Don’t let your home get caught in the cold

When the temperature begins to drop, it’s time to think about the effect weather can have on our homes.

For those of us that enjoy a winter vacation or those that leave the cold behind for an extended trip south, the cold Minnesota winters could potentially lead to thousands of dollars in damages to your home.

This can ruin walls, appliances and possessions. WH Security offers freeze sensor technology that is designed to detect temperature drops in the home, helping prevent freeze damage from occurring.

How does it work? These environmental sensors are mounted in your home, often under the kitchen sink, and detect if the in-home temperature drops below 42 degrees. If this happens, the sensor alerts our monitoring center. Dispatchers will then inform you of the situation so you can take action to warm up your home before the pipes freeze and burst.

These freeze sensors are inexpensive to purchase and install and are especially helpful for “snowbirds” who travel south for the winter, but still maintain a home in Minnesota. Installing a temperature drop sensor as a part of a monitored alarm system can help you worry less about your vacant home so you can enjoy your time away from the cold more.

Instead of relying on someone to check on your home with you are away, let WH Security monitor it for you. Contact a WH Security representative today for more details at (763) 477-3664, or info@wh-security.com.
