Halls Frozen Pipes
Halls frozen pipes service can help you to deal with frozen pipes even in the dead of winter. Frozen pipes can happen under the best of circumstances. You can take several steps to help to reduce the chance that your pipes will freeze but even the most cautious property owners are at risk of having to deal with frozen pipes.
Typically your pipes will freeze when the temperature dips below 32 degrees AND there is snow or ice on the ground. Once the pipes are frozen your property is at risk of a pipe break or leak. It is not an ideal situation but it is a situation that Halls frozen pipes service can help you with.
Avoiding the Freeze
Two simple steps can help you to reduce the chance of the pipes in your home freezing. You can leave your tap open just to a drizzle which will allow the water to flow slowly through the pipe. It is harder for flowing water to freeze then it is for water that is just sitting in the pipe.
The second step is to clear snow and ice from the foundation of the home where the pipes enter and exit the building. Before the threat of snow/ice and freezing temperatures it is a good idea to wrap your pipes with insulation. You can have Halls frozen pipes service come out before the winter sets in to check on your insulation and make suggestions for other preventive measures you can take to reduce the risk.
If Your Pipes Freeze
One of the signs that your pipes are frozen is no running water. When you turn on the tap and no water comes out it is likely that your pipes are frozen. Shut the faucet off, leaving it on can cause your pipe to burst. If your pipes freeze you can call Halls frozen pipes service to come out and get your water flowing again.
Should your pipes freeze and you notice a leak as they defrost than you should shut the main valve off to minimize damage and call Halls frozen pipes. Many times when pipes freeze the expansion of the ice causes the pipe to burst but you will notice the moisture dripping from the pipe before it actually bursts.
It is important to act quickly to minimize damage to the property. Call Halls frozen pipes service for a quick response!
