Tips to Get Your Home Ready for a Winter Vacation

Serving Families Throughout Dallas

We are all for relaxing getaways, as long as we avoid any home disasters while we are away. Are you and your family planning a trip this winter? We have a few tips you should keep in mind before you leave.

1. Make your home appear occupied.

Forward your mail and ask a friend or neighbor to collect the flyers at your front stoop. Another tip — put your exterior and interior lights on timers so they come on on varying times to make it more believable that someone is home.

2. Protect the inside in case someone does break in.

Make sure every door and window is secured and locked (even dead bolted if you have the option). Store any valuables in a lock box or a safe. And we know how enticing it may be to post all about your vacation online to your friends and family — but please refrain from sharing your exact location — picture and videos are perfectly fine to share.

3. Check your major appliances before you leave.

If you haven’t gotten your heating and air system inspected and serviced, now is the time to do so! If you need dependable and high-quality heater repair in Dallas, TX, please call Rescue Air and Plumbing at (972) 201-3253.

Also, make sure you unplug all your appliances. Even if you aren’t using them, when they are plugged in they still use a great amount of energy, which can really spike up your utility bills.

Our technicians provide AC & furnace repair in Dallas, TX and are available around the clock because we at Rescue Air and Plumbing understand that emergencies do not just occur during business hours. As a family-owned business, we strive to provide excellent service to all our Dallas area clients. If your heating and cooling unit is on the fritz & needs repair, let our Dallas service experts help you get back to living in comfort.
