Ask Adam: How Do I Protect My Basement?

This year has been devastating to millions of people who were forced from their homes due to flooding. When mother nature goes on a rampage there is no recourse except to flee for safety.

Fortunately, most homeowners in our geographic area are not subjected to such extremes. However, every home with a basement should be protected with a sump pump. And on top of that, a leak detection alarm. Every sump pump should be checked on a regular basis for proper operation.

So How Do I Protect My Basement?

If you have a finished basement or store valuables in it, then you should have a professional grade primary pump and also a battery back up. If the primary pump fails then the backup pump takes over. This pump runs off a marine grade battery and some models can run on line voltage or the battery. This type of dual protection will give you the peace of mind knowing that your valuables are protected.

Take your basement protection even another step forward with the Honeywell Lyric™. Be notified when there is a leak in your home or when the temperatures fall to freezing levels and could harm your pipes. Pair it with other Honeywell products to get the most out of them and your money.
