Household Water Prevention Information

In Utah and Idaho the winters can get long and harsh, the cold can be unbearable especially in Logan, Utah. Cache Valley, Utah and surrounding areas like Bear Lake, Box Elder County, Weber County, Davis County, Salt Lake County, Utah County and many others see numerous days per year with temps below zero. These cold, harsh winter months can be damaging to water pipes.

It's best to take precautions ahead of time to try and prevent any damage later on. This year we decided to put window film on some of our windows to help keep the heat in and the cold out. We have also upgraded our garage door with a high quality, insulated door and added another layer of blown-in insulation to our attic. We've already noticed a huge difference with those upgrades. We also keep the cupboard doors opened at night during the colder temps to help reduce the risk of having frozen pipes under the kitchen sink as its on an outside wall. Keeping the doors open allows for better circulation of heat.

We have clients that live in a manufactured home that sits about 3 feet off the ground here in Logan, Utah. We have advised them to have a licensed plumber install heat tape to their pipes under the home since the pipes are above ground and run the distance of the home. This will help tremendously in keeping their pipes from freezing.
