Don’t Get Burned! 
An Anti-Scald Device Will Protect Your Family

Hot-water-handleIn homes where there is a high demand for hot water, homeowners often turn up the temperature on their hot water heaters to meet this need, sometimes well beyond the 120 degree Fahrenheit factory setting considered safe. Temperatures higher than this can cause severe scalding. At highest risk are children and elderly or disabled persons.

In such situations, installing an anti-scald device is an affordable way to protect against this risk. Call us today at 1-866-TIGER70 to learn more about protecting your family.

Scalding Facts

  • Hot water scalds account for 20% of all burns
  • More than 2,000 American children are treated for scalds each year
  • Scalding accidents occur most frequently in the bathrooms and kitchens where they are most preventable
  • Scalding leads to additional injuries such as heart attacks, shock, falls, and serious broken bones, particularly among the elderly
  • Scalding and other burns require the most expensive treatments: long hospital stays, costly skin grafts, and plastic surgery
  • Most U.S. states now mandate some form of anti-scald measures in building codes

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
