Frozen tubing leads to some chaotic and potentially expensive scenarios. Consequently, there are methods available to stop such catastrophes from happening. Before things get out of hand, have a read of the following tips, and stop your tubes from freezing.

Be proactive

Our first piece of advice is to prepare yourself. Try cutting some foam insulation blocks in order to obstruct those foundation vents that travel to crawl spaces. Make sure you remember where your water shutoff switch is in the case of an emergency. Something every property owner could also do with having is a temporary patching kit. They can utilise this to seal off any burst pipes.

Turn your thermostat up

You can try turning up the thermostat as well. If you reside in an old-fashioned structure that lies over a crawl space that isn’t insulated, the last thing you need to worry about is the heating bill. Turning your thermostat up shall heighten the air temperature within the crawl space. If you haven’t already, insulate and air seal your crawl space too.

Use a heater

One final suggestion would be to use a space heater. You can place it where it will prevent your tubes from freezing. What you must remember is that your objective is to keep the water inside the tubes warm instead of the space itself.
