Winter – Avoid Freezing Pipes with Temperature Sensors

, ,

An average of $10,000 in residential insurance claims accounts for 96 percent of water damage from frozen or broken pipes. These damages can be prevented if homeowners know how to take the right precautions. Frozen pipes can cause needless damage to your customer’s home in the cold winter months. When water freezes in the pipes, pressure buildup occurs. Ice blockage and pressure buildup can cause the weakest point of the pipe to burst. Pipes in exterior walls, crawl spaces, and attics are extremely susceptible to freezing temperatures in the winter.

Pipe insulation costs about 50 cents per linear foot. Your customers can seal cracks in exterior walls and wrap insulation sleeves around pipes. They can keep a slow trickle of water flowing in faucets connected to pipes in unheated spaces. They also can focus on a more high-tech solution like wireless temperature sensors. When these sensors are used with intelligent home alarm systems to precisely assess pipe temperatures, they can prevent pipes from freezing.

Benefit of Temperature Sensors

With temperature sensors, your customers can maintain optimal temperatures to prevent pipes from freezing and breaking. You can help your customers make informed decisions about using the right temperature sensors. They need a cutting-edge remote monitoring system with sensors that maintain optimal temperatures throughout the plumbing system. The best system uses sensors that send real-time notifications through SMS, text, or email when the temperature of the pipes drops below the freezing point. Your customers will benefit from high-tech sensors that sense both potential and minimal water leaks before any expensive water damage happens in the home.

Eliminate Truck Rolls with Connect+

,
The Technology Services Industry Association reports that the average truck roll costs approximately $1,000. As a security dealer, you’ll lose money on usage costs like fuel, maintenance and general owner expenses.
