Furnace Water Protection

Protect your home with water sensors

Water damage can happen to anyone and cause serious damage.  Help protect your home against water damage by using water sensors.   Water damage can occur in several areas, often without warning.

Where should water sensors be placed

It’s a good idea to have a sensor in any room with a major appliance or mechanical system that uses water. Water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, air conditioners, and even refrigerators with ice makers all have the potential to cause water damage. Bathroom water lines for sinks and toilets can also leak without warning. For many people, the kitchen, laundry area, and the basement are good areas to protect.

Option One:

Get Instant Alerts with Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector
The Lyric WiFi Water Leak and Freeze Detector by Honeywell keeps an eye on your home, alerting you at the first signs of a water leak or a large change in the temperature or humidity of your home. The Lyric app keeps you connected wherever you are:

  • Check remaining battery life.
  • Leak detection alarm–the detector will sound an alarm, and you will receive an alert on your phone.

Get alerts on your phone and to designated emergency email contacts
You can also get historical information about the temperature and humidity near the sensor.

Option Two:

Wet Switch
The wet switch by Diversitech (which provides automatic shut off protection) helps prevent flooding and water damage by automatically shutting down the furnace, air conditioner, and humidifier if a leak is detected.
Wet Switch Benefits:

    • Automatically powers off equipment when water is detected.
    • Avoids further damage to equipment and gives you time to address the problem.

    In addition to your water sensor, it’s important to schedule regular maintenance for your furnace and A/C. Also, check for corroded or damaged water supply lines around your home. Finding potential problems before you have a leak is one of the best ways to prevent damage.
