8 Ways to Prepare Your House for Winter Vacation

  1. Lock all doors and windows.
  2. Disconnect your garage door opener.
  3. Stop all deliveries or have a neighbor collect them for you.
  4. Use timers to turn lights on and off.
  5. Be cautious about announcing your plans on social media or voice mail.
  6. Turn off the water or keep the thermostat above 55 degrees to prevent freezing pipes.
  7. Arrange to have snow shoveled and sidewalks salted.
  8. Notify the police of your absence. They will usually do occasional drive-bys to check on your home.
