If you live in a house on a concrete slab do you need to to drip faucets? I would think no and believe I have been told that as well.

Slab will not get as cold as a crawl space. So chances are it will not freeze.

But if it does and breaks the line you are tearing up your slab instead of fixing it in your crawl space.

So less chance to freeze. But way more pain in the ass and expense to fix.

So just leave them dripping. The 50 cents extra on you water bill will be way cheaper then any potential repairs.

Well, yeah...the weather phenomena that we are experiencing has an inverse affect on a place like Anchorage when compared to the lower 48, so this is to be expected.
