We all know it can get downright cold here in the Delaware Valley but so far, for all intents and purposes, we’ve had a fairly mild winter so far. Of course, that could all change in a hurry. Remember all the shivering we did during the polar vortex?

One of the biggest worries when we get locked in a deep freeze is, of course, losing heat in your home, which often results in the real possibility of water pipes freezing.
