Each winter, residents try to save money by turning off their heaters when traveling for work, holidays, and fun. Makes sense, right? Actually, it’s catastrophically wrong. The problem is when your heater is off and temperatures dip well below freezing, you could endanger the entire building.

Each winter, we see continuous claims come with resident-caused frozen pipes as they turn down the thermostat heater or shut it off completely.
