Winter Series: Peak Time

12/10/20 | 7 min read

Did you know that the month of December is the peak time for both burglaries AND electrical fires? If you consider the massive increase in traveling times, the significant amount of high theft items (such as holiday gifts), and how much more electricity is consumed (such as christmas trees and holiday lights), it makes sense why burglaries are at a spike during this season. It’s important to protect both the inside and outside of your home during the winter months, so that’s why we’re creating a series over the next few weeks giving our best tips on the following areas:

1. How To Use Technology To Your Advantage

In a highly connected world, it’s easy to forget about truly how beneficial our technology can be: how it can sometimes have negative effects, but even more so how you can use it to your advantage when it comes to protect your home, your belongings, and your property during the winter season.

2. Holiday Fire Safety

Like mentioned previously, not only is the winter season peak time for burglaries, but it also peak time for electrical fires. We want to inform and remind you the most beneficial ways to protect your home from fires.

3. How To Prevent Criminal Temptation

As much as people travel during the winter season, it’s important to remember what in your home or in your yard could entice criminals into burglary while you’re away. And believe it or not, there’s best practices when it comes to hiding your valuables, too. This is especially important this time of year.

4. How To Leverage The Use of Lights

Like technology, lights can also be used to your advantage. They light up your home, your property, and they will also light up criminals if you’re smart in installing them.

Focusing on improving these four areas will greatly improve the safety of your home, your belongings, and your property during the holiday season.
