- Insulate exposed pipes and hose bibs, backflow prevents for irrigation systems.
- Keep garage doors closed,some homes contain water softeners and filtration in their garage that can freeze if not insulated.
- Leave cabinets on exterior walls with plumbing opened( be sure to secure any chemical that may be underneath to keep out of reach from children and pets.)
- You can also leave fixtures on a drip that may be facing an exterior wall to prevent pipes in the walls from freezing.
