We get it: around our parts, it doesn’t normally get as bitterly cold as it does in other parts of the country.

Of course, this depends on how protected the pipes are and where exactly they’re located, but it’s important to be aware of this problem and what to do if it happens to you.
Without taking preventive measures, you could very well find yourself facing frozen pipes, and subsequently could face cracked or burst plumbing.

If you do have any problems with your pipes as we progress into fall and winter quickly approaches, contact a professional Edgewood, NM plumber, such as a member of our staff.
