Challenge

This Midland, VA homeowner had the water pipes to their kitchen freeze almost every winter.  Several times they had burst.  A plumber had an ingenious idea to wrap the pipes in insulation the first time.  This did NOT work of course.

Next, the plumber decided to install a shut off valve inside the house so the homeowner could shut off the water to the kitchen when it got below freezing outside.....lol   Great solution right???

 

Solution

The following case study pictures show how Comfenergy solves frozen pipes once and for all.  The bigges thing to learn from this is that water pipes need a source of heat (from the house) to keep from freezin....and need to be protected from the cold (outside the house).
