What Are Water Security Systems?
Water security systems are designed to protect your home from costly, hazardous water damage. Did you know that property loss due to water damage and freezing is six times more likely than burglary? At T&S, our customers’ protection is our top priority. We can install a customized monitoring system that tracks all water usage throughout your house. At the first sign of a leak, you will be alerted, and the system will automatically shut off your home’s main water supply to minimize and prevent damage.
Why Invest in a Water Security System?
Water damage, which can be caused by snowy conditions, and freezing account for almost 22% of all homeowners’ insurance claims and rank as the second most frequent claim, behind wind and hail damage. Property loss due to water damage and freezing is six times more likely than burglary—and far more costly, averaging up to $15,000 per claim. Furthermore, according to Travelers Insurance data, your home is up to ten times more likely to be damaged by water than by fire. Water damage claim stigma can follow you from insurer to insurer, raising your insurance premiums and making it more difficult to sell your home.
When it comes to household water damage, leaks and other plumbing problems are often to blame. Even a small household leak can hike up your monthly water bill and do a lot of damage in a short amount of time. If not detected and fixed right away, plumbing issues like burst pipes, flooded basements, and leaky water heaters can be extremely expensive. Unwanted moisture makes your home susceptible to costly and potentially hazardous damages such as mold, termites, and rot.
We know that about 20% of homes use a security system to deter theft. Yet only a small fraction of homeowners take simple, inexpensive steps to prevent water damage—one of the most common causes of property loss. Contact us to learn how we can help protect your home from water damage.
