The coldest months in Colorado are December, January and February. Here are some great tips from Allstate Insurance to protect your home from freezing pipes.

Prevent Your Pipes From Freezing

Disconnect all gardening hoses and install covers on all outside faucets.

Keep your house temperature at 68 degrees or higher, even if you're leaving the house for an extended period of time.

Open cabinet doors below sinks to allow heat from the home to circulate.

Identify the location of the main water valve and the valve on your water heater. (Learning the location of these valves may come in handy during an emergency.)

Wrap pipes nearest exterior walls and in crawl spaces with pipe insulation or with heating tape. This can prevent freezing, especially for interior pipes that run along outside walls.

Close all windows near water pipes; cover or close open-air vents. Freezing temperatures combined with wind drafts can cause pipes to freeze more frequently.

Heat your basement and consider weather sealing your windows.

Insulate outside walls and unheated areas of your home.

If you plan to be away from home for an extended period of time, shut off water supply valves to your washing machine.
