How to prevent pipes from freezing?

Asked by livingchoice (538 points ) October 5th, 2011

Hello,

How do I ensure my plumbing pipes doesn’t freeze. My spouse says that we have to keep the heat (oil) running all day but that just seems expensive. We do have a programmable thermostat but won’t be living in the home all the time. Once the cold weather begins to set in how do I ensure my pipes won’t freeze? I live in Wayne County, PA.
