Protecting your home while you're away.

Protecting your home while you're away.

If you’re moving, or going out of town your home can be left vacant for long periods of time. Here are a couple of tips to keep your home safe while you are absent!

Invest in an alarm system if your home does not already have one. In the long run it will save you money on your insurance policy, but you can breathe easy knowing that you will be protected even when you are not home. Most alarm companies are able to monitor the fire alarms as well as theft. So no matter what happens you will be covered!
Just contact the alarm company before you leave and let them know the dates you will be gone and they will keep an eye out for you!

Use a programmable thermostat, this will ensure that you can maintain a constant temperature balance in your home to prevent freezing pipes (especially if you’re on vacation during a cold Alberta winter!).

Have a friend or family member check in on your home while you are away. They don’t have to stay there for long periods of time, but if they have a spare set of keys they can make sure no problems have arisen, or they can water your plants, and furthermore it creates the illusion that someone is staying in the house.

Put exterior lights on a timer, and make sure they are all working before you leave. Keeping the lights on a time will create more of an illusion of someone being home most of the time and it increases visibility around your home. If you want to go that extra step, you can add a camera to the exterior of your home.

Last but not least, make sure all the locks to your home are in good working order and not deteriorating, close all the blinds in your home so people are not able to see inside easily and if you have patio doors, place a bar on the bottom to keep the door from opening – even if they do manage to get the door unlocked!
