Heading South for the Winter?

We are again approaching that time of year when many of our
insureds will be headed to warmer climates for the winter. It is
important to remind them to take the necessary measures to
properly winterize their dwelling while they are away. Such things
should include:
• 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
on their cell phone to alert them to any sudden temperature
changes in the dwelling
• Have a designated person available to keep watch over the
dwelling and make occasional interior checks of the
property
Not only will this help prevent a major loss, but will also hopefully
save the policyholder from the frustrations of coming home to a
major mess.
