Home Protection

Some of the most common types of losses to your home can be prevented or greatly reduced with the installation of devices that monitor for potential hazards like water and fire.

Water Intrusion

Water damage is one of the most common types of reported claims. Preventative measures include:

  • Water leak damage
  • Automatic shut-off valve
  • Water flow alarms
  • Wire braided hoses
  • Sump pump battery backup
  • Temperature sensors

Fire

A fire doubles in size every minute. This rapid escalation means that early detection and prompt fire department response are critical to saving lives and property.

Home Safety

Claims experience shows that theft losses are preventable when you install and activate a central station burglar alarm in your home.
