Three Ways to Keep Your Pipes from Freezing

1. Arrange your bathroom so that there are no fixtures, and therefore no plumbing, on exterior walls.

2. Bring pipes up through the floor instead of the wall if it's a first-floor bathroom.

3. Run pipes in the wall on the interior side of the insulation. If codes allow, use flexible PEX tubing, which doesn't crack at low temps.
