YOU may not be the only thing that's freezing in these frigid temperatures.
Don't forget about your home.
Frozen pipes are a common problem this time of the year.
Gardell Jochim, Owner of Northern Plains Plumbing Heating & Air says the more air movement throughout your home, the better and keep your thermostat set at the same temperature both day and night.
"Any cabinets or anything that have water under the sinks, leave them open. The more air movement you can get through the house, the better. You know, you don't want a place that's really, that has absolutely no air movement. As far as heating lines go - a lot of heating lines that freeze up that are either by door or entry ways. Make sure your doors are all sealed up good," says Gardell Jochim, Owner, Northern Plains Plumbing Heating & Air.
You may also want to think twice before using a space heater to unthaw pipes.
The Bismarck Fire Department says they see a lot of fires, especially in mobile homes, caused by heating devices.
"It's definitely something that they need to know if they're going to be thawing out their pipes or heating their homes that they take those extra precautions to make sure they turn their heating appliances off before they go to bed. Don't run them when they're sleeping or when they're not home," says Jeremy Francis, Firefighter.
Jochim says the best thing you can do if your pipes freeze is to call a professional to ensure they get them thawed out before they break.
