During the cold season, most vacation homes on the North Fork either sit empty or have only occasional residents. That’s why nearly 2,000 customers leave their keys with the Burt’s Reliable team—so that we can look after their home during the off-season. This saves them the hassle of making long trips out to their second home.
Here’s what we do to protect your vacation home from cold-weather damage while you’re away:
For further protection, we recommend a Wi-Fi thermostat like the Ecobee, which allows you to control your temperature settings from your smartphone — wherever you are. The Ecobee takes “smart” to a whole new level. Unlike a typical thermostat, which monitors the temperature in a single location (usually a hallway), this system uses multiple sensors throughout your home to monitor the temperature in every room.
