This is the time of the year when you should be concerned about damage from frozen pipes. Water damage from frozen pipes is extremely common in the winter months, especially when temperatures get below about 20° F.  This type of damage can cost you or the insurance companies thousands, and it is typically pretty easy to prevent.  It is definitely worth taking the time to prepare your home and pipes to avoid the possibility (or at least lessen the risk) of a pipe bursting.  PVC, metal, or any type of pipe can freeze and burst.  Some simple things you can do lessen the chances are:  let your water faucets slowly drip, open cabinets to help air flow, remove hoses and cover outdoor faucets, insulate pipes exposed to the cold, and maintain heat in your home.  If you are going to be away from home you may want to take extra precautions such as draining your water system.  Don’t think it won’t happen to you.  We see this type of claim on a Homeowner’s policy every year.  Check out this article from weather.com for more information.
