Going on Holiday

  • Unplug all low voltage transformers which will not be used such as cordless phone, cell phone charges, DVD machines, etc – these are a fire hazard
  • Unplug all other plugs which are not in use – this will prevent the items being damaged due to lightening/power surges
  • Turn off your geyzer
  • Turn off your water at the main if no-one will be home over this period – this will prevent water damage if a pipe bursts
  • Stop deliveries to your home over this period – newspaper, etc
  • Test your alarm and arm it when you leave
  • Inform your neighbours if you are going away
