• Eliminate drafts - All crawl space and basement vents, windows and doors should be repaired and closed, making sure a tight seal exists to keep out cold air.
• Insulate pipes - Insulating pipes in colder or unheated areas such as the crawl space or pipes located adjacent to an outside wall, helps to reduce the possibility of ruptured pipes. Also allow warm air to circulate around pipes located against outside walls accessed by cabinets.
• Leave faucet running - Keeping a continuous trickle of cold water running can help reduce the possibility of a pipe burst due to freezing.
