Have a home with a crawl space, its a second home so we do not live there all the time, how low can I set my heater in winter and not burst the pipes?
The home heater setting will depend on where you live. If you have freezing temperatures, I would not set it below 40 degrees. A heater in the crawlspace itself should be one that has a setting that will automatically turn it on at no lower than 30-40. Usually they will have a turn on temp and a shutoff temp that is set by the manufacturer. Make sure you have all pipes in crawl space insulated and if there are exposed pipes in the crawl space I would definitely put the heater close by or use heated pipe tape and try to insulate them to keep from having any freezing. Be sure to close all foundation vents for the winter to keep the cold air out and then open them again in the spring to allow for cross thru ventilation.
