One day when I was going through a man's home replacing sections of pipe that burst because they froze and broke, the man asked me (with one of the broken pipes in his hand):

How cold does it have to get for pipes to freeze?

I answered 31 degrees Fahrenheit. He looked at me like I was crazy, but that is all it takes for a pipe to freeze.

Fixing frozen pipes is a serious matter, and you should consult a professional for a frozen drain pipe or frozen water pipe.

We had a woman with a squeaky circulator, she was so afraid of the noise she turned the boiler off and called a glorified handyman, who told her it was ok to leave the heat off till she could afford to call a plumber.
