You install these small probes at the base of your water heater and air handler separately, and each has a wire that runs up to a plastic box that looks a lot like my smoke detectors
I hate having so much anxiety all of the time, but I guess it serves a purpose. If I hadn’t experienced so much anxiety over taking my car in for an oil change, the mechanic probably wouldn’t have spotted the problem in the appropriate amount of time. Having a care-free attitude about everything in life will land yourself in tough situations that you can’t get yourself out of without help from others. One of my best friends from high school sold his car and got rid of his apartment one summer because he suddenly had the urge to live in nature. He didn’t consider how hot the weather would be since it was July at the time. Unfortunately, he only lasted two months before he was looking to rent a room out of a shared house, now that he had depleted his savings and sold any and all of the assets he once owned. I warned him to wait and live in nature once he could handle keeping the rest of his life in balance, but he didn’t listen to me. I’m the opposite, I am neurotic about avoiding risks. That’s why I ordered leak detection alarms for my water heater and HVAC system. They’re similar to a smoke detector in that they will emit a loud screeching noise whenever the alarm is triggered. You install these small probes at the base of your water heater and air handler separately, and each has a wire that runs up to a plastic box that looks a lot like my smoke detectors. These leak detection alarms will let me know if my air conditioner ever back-flows from a condensate leak, or if the base of my water heater starts to corrode and break-apart.
