In my garage there is an unheated bathroom. The sink was frozen so we had to install new fixtures to get it working. Now the bathroom is in the garage, this is a split level. In the garage area the heating pipes for the baseboard heat are located under the ceiling tile. The bedrooms are above the garage. Is it possible those pipes froze as well? Can u smell rotten pipes? How can I tell if those pipes are okay. They did leak where they connect. There is like a shut off valves to each room and they were leaking. I think the pipes have rusted. One more thing. In the winter it seems there is moisture on the floors in the hall and one bedroom. Could this be coming from those pipes. I would hate to rip down the garage ceiling to replace those pipes but am concerned with moisture. The garage is cold in the winter so I was thinking of putting in a wood stove to keep it warm in there. ALso airconditioning for the summer to try and even out the temperature in there. Any ideas.
