In January 2014 we had a pipe break on the third floor adjacent to an attic space which housed water pipes to the baseboard heat. After over 400,00 in repairs and eight months of not being able to use the house, we are facing another prolonged cold spell. The pipes in the attic do have insulation around them, but the space is still very cold. The contractor's solution to avoiding another problem is opening a four foot door from the heated bedroom to the attic space.....Claiming that this will keep the pipes from freezing. I wanted to set an electric heater in the attic space and close the door between the bedroom and the attic and try to maintain an above freezing temperature. One can see light at the eves in the attic so the cold air is seeping in from the outside. I am a cynic and second guessing the contractor. This property is on the ocean and subject to very strong winds.
