With colder temperatures here, Troy officials are sharing tips on how to prevent household water pipes from freezing:

  • Keep your thermostat set to the same temperature for both day and night, even when you are not home.
  • Close all exterior doors, including garage doors and other exterior entryways.
  • Open hot and cold faucets to a slow drip during the coldest time of the day or night.
  • You may consider keeping kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors open to allow heat to reach an uninsulated pipe.
  • Know the location of your internal shut off valves in case of a leak or frozen pipe.
