I am in MA and it sure is cold here. Some of my pipes are frozen and I am not sure what to do. I have forced hot water central heat. I heat mainly with a wood stove and pellet stove, but I have been running my furnace a bit with this cold snap. I think a few of the pipes in my baseboard heat are frozen because the heat is not working in some of the rooms on the North side. My downstairs toilet won't flush and my dishwasher overflowed. I still have the heat cranked up and I just hope the baseboard pipes won't burst. What should I do to minimize damage? One time one of the baseboard pipes burst and we had a flood. My son was here and he knew what to do to stop the water. I don't know what he did. All I know is when it burst the water just kept on coming! If this happens what do I do? I know turning off the water to the house did not help, there was a lot of water in the system. Please help!
