From water not running to the potential hazard of them bursting, there are a multitude of reasons why frozen pipes are bad. With frozen pipes, it’s important to keep your eye on them just in case anything major happens. Here are a few signs to look out for:

Temperature

This one may be obvious but if you’re experiencing unusually cold temperatures, it’s crucial to take precautions. Such as letting the faucet drip, applying heating tape or adding a bit of insulation.

No Running Water

Have you turned the faucet on only to experience nothing or just a slight trickle? This is a sign that your pipes may be frozen and it needs to be checked out. Lack of running water can inhibit day-to-day activities, act fast if you notice your water has slowed or stopped.

Strange Smells

If you notice a strange smell in your home, check out the pipes. Sometimes if a drain blocked or partially blocked, the odor can escape by backing up in the direction of your property.
