Re: EXTREME freezing temperatures - What to worry about? I don't know what this tape is I see people talking about, but the pipe cable will run fairly cheap.
25 to 75$ deepening on length. Not anywhere near 1000$.
Or just toss in some electric heaters, if he has them. Or run to Costco for a couple of them (heater fans) at 40$ a pop (on special this week). They heat a room very very good and very fast.
