That said, freezing is not limited to only pipes on the outside. There are cases where even pipes inside the home tend to freeze and burst. One way to get around this is by keeping the heat in your home turned on. This is important especially when you are away from your home for a week or more. But if you want a more energy-efficient way of preventing the pipes from freezing, consider investing in extra insulation. Insulation to prevent freezing is available in various forms. You can choose to install insulating sleeves for individual pipes or reinforce the walls that cover them. The measures outlined in the infographic below will help you prevent your pipes from freezing.
