Radiators taken off for plastering and now worried about pipes freezing

Postby vichello » Fri Feb 02, 2018 7:50 pm


I've recently had a rewire on my house a couple of weeks ago and it's about to be re-plastered. Before that took place I removed all the radiators so the plasterer would have full access and capped them all off. The forecast next week suggests the temperature is going to drop below freezing (about -2) and I'm worried about the pipes freezing. My partner suggested that we put an electric heater on on a timer in the kitchen to come on at night to help it stop from dropping in temperature inside, however I'm not sure that's the best option. I was wondering whether anyone has any suggestions? I've been looking for advice online but haven't been able to find any. Thanks for your help.
