Can Pipes Freeze in Florida?

We Floridians may not see freezing temperatures often, but when we do, be aware that pipes and water lines can and will freeze! What can you do to prevent frozen pipes and water lines?

Here are a few tips:

  • Keep one or two faucets running slowly
  • Direct warm air to any colder areas of your home
  • Leave cabinet doors open to allow warm air into the cabinet-especially if your kitchen sink is on an outside wall
  • Disconnect your hose from the outside faucet
  • Seal leaks that allow cold air into your home where pipes are located
