Preventing frozen pipes is much easier than replacing pipes that freeze and burst. And that’s not even considering paying for the damage to your home and possessions that can result from burst pipes.
Water pipes and meters can freeze within hours of the onset of sub-freezing weather—if they’re exposed to cold air or drafts. Property owners—not Aquarion—are responsible for protecting their water pipes and water meters (interior or exterior) from cold air and wind.
Fortunately, that’s relatively easy to do. These steps will help you prevent the damage, expense, and inconveniences of having your pipes or water meter freeze.
