Fort Collins residents routinely face below freezing temperatures during the winter months. Sudden and extreme drops in temperature combined with poor pipe insulation can result in frozen water pipes. Frozen pipes can easily burst and when that happens, your home is left vulnerable to severe damage. So don’t let winter get the best of you—call Lighten Up Electric and Plumbing and avoid frozen and burst pipes this winter!
Frozen Pipe Prevention
At Lighten Up, our expert plumbers have seen and repaired their fair share of frozen or burst water pipes across many years of combined experience. These plumbing disasters can be avoided with some advice and maintenance services from your Lighten Up Plumbing experts:
- Proper insulation is essential to preventing pipes from freezing.
- Heat cables, heat tape or heat wraps may be applied to your your pipes for more extensive protection. Neighborhood stocks only top quality heat cables and tape for maximum reliability and effectiveness.
- Water pipes attached to garden hoses and other outdoor spigots are a high freezing risk. They aren’t exposed to your home’s indoor heating like the rest of your plumbing system. This makes shutting off and draining the water leading to all outside faucets critical to avoiding frozen pipes in the winter time.
