Unconventional weather events are pretty normal at this point, despite the “unconventional” part. Ice storms, arctic blasts, polar vortexes, and more are starting to cause us to make some life choices when it comes to our houses. As the weather changes, so too must our plumbing strategies.
Luckily, plumbing systems are pretty unique in the fact that they run all-year round despite the weather. A plumbing system isn’t going to run any differently in the winter than it would in the spring, summer, or fall. But you might encounter different problems depending on how the weather turns out.
Before the next arctic blast or polar vortex, we’d like to talk about the elephant in the room–potential frozen pipes in Bloomington. We’ll discuss what they are, how they come about, and why they’re one of the most insidious problems to encounter when you lose power or encounter a sudden temperature drop this winter.
