How to prevent your pipes from freezing
Insulate your pipes
Pipe insulation is one of the easiest ways to reduce the risk of freezing, and it’s a relatively affordable solution. You can buy foam pipe insulation for hot and cold water pipes, which is easy to install on exposed pipes indoors and outdoors. However, installing insulation may be tricky if your pipes are hidden behind a wall or in an awkward position, so you’ll need to consult the professionals.
Service your boiler
Ensure your boiler is working efficiently to reduce the risk of frozen pipes. If your central heating system isn’t working correctly, there may be cold spots in the pipework which are more vulnerable to freezing.
