When You Are Away

Before you leave for an extended period, arrange with someone to check on your home. Periodic checks to make sure that your power is on may help prevent any frozen or refrigerated foods from spoiling. In the winter, lowering the thermostat to heat water and home helps reduce expense and unplugging major appliances is wise to protect your investments and may save on energy consumption.

Many systems such as ventilating, heating and cooling, fans, security, and lighting continue to operate while you are gone. Although you leave home, energy use continues.
