Avoid Those Frozen Pipes!!

Frozen pipes

 

Broken pipes occur regularly during the Winter. When homeowners go away for a week or long weekend, if the goes out, pipes freeze, the water runs for hours flooding the home. That is one heck of a mess to come home to!

Here are our top recommendations to prevent this terrible situation:

1. Consider adding an inexpensive, water -on-the-floor detector to your existing alarm system. You’ll be notified by your central station if there is water detected.

2. Install a stand alone water alarm, like the Reliance Controls Model #THP201. These are available locally or online and cost around $100. It will call you if there is a leak or a low temperature.

3. Have a neighbor check your house regularly when you are away.

Any of these actions will reduce any worry and unnecessary expenses while you are away.
