Winters in the North East can be freezing. During this time, people tend to put on extra clothing to stay warm when going outside. Jackets, scarfs, and hats all act as insulators. Just as you dress up for warmth during the winter, you should dress up vulnerable pipes to help keep them warm. As temperatures drop below freezing, the water inside pipes can freeze. Frozen pipes can cause water to become blocked and pipes to burst. A frozen pipe can make it so that no hot water circulates through the home. A pipeline that breaks because of expanding water will leak water into the house (creating flood situations). If you feel your pipes are frozen, call an emergency plumber Manhattan.
Our talented team of Manhattan plumbers can identify at risks pipes, and then they can insulate them. Piping is dressed in materials that keep the pipes and water within them warm (even in below freezing temperatures). Not all piping needs to be insulated. Typically, pipes that are outside, close to external walls, inside garages, or near the roof should be wrapped. We will come to your home an evaluate your entire system.
