Some pipes are more prone to freezing than others because of their location in the home. Pipes most at risk for freezing include:
- Exposed pipes in unheated areas of the home
- Pipes located in exterior walls
- Any plumbing on the exterior of the home
Perhaps you just purchased a home that has undergone a bathroom renovation and the last owner installed a brand new rain shower head by running new plumbing through the ceiling (which actually is the attic of your home). What if the attic is not properly insulated? Is there a risk that your new shower plumbing might freeze?
