Gather Your Supplies:
Head to your local hardware store and grab some pipe insulation sleeves, heat tape, and zip ties.
Identify Vulnerable Areas:
Check out your plumbing system. Focus on pipes in unheated areas like the attic, crawl spaces, or exterior walls.
Wrap it Up:
For exposed pipes, use the insulation sleeves. Wrap them around the pipes and secure with zip ties. For extra protection, consider applying heat tape along the length of the pipe.
Seal the Gaps:
Don’t forget to seal any gaps or cracks in walls or floors that expose your pipes to the cold. A little caulking can go a long way.
