What's a good way to prevent frozen pipes in the garage?
Just foam covering for pipes is not enough, you need heat tape or you need a room temperature above freezing.
Particularly when the furnace draws combustion air from the interior at large and there is a louver to let in outside air (not having a modern exterior combustion air intake and exhaust piping system) you need to make sure that water pipes running through the basement and also humidifiers don't freeze.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
