As outdoor temperatures drop below freezing, your HVAC system works harder to maintain an adequate indoor temperature. If something goes wrong—the power goes out, a breaker is tripped or a thermostat is inadvertently turned off—the temperature inside your facility can drop low enough that pipes freeze and burst.
The resulting water damage to your building and the equipment inside can disrupt your operations and be expensive to fix. In fact, the average cost of a freeze loss is $28,000.
Building monitoring services with a freeze prevention package can help prevent these cold weather problems—even when your building is unoccupied.
How it works
Specially designed, battery-powered sensors are placed in strategic locations to monitor your facility’s indoor temperature 24/7. The sensors communicate directly with a staffed monitoring and support center. If the temperature falls, an alert will be sent directly to your designated contact person via email, text or phone call. This allows you the opportunity to take action to fix the issue, which can minimize damage and save you time, money, and inconvenience.
In some parts of the country, temperatures have already hit single-digit lows. Contact your account executive to take proactive measures to protect your business from damage and costly repairs caused by frozen pipes.
