Plumbers are bracing for an influx of work because of the cold.

Experts at Sizemore Plumbing are urging everyone to cover outside pipes, leave faucets dripping, and open up cabinets so pipes under sinks and vanities can stay warm. They say outdoor pipe insulation is inexpensive to buy and easy to install.

"In the interior of the house, open up every cabinet, that's there, that way the heat from the house, will keep all your lines pretty much warm," said Jazaman Densen of Sizemore Plumbing. "Make sure you have everything covered the way its supposed to be, taped down properly."

Temperatures may fall low enough to cause some pipes to freeze and burst. That could cause thousands of dollars in damage to your home.
