    24/7 Temperature and Water Alert System  

    The Church Mutual 24/7 Temperature and Water Alert System is now available to all churches within our Conference.  This system is offered free of charge. It will alert a church 24/7 if their facility’s temperatures reach levels that could cause pipes to freeze.  Installation is easy and requires no special tools. Contact Church Mutual today at 1-800-554-2642 or click here for more information.

    Participation in this program will help mitigate water damage to your building and help keep insurance losses down. Help for installation is available from your Church Mutual representative.

    Upper NY Conference Success Stories:

    • Wesley UMC, Rochester, NY (Level 4 Alert) - Hot water heater leaking which was then replaced.  According to the church, this would have ruptured and been far worse without the alarm notification.
    • Skaneateles UMC, Skaneateles, NY (Level 4 Alert) – Foundation leaking and the sump pump couldn’t keep up. More sump pumps were brought in to handle and prevent significant damage.
