High Standards of Plumbing Burnley

Plumbing is one of the most important yet ignored parts of our home. Responsible for running some of the most essential household appliances, plumbing systems should be well maintained and taken care of all year round but particularly when the weather is cold.

Keeping your pipes insulated is one of the best ways to help prevent frozen pipes – one of the most common plumbing issues in winter. Lagging is a foam material that insulates the pipes and is perfect for helping to keep the water running normally. Pipes that are exposed to draughts or the outside should be insulated as the heat from your home may not be enough to keep the water thawed out.

Protect Your Plumbing Against Freezing Temperaturesplumbers in burnley

Heating up your home is another great way to help prevent plumbing problems arising from cold weather. Most modern boilers have a frost protection thermostat that kicks in when temperatures drop too low, so it’s worth checking if your boiler is fitted with this feature. If not, it’s a good idea to make sure your home is adequately heated or that your heating comes on a couple of times a day to keep the temperature regulated.

Dealing with frozen pipes can be a tricky business, especially if they are frozen in more than one place. Finding the spot that is frozen is the first thing you should do; check areas that are exposed to cold temperatures first. Once you’ve found the area that is frozen, open the tap closest to it so the water can drip out as it thaws. Alternatively, use a hairdryer or hot packs to try and thaw the ice, though take care as pipes can burst and start leaking water, so protect nearby possessions.
