Don’t be without water this winter

The Freeze Protection system is a lifetime job that requires no excavating, the running costs are negligible and installation is fast. “These combined factors, give the homeowner peace of mind that they won’t be forking out this winter or any other winter, on repair works caused by burst pipes,” said Declan Cummins of Heat Craft.

WITH winter temperatures proving to be unpredictable, now is the time to prepare for a hassle free winter by protecting the mains water supply from your house to the stop valve/water meter. The Freeze Protection system is a lifetime job that requires no excavating, the running costs are negligible and installation is fast. “These combined factors, give the homeowner peace of mind that they won’t be forking out this winter or any other winter, on repair works caused by burst pipes,” said Declan Cummins of Heat Craft.

Declan Cummins, Director of Heat Craft (Renewable Energy Specialists Ltd), pointed out that last winter proved a nightmare for families and businesses across the country that had to cope without water for days. “The inconvenience alone was more of a problem for people than the actual cost of repairing the water damage and the burst pipes. The positive thing this winter is people can protect themselves from history repeating itself and have total peace of mind.”

“The Mains Freeze Protector is the best of its kind,“ according to Declan. “We are seeing a huge demand for this product from homeowners, especially amongst the farming community. People want to save money where they can and protecting your business from the financial loss endured from having no running water, is just one way of protecting your income,” added Declan. Farmers and businesses such as restaurants and hotels depend 100% on running water to run their businesses. These sectors suffered on the double last winter – they endured big revenue losses and carried heavy heating bills from the pro-longed big freeze.

“We are in the business of saving people money on the running and heating of their homes,” explained Declan. “Once I was satisfied with the quality of this product I knew it was a no-brainer, both for Heat Craft and for families and business owners across Ireland. The beauty of this product is its simplicity - it does not require any digging, is very cost effective and is a straightforward installation,” said Declan.

The Mains Freeze Protector TM involves the insertion of a specially designed low voltage cable (48V DC) into the existing mains water pipe to your premises.

The Cable is heated by a thermostatically controlled unit which switches the system on and off during freezing conditions therefore protecting your water mains pipe from freezing.

According to Declan, there is a paradigm shift taking place amongst home and business owners nationwide. “People are starting to look at their homes and businesses as liabilities that can cost them a lot of money. By keeping up to date and being proactive in protecting their homes from severe weather conditions and being certain their home or business is running efficiently, people are cutting costs by up to 30%. It is realistic to think you can achieve these savings without spending a fortune.”
