some pipes frozen in house
We have older home with no basement but crawl space where pipes are. Insulation was put around them in summer. However, we have had some days of frigid weather and winds and going down to -31 and more overnight tonight. Water trickled out this morning and then was fine all day. Later in evening cold water in kitchen and bathroom sink stopped completely, shower works both. Toilet when flushed does not refill with water downstairs.
Upstairs bathtub and sink cold water works but no hot water. Complete opposite of downstairs? So now to find the problem..and it is late so it will have to wait till morning. Hoping no pipes burst.
Should the water be turned off completely in house to prevdent any problems if pipes burst tonight? Is there a chance they won't burst? As I said it is very cold out there tonight with a windchill so far -31. This happened to one faucet last year but we had it happen in daylight and we thawed the pipes under the house out and it fixed it...but hoping with so many faucets effected that it is only one area frozen? or not?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated..thanks in advance.
