Is it OK to let a new construction house freeze?
New construction Zone 6A. With the recent very cold weather we have decided to heat the house on a limited basis. We poured the basement and garage about 25 days ago. We have a temporary furnace in the basement, windows and doors but no ceiling. It would be easy to block the stairs and keep the basement above freezing if necessary. The question is, will it hurt the house to let it freeze?
