I've been in my house five years, only the past two have the kitchen pipes froze up on me. The area that keeps freezing is in a crawl space, and of course, the pipes are near an exterior wall. So, this summer I had the crawl space filled with insulation. Alas, much to my dismay, they froze up again the other day.
I'm thinking the next step I want to take it to get some pipe insulation on the pipes. However, seeing as they are in a crawl space that is now full of insulation, is there anyway to get the pipe insulation without have to tear up flooring or walls to get to them?
Also, I've noticed that since the hot water pipe has unfroze this time around, the hot water temperature is hotter than normal from the kitchen faucet only. Anyone ever hear of something like that?
