Are you going somewhere for the Holidays? Whether you’re going away for just a few days or an extended period of time, you don’t want to get caught with Frozen pipes or other problems at home. Here’s a simple checklist to run through before you hop in the car or fly across the country.

If you’re planning on being gone for an extended period (3-4 weeks or more)…

Plan for Emergencies

  • Give emergency contact information to local police, relatives, friends, or a house sitter while you’re away.
  • Check to make sure smoke and other detectors are functioning.
  • Have friends or family check for ice dams. Have a plan set in place to avoid and/or repair damage.
  • Check that all storm windows and shutters are secure and can’t possibly blow open during a snow or wind storm.

You’re all set! Have a lovely holiday break and don’t forget to leave your home prepared for when you get back!
