The cold weather brings with it beautiful snow and the most cheerful time of the year. However, it also has its drawbacks! The winter season can cause some annoyances, like frozen pipes in your home, which limit or cut off your water supply, and may even result in some burst pipes.

If you’re currently struggling with this situation, Zott Construction DKI in Stormville will give you a few tips on how you can thaw your frozen pipes.

How to Deal with Frozen Pipes

  1. Start by determining which pipes are frozen. To do this, you should open up the faucets in your home and notice if there’s one with low or no water supply.
  2. Look for the pipes that feed those faulty faucets (they may be in a cold spot like outside or near a vent). You can use your hand or a thermometer to know which one is frozen. 
  3. Remember that frozen pipes can burst and crack, so look for leaks in them. If you find one, use this guide to fix them temporarily.
  4. Heat up the damaged pipes. To do this, you can employ a space heater, your blow dryer or a heating pad. Just make sure that there aren’t flammable objects near.
  5. Keep heating the frozen pipes until the water pressure in your faucets is restored.
  6. Once you’re done, make sure that this won’t happen again by wrapping your pipes and insulating them. 
  7. Lastly, call a professional team to deal with any leaks, replace any pipes, or thaw pipes that can’t be reached easily.
