As the festive season draws closer and the weather gets colder, we are all pulling on jumpers and heavy coats, doing everything we can to wrap up against the elements. But let’s not forget that our biggest asset, our home, also needs to be taken care of and made ready for winter.
Here are our top tips, starting with the most vital check of all (the roof) to ensure that your home is protected this winter.
Away For Christmas?
Remember if your home is going to be empty for a reasonable period over the winter/Christmas period, consider leaving the heating on to prevent your pipes from freezing and risking a burst. Similarly, if you are a Landlord with an unoccupied property your policy may also have specific terms which mean you need to maintain the property at a certain temperature or you may not be covered for escape of water claims.
Ingard can help you ensure your home and belongings are protected from unfortunate events. Give our team of specialist Protection Advisors a call on 01702 533 400 to find out how.
