As the days get shorter and the temperatures begin to drop, fall is a great time to check off items on the to-do list and make sure your home security is all set for the colder months ahead. The following are some tips for you to get started!HAVE YOUR HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEMS INSPECTED
You have spent all spring and summer running your air conditioning, but before you start running your heat, it is a great idea to get both systems checked out to make sure there are no clogged filters, cracked pipes, or electrical issues. This is something that gets overlooked often, and could cause fires.CHECK YOUR SMOKE DETECTORS
Checking your smoke and carbon dioxide detectors is always incredibly important. Make sure that they are working correctly, replacing the batteries if needed. If you want an extra level of security, you can upgrade to a monitored system that will continuously check both levels.CLEAN UP YOUR YARD
Raking leaves, cleaning gutters, and performing proper maintenance to your yard will keep your home safer from clogged drains, floods, and other issues.IMPROVE YOUR LIGHTING
Since the days get shorter in the fall, this leaves a larger window for burglars to possibly access your home. This can be avoided by making sure all of your outside lights are working. For an extra level of security, you can opt for motion-activated lighting.
