Protecting the pipes from freezing when I'm traveling
I'm going to be traveling a lot for work, sleeping away from home for a few days at a time.
Can anyone please suggest some ways I can protect the house in case the power goes out while I'm away, or if the furnace decides to stop working?
I need a generator, but I'm also interested in a secondary back up heater that can auto start. What are some options there?
I know there is an alarm you can get that calls you if the temperature falls below a certain number.
Maybe just not worry about it so much? Will homeowners insurance cover burst pipes as long as I keep my furnace maintained?
