Empty homes over Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and this means temperatures are dropping. If you own a property that is sat empty you need to ensure you are protected from pipes freezing. The best way to do this is to have the heating system drained down ensuring there is no water left in the system. If you have a modern boiler they generally have a frost setting keeping the system ticking over. If you fail to protect your system it could prove an expensive mistake.

During the festive period buglary levels rise as theives target homes expecting expensive presents to be sat waiting. If your property is empty this can be more appealing with the cost of scrap metal rising. Try to keep the property looking lived in to peturb any wannabe theives.

You should check on the property as often as you can just to ensure its safety and make sure the neighbours have your contact details.
