As temperatures continue to drop in the winter season, you’re probably preparing your house to withstand the long and challenging winter. You might be cutting the grass one more time, making sure your insulation is squared away and even checking that your outdoor water is turned off. While it’s great to pay attention to winterizing the exterior of your house, you also need to consider the inside of your home as well. Your plumbing is extremely vulnerable to winter and freezing temperatures, and if you don’t take care to prevent damage, you could wind up with frozen, burst, and damaged pipes that destroy your home and cost you thousands of dollars.
When the temperature drops to below freezing, the water in your pipes will begin to cool. The colder it gets, the more likely it is that water can freeze inside your pipes. What exactly does a frozen pipe mean? Well, the ice inside your pipes blocks the natural flow of water inside your plumbing, increasing the pressure applied to your pipes and forcing water through your pipes at higher and more forceful speeds. The higher this pressure builds, the more danger you’re in of a burst pipe; the water pressure being so great that it breaks your pipes apart. A burst pipe is a huge safety hazard for many reasons. The dripping water could connect with nearby wiring or electrical outlets and create a possible electrocution hazard. It can also cause severe water damage to your property, which could weaken your foundation and will destroy your furniture, flooring, and anything else in your home.
Monitoring the health of your plumbing in the winter season is a challenge for a few different reasons. First of all, your home’s plumbing system is huge. In fact, your plumbing is so extensive that over ten percent of homeowners experience a daily leak somewhere in their plumbing that they simply don’t notice, just because there are too many places to check. Even the smallest of cracks in your plumbing can cause thousands of dollars in damage and leak hundreds of gallons of water, but with such an extensive plumbing system how can you possibly keep an eye on it all?
