How to Keep Your Home Protected This Summer
Have Your AC Unit Inspected
While Bakersfield is fairly warm throughout the year, the summer months are when many homeowners turn on their air conditioning units and stay indoors to keep cool. Although you’ve probably already turned yours on, you should still call a professional to have the unit tuned-up and inspected. Components do break from season to season, and you don’t want to risk a fire from something that could have been easily fixed.
Invest in a Security Camera Installation
As we mentioned in a previous post, investing in a security camera system for your home is one of the easiest ways to purchase 24/7 protection for your home. In addition to acting as a deterrent to criminals, they can provide law enforcement officials with valuable evidence in the event of a break in. Moreover, if you’re leaving for vacation, then you’ll have even more peace of mind knowing that you can check in on your home at any time.
Don’t Advertise Your Vacation
If you’re taking time off of work to go on a vacation, then we’re willing to bet that you’re excited enough to post about it on social media platforms. Security experts are in agreement that you should wait until after a vacation to share photos and information about your plans, as many criminals use social media to learn more about their targets. If you can’t wait until after your trip to share, then double-check your privacy settings to limit your audience.
Contact a Neighbor
If you’re leaving town for a vacation, it’s a good idea to contact a trusted neighbor to ask them to keep an eye on your home. You don’t want packages and mail left sitting on the porch, and you certainly don’t want to come home to any plumbing problems or the aftermath of a robbery. Even if you’re only leaving town for a few days, knowing that a neighbor is keeping an eye on your property can bring you the peace of mind you need to fully enjoy your vacation.
