What does it mean?

Your Phyn Smart Water Sensor checks every hour for changes in temperature. You received the alert because the sensor detected temperature below the XX degree threshold you set.

If your room gets too cold it can cause your pipes to freeze and burst.

What can I do?

That depends on close the temperature is to freezing. The closer the temperate is to freezing, the more urgency there should be to take action to remediate. Some of the steps outlined below can take time to achieve the resulting rise in temperature.

  • Open Faucets. Open up all your faucets. If the water runs out at a trickle, that is a sign that there is blockage from ice crystals.
  • Turn up the Heat. Turn up your thermostats to warm up your home and pipes.
  • Identify Frozen Pipes. Typically, frozen pipes happen in the in a basement, a crawl space or are exposed and running along an exterior wall of a house.
  • Warm up your Pipes. Use a hairdryer to defrost the frozen pipes or wrap towels around them that have been soaked in hot water. DO NOT use a blowtorch or other open flame.
  • Have a Basement? Turn on a space heater to warm up the room. Don’t leave space heaters unattended.

Or, if you prefer, you can change your temperature alert settings.
