What temperature do I set the thermostat at so my pipes won’t freeze?

    You do need to set the thermostat well above freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit) to prevent pipes from freezing. Some recommend setting it at 44 degrees, others at 55 degrees. The freeze danger depends on how exposed the pipes are. One old trick is to let a bit of hot water run constantly to keep the pipes open, but this obviously isn’t the greenest option. Covering or insulating the pipes (which shouldn’t be too costly if you can get to them) can help them withstand the winter better, too.
