When You’re Away

Keep your home safe, while you’re away from home…

Before you leave your home for an extended period of time, you should arrange for someone that you trust to check-in on your home to:

  • Perform periodic checks to make sure that your power is on. This simple step 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.
