As temperatures drop, Jake Berry MP is urging households across Rossendale and Darwen to get winter wise.
Fixing damage caused by frozen household pipes that have burst has cost North West homeowners an estimated £578 million.
But Rossendale and Darwen’s MP is asking households to take simple and cheap precautions to avoid a hefty bill this Christmas.
“Fixing frozen pipes can cost households around £525 so it’s really important that we do what we can to avoid the stress and cost this Christmas.
“By lagging our pipes and checking where our stop taps are in case the water needs to be turned off if pipes have burst, we can help ensure a stress-free winter.”
