How to tell if your pipes are frozen

Frozen Pipe

In the cold months, a home’s plumbing becomes vulnerable. As temperatures drop, residual water in the lines can freeze, potentially leading to bursting pipes. It’s crucial for homeowners to recognize the signs of frozen pipes and know when to call a plumber.

Why Do Pipes Freeze?

Even strong pipes can succumb to the powerful force of frozen water. When water freezes, it expands, putting immense pressure on pipes, and potentially causing cracks or bursts. Lack of insulation in areas like crawl spaces and basements can make pipes susceptible to freezing.
