The best way to protect your pipes in the winter time is to drip water down the pipes at a slow trickle. You can also open cabinet doors up to allow warm air to circulate in and around the plumbing. Make sure you keep any harmful chemicals out of reach of the children if you plan on opening up your cabinets for circulation. If you have any water lines in your garage then make sure you do not leave the garage door open. Cover exposed pipes or faucets on the exterior of the home as well to help eliminate the freezing of your pipes. I hope this helps you and your family to protect your home in the freezing days and nights of winter.
