Preventing & Thawing Frozen Pipes

Having your water lines freeze during the winter is a huge inconvenience and can result in costly repairs. When water freezes it expands which in some cases cause the pipes in your home to break. Pipes that are more likely to freeze are those that are exposed to severe cold or are in unheated areas in the home. Not to worry, Losch Services is here to help!


How to Prevent Frozen Pipes

  • Inspect areas around your household where water lines are located.
  • Make sure these areas are properly heated or pipes are insulated
  • Consider investing in pipe insulation like pipe sleeves, heat tape, or heat cables
  • Keep garage door closed during extremely cold weather
  • Disconnect and drain garden hoses

How to Thaw Frozen Pipes

  • As you thaw frozen pipes keep faucets open as the water begins to melt
  • Apply heat to section of pipe that is frozen (Do Not Use Flammable Materials to Thaw Pipes)
  • Wrap frozen pipes with a hot water soaked towel
  • Open closet and cabinet doors to allow heat from inside the home to circulate
  • Cut water to exterior faucets and leave open to let water drain
  • Contact the professional at Losch Services
