4 Signs Your Pipes May Be Frozen

Since the polar vortex here in Northeast Ohio, many homeowners have concerns about the pipes in their homes. Here at Verne & Ellsworth Hann, we’ve had our fair share of calls regarding frozen and burst pipes. Here are 4 signs your homes pipes may be frozen.

  • Frost on pipes: You may be able to see frost on the exterior of exposed pipes, like those under your sinks.
  • No water coming out of faucet: If you turn your faucet on and there is no water or very little water coming out, you most likely have a frozen pipe.
  • Water leaking from ceiling, wall or in the basement: This is a sure sign that the pipes have frozen and burst. Water expands when it freezes which causes pressure on pipes. The pressure can cause leaks or cracks.
  • A bad smell from faucets or drains: If a pipe is blocked, the odor will come up through your faucets or drains.

If you experience any of these signs, call Verne & Ellsworth Hann immediately. Always take precautions, such as turning your heat up, leaving faucets running, and opening cabinet doors to expose pipes to heat.
