How do you protect your home during the winter?
A lot of home winterization tips focus on you physically cleaning and preparing your home for the cold season. They speak of cleaning your gutters and drains, disconnecting hoses, insulation, the works. We say prepare, but also protect. Did you know that in addition to these tasks, you can get help to monitor and control your winterization process? Did you know these 4 devices could protect your home, and you, from cold weather?
1. Freeze Warning Devices
Frozen pipes burst. When thawed, you have a flooded home. Now it’s on to handling home insurance claims and costly water damage restorations. With a freeze warning device, you can be notified of any potential freezing issue before it becomes a problem. This is especially important if you are not at home. You can be notified remotely and can either adjust your heating devices online or have a trusted neighbor or friend take action before a problem arises.
2. Water Sensors
Water or moisture sensors are essential tools to letting you know if you there are any leaks at your home. Leaks left undetected can lead to mold growth and eventual health problems. In addition to this, is the extensive property damage that could occur. So, when the cold wears off, make sure that none of your pipes have ruptured and silently doing damage by installing a water sensor.
3. Cold Temperature Sensors
Can you imagine being asleep and not realizing that the furnace has gone out until your house is too cold? With a cold temperature sensor, you can be notified if the temperature in your home is dropping too low. A temperature detector ensures safety and comfort for you and your family. It also gives you control of your thermostat whether you are at home or away.
4. Carbon Monoxide Monitor
You may be wondering why a CO monitor is being discussed on a post about cold weather. But during cold weather is one of the most important times for it. Home is where the heart is. And protecting your home also means protecting the lives of you and your family. Too often we hear of families dying in their sleep because they are bundled up inside from the cold, a heating device is on, and it generates a deadly build-up of carbon monoxide.
You should invest in a carbon monoxide monitor that sounds an alarm as soon as the CO levels are approaching dangerous levels. Carbon monoxide is a silent killer. But a simple device can save your life during cold weather.
