- Maintain heat in the dwelling; arrange to keep propane tanks filled as needed
- Drain water pipes
- Consider installing monitoring equipment as well as an app your cell phone to alert you to any sudden temperature changes in the dwelling
- Have a designated person available to keep watch over the dwelling and to make occasional interior checks of the property
Not only will this help prevent a major loss, but it will also hopefully save you from the frustration of coming home to a major mess.
