A burst pipe would cause a lot of damage to your plumbing, walls, floors and foundation of your home.

Prior to having professional assistance, homeowners can do a few things to protect themselves from frozen pipes. First, keep your heat on, even if you are going to be away from home for awhile, it is important to keep your heat around 60 degrees.

And for that reason make sure you are not closing of rooms or areas in your house where water lines run.
