Should You Have a Low Temperature Freeze Alert Device?

If you’re like most people in the “North” you at least think about heading “South” in the winter to get away from the cold, snowy weather, right? Many people from New York and Connecticut flock to Florida in the winter months. These “snowbirds” live it up on the beaches of Delray, Boca, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. Meanwhile, their home back up North is left mostly unattended, except for a neighbor or friend who checks in every couple days to run the water in the sinks and such, as well as get the mail and water the plants.

Frozen Pipes Cause Myriad Problems

Now the worst thing that could happen when you’re away from your house for a while in the winter is this: your pipes freeze/burst and you come home to an absolute mess! Maybe the basement flooded. Walls and floors and furniture are ruined. You’ve got to throw out valuables. And mold and mildew want to take over your house! Ugh.

At that moment you’d wish you had bought a low temperature freeze alert device. This device monitors multiple zones in a house to immediately detect low temperatures– the kind that would cause pipes to freeze/burst. Some device models can also detect water leaks, humidity levels and power failures, too. 

While most people worry about a burglar breaking in while they’re not home, it’s also important to think about other problems that could occur, such as burst pipes and flooding. Therefore, having a low temperature freeze alert device is a great idea. Did you know NYCONN Security Systems can go so far as to install a “WaterCop” automatic water shut-off valve system that eliminates unnecessary indoor floods? 

You can’t deal with something if you don’t know about it. A low temperature freeze alert device can send you a notice on your smartphone to let you know there’s something going on at home that needs your attention. For more info, call NYCONN Security Systems at 800-783-5004.
