Frozen Pipe Protection
Winters in Northern Ontario are not to be taken lightly. Especially in regards to protecting your plumbing!
Frozen plumbing pipes can actually be one of the most devastating winter hazards for homeowners in Canada. Although it may seem like a small issue, frozen pipes can potentially:
- Damage your heat circulation,
- Halt your water flow,
- Cause water damage to your home,
- And increase the risk of mould.
Gravenhurst Heat Line Equipment
If living in Gravenhurst, Ontario, has taught our crew anything, it’s that installing heat line protection is imperative. With winter temperatures being so unpredictable, homeowners have to be prepared for ice storms, blizzards and sporadic cold fronts at all times.
That’s why we always encourage our customers to install heat cables!
What is a heat cable?
A heat cable is an electric wire designed to insulate your plumbing pipes and produce heat. As the cable heats up, the pipes themselves are then warmed - safeguarding your plumbing against the freezing outside temperatures.
Where Should You Be Installing Heat Cable?
- Exterior Walls
- Crawl Spaces
