Winters in the Midwest are no joke. Within the past month we've seen some of the coldest temperatures we'll see all year, meaning it is prime time for frozen pipes. 

With the recent below-freezing temperatures in the Chicagoland area, it is important to take precautionary measures to help prevent frozen pipes and pipe breaks in your home. Make sure to consistently check your kitchen, bathrooms, and maintenance rooms for leaks. You can keep faucets at a small drip overnight to allow water to move through the system and prevent pipes from freezing due to lack of use during the coldest hours of the day.

Another practice is to open up any cabinet doors located under the sink to allow warm air to circulate closer to the pipes. Additionally, keeping your garage door closed during the winter can help to prevent frozen pipes both in the garage area as well as throughout the entire house.
