Options for thawing your pipe
Before calling a plumber, you can try to thaw the frozen pipes yourself by turning up the furnace and opening doors to the area. This will allow warm air to circulate around the frozen pipe and may thaw it over time. Check the area regularly as a frozen pipe can crack or burst and create a leak once the water begins to flow.
Do not use a propane heater or open flame device (ex: blow torch, candle, butane lighter) to thaw the pipe.If the pipe or meter is leaking, or if there is water present on the floor, do not use space heaters, heat guns, hair dryers, heating pads or any other electrical appliances to thaw frozen pipes. Leaking water could cause an electrical shock
