A common problem we encountered in winter and during cold months was boiler pipe frost. Not only is this a huge inconvenience, but it can have serious and risky consequences if not corrected immediately.
Since pipe freezing is common when temperatures drop, we've decided to give you some advice on what to do if you run into this problem.
Contact a professional
If you have been patient and have tried to defrost the pipes yourself without success, it is a good idea to contact a professional plumbing & repairs company. They can advise you and solve problems for you.

We always recommend calling a professional as they will make sure that everything is done safely and correctly and that your home is in good hands. If you notice a leak or your pipe has actually burst, you should contact a specialist immediately as it could be dangerous and endanger your property.
Turn off the water for a while
Freezing pipes are especially problematic if there is too much water that should be leaking. The only way to prevent this from happening is to turn off the water supply. If you continue to let the water pool and build pressure through iced pipes, this can have dangerous and costly consequences.
For example, your pipe could start to leak, which could be dangerous or even explode under pressure. This is very dangerous and very expensive. We, therefore, recommend that you turn off the water to reduce the risk.
