Keep Your Home Protected While on Vacation

Vacationing in the summer

Before you leave, it's always a great idea to:

  • Have newspaper and mail stopped or regularly picked up by a trusted neighbor
  • Ask a trusted neighbor to check on your home
  • Make sure a neighbor knows where the water main shut-off is located in the event of a broken pipe
  • Set timers on interior lights to deter burglars
  • Unplug TV, computer and appliances susceptible to lightning and power surges
  • Advise your alarm company and local police if you will be gone for an extended vacation
  • Take jewelry and valuable papers to a safe deposit box
  • Turn off water valves to your washing machine, icemaker and dishwasher

Vacationing in the winter

  • Set the heat in your home to no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Allow water to drip from a faucet near an outside wall
  • Keep downspouts and gutters clean to prevent ice dams on your roof
  • Disconnect all garden hoses
  • Locate and insulate pipes most susceptible to freezing. Typically those near outer walls, in crawl spaces and in the attic are the most vulnerable.
  • Open cabinet doors to allow heat to reach uninsulated pipes under sinks and where appliances are near exterior walls
  • Shut off and drain the water system in your home (except indoor sprinkler systems) before an extended vacation
