Once again the country is freezing cold and in many places snowy. As temperatures in many places hit the single digits with severe wind chill factors, we once again look at the issues we know will be turning up for many.
Frozen pipes are always an issue, especially if the insured loses power. The standard homeowners policy requires the insured to maintain heat in the dwelling in order for frozen pipes to be covered. What happens when the insured cannot keep the pipe warm because of the power company? The homeowners policy will provide coverage. A loss of power is not the fault of the insured; it is not the insured turning the thermostat too low when going to Florida for the winter or otherwise not winterizing the house in some way.
