Pipe Freeze Protection

How to Prevent Pipes from Freezing

When pipes freeze and burst during the winter, it can lead to costly repairs and interrupted water supply. Protect pipes from freezing by installing a reliable pipe heating system, ensuring a long-term solution to protect your home.

Safe and Reliable Systems 

In colder climates, it’s essential to plan ahead to make sure pipes, sprinkler systems, water spigots and other essential features don’t freeze in or around your home. 

nVent RAYCHEM technology is the perfect solution to protect pipes from freezing. Our electric pipe heaters are attached to the exterior of a water pipe, or are installed inside the pipe. The cable produces just enough heat to keep water pipes from freezing in winter.

Our water pipe freeze protection solutions are: 

  • Easy to install:  We offer pre-assembled systems for fast installation, and cut-to-length heating cable solutions,  when on-site flexibility is of importance.  
  • Reduces energy usage: Self-regulating cables adjust their power output based on the temperature, ensuring you’ll never use more energy than is needed. 
  • Simple design, powerful solution: No matter what your unique needs are, nVent RAYCHEM will have the solution.
