In light of Spring break for universities and colleges coming up next week and March Break for elementary and secondary schools just around the corner, Tembo would like to discuss your home while you’re on vacation. For many people travelling can be quite stressful: getting everything for work or school done before you leave, to making travel arrangements, and ensuring you make your flight, all while worrying about getting the best out of your destination that you have poured thousands of dollars into.
It is important to put a hold on any deliveries including mail and newspapers which can accumulate and draw attention to that you may be away. Be sure to pay all of your bills prior to your departure to avoid service charges and late fees. It is also a good idea to inform family and neighbours that you will be away so they can keep an eye on your home. Prior to leaving your home you should discard of all perishable food items and take out the garbage. It is also vital to ensure all doors and windows are closed and locked. It is good idea to use a timer for your outdoor lights to simulate the image that the home is occupied. It is also recommended to set your thermostat anywhere from two to four degrees off of what you normally would to conserve energy.
