Did You Know? Temperature Monitoring Systems For Your Mountain Home

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Wednesday, December 15th, 2010 at 10:05am.

A furnace failure, bursting pipes or a thermostat accidentally turned to “off” can turn into a home repair nightmare, creating water damage to everything from drywall to flooring to furniture. With many of our clients acting as second homeowners that may need to leave their residence unattended at times throughout the cold winter months, a temperature monitoring system can help to relieve the anxiety of being away from home.

Here’s how Temperature Monitoring Systems typically work: a keypad base unit plugs into a phone line as well as an electrical outlet. Internal temperature and power outage sensors continually monitor the home for: low temperatures and extended power outages. The unit we found will call up to three user-programmed numbers if a problem should occur, notifying the recipient of the problem so the homeowner is aware and can make arrangements to fix the problem.

There are many Temperature Monitoring Systems out there and even available online at stores like Home Depot and Amazon for a fairly low investment. Check with your home insurance provider to determine if temperature monitors are a requirement for your mountain property to be insurable, or if they might offer a reduced rate should you choose to install one.

Check out the Temperature Monitoring System available on Amazon. Others are available at Home Depot and some hardware stores.
