Frozen Pipes

How Do You Thaw Frozen Pipes and Prevent Future Freezing?

Typically, frozen pipes can be thawed out and any freezing rectified with heat and/or insulation. This will help prevent expensive issues down the road, such as frozen water expanding and bursting your pipes. Depending on the situation, a Plumbing One technician may recommend applying heat tape to your pipe system in addition to better insulation.

Why Do My Pipes Freeze?

Even if there is insulation around a pipe, it can sometimes shift. When cold weather is present, this may leave the pipe exposed to cold air, causing it to freeze. A Columbus plumber can inspect the pipes in your home or business and ensure they are properly insulated to prevent this from becoming an issue down the road.
