No matter what time of year it is you need to make sure you have good home insurance cover. Summer is known as the season when most burglaries take place but with summer out of the way, it doesn't mean we can be complacent during winter.
During summer, people are away on holiday or having days out, plus a lot more time is spent in the garden so your house will be empty more often. That's why more burglaries take place. During winter people tend to stay home more but there are the long, dark evenings which give good cover to any would-be burglars.
To keep your home safe no matter what the season investing in an alarm is always a good idea and it will reduce your premium too. Your neighbours may not come running, but it'll certainly deter any burglar in the act.
Fitting door and window locks is also a good deterrent as well as helping to keep your insurance premium down. Even keeping your bushes trimmed, keeps your house visible to the street and helps to deter opportunist burglars. Neighbourhood watch may sound old fashioned but it does help to have a neighbour keeping an eye on your home when you aren't around.
