Good Advice from Our Insurance Carrier

 With the recent stretch of very cold weather we have had several reports of frozen pipes bursting and causing extensive water damage.

Here are a few reminders:

• Keep building temperatures as consistent as possible, never less than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

• Insulate areas where water supply lines are located and eliminate drafts.

• If you have water pipes in basements, crawl spaces, or outside walls, insulate the pipes, using pipe-sleeves or other insulating material.

• Allow warm air to circulate by opening up doors to closets and cabinets where pipe chases are located.

• On at least a daily basis, all areas of the building should be monitored for open windows, heating failures and water leaks. This especially includes nights, weekends, and school breaks.

• Know how to shut off the water supply.

If you suspect that a pipe is particularly susceptible to freezing, as an emergency measure, leave water running at a trickle to prevent freezing. This is never recommended as a permanent measure and should be monitored frequently.

Have a plan in place for responding to water leaks and heating failures. You should have a plan for safely thawing any pipe you believe to be frozen; however, if you are unsure, call a professional. Never use torches or devices with open flames to thaw frozen pipes.
