Perhaps one of the most common winter problems for many homeowners is that their pipes freeze and then end up bursting. While this is a fairly common occurrence, it is also one that is fairly expensive. One of the best ways that you can help prevent it from happening to you is by making sure your pipes are properly insulated. If you find that they are not, never fear, insulating pipes is a task that is fairly easy. Just follow these instructions.
Now that you have finished insulting the pipes of your home, you should notice that your pipes don't freeze over anymore. That is, at least on the inside of your home. You still need to make sure that you don't have anything attached to the faucets outside. If you don't, you can easily end up having your pipes still freeze up, and potentially burst.
