can give many free tips on how to prevent this sort of damage. A few of  them we  will explain in this story.

  • Disconnect the garden hoses from the outside faucets. This prevents the water that freezes in the hose from traveling back up to the faucet causing a rupture valve or line.
  • Buy inexpensive outside faucet covers that can protect the ice from forming on a faucet during a rain shower or ice storm. (We will be giving this out during our service visits during December at NO CHARGE)
  • Bump the heat up in the home a few degrees.
  • Open the cabinets and let the warm area circulate under the sinks. Many time the air under your cabinets is much cooler.
  • Last but not least close off the vents around the home.
