Here's a little tidbit of information for the lucky people
who can get away during the cold days
There are many different ways and forms of alarms
to protect your home in winter. They
range from very
inexpensive units to sophisticated alarms monitored
by a security company.
One very inexpensive
devise is called a freeze alarm.
If you have a neighbor that is a friend and can see
your home from his home, this
can give you some
protection. It is a simple unit that you plug into an
outlet. I know of one person
who hangs a string
of Christmas lights in the window and plugs them
into the alarm. When the temperature
below the setting, the Christmas lights go on,
alerting the neighbor to take action. Some of
hardware and big box stores carry these
Some devices attach to a telephone and will call
or more numbers when the temperature in
the home drops. Most security systems have an
option for a temperature
alarm. They can call
the owner or designated party, who notifies us
so we can respond to the no heat call.
Another option is to winterize your home if you
are leaving for an extended time. A plumber
this task. This process has its
advantages and disadvantages which I am not
going to address in this article.
