Keep Garage Doors Closed
Keeping the garage doors closed all the time is another effective way to keep the pipes from freezing. This is specifically important if the pipes pass through the garage. In most cases, garages have smooth concrete that keeps the room cold. The room is cold already, and you don’t have to let in freezing air to reduce the general temperature in the garage. An open garage door leaves water pipes vulnerable to freezing.
Open the Cabinets
Occasionally, open kitchen and bathroom cabinets to allow warm air circulate the plumbing. The warm air will help avert ice blockages and pressure accumulation in the water supply lines.
