Preventing frozen pipes
Preventing frozen pipes should be something that’s at the top of people’s minds this winter. While no one ever wants burst pipes, with the cost of living being so high, additional bills on top could put families under huge financial pressure this winter.
Fortunately, investing in the maintenance of pipes is much cheaper than replacing them if they break.
Pipe insulation can be purchased online for cheap and should be used in rooms where there isn’t adequate insulation such as the attic, garage or cellar as these rooms are more prone to freezing pipes.
Evan explained: “Rubber or sponge insulation sleeves can give your pipes added protection when the temperature plunges. There are other alternatives such as heating tape that works like an electric blanket for your pipes but they can be costly and dangerous if you don’t follow the instructions correctly. To be safe, you should avoid heating tape if you don’t know what you are doing.”
While everyone is looking for ways to save this winter, turning off the heating could cost Britons more money in the long run.
