Keep water running on a trickle to avoid pipes from freezing

Some simple tips can help you avoid some costly home repairs with this bitter cold.

Experts recommend you allow a small trickle of water to run overnight during these hard freezes. You can even use a bucket to collect that water and use it to water your plants.

Another way to keep your water moving is to open cabinet doors which exposes your pipes to warmer temperatures.

If your pipes do freeze, shut your water off, you can then try to warm the pipes up using a hair dryer or space heater.
