Protect Your Home From Frozen Water Pipes

As colder temperatures approach, Lynchburg Water Resources would like to share some tips for keeping your pipes from freezing: 

  1. Keep your garage doors closed to protect water lines in that space.
  2. Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to help heat circulate around pipes.
  3. Keep your house a consistent temperature.
  4. If you’re planning to be away, keep the heat on in your house and no lower than 55 degrees.
  5. Keep a cold water drip from faucets to prevent water lines from freezing.
