Whether you’re headed for a tropical getaway or to a cooler climate, here are three tips to make your return more pleasant.
- Before leaving, set your water heater to pilot and turn off the air conditioner to save energy and money.
- Be sure your gas light is burning and put an indoor light on a timer to give your home a lived-in look.
- Make your vacation last all summer by creating your own backyard paradise with a gas grill, lights, spa or patio heater. Keep your home cool by moving cooking outdoors, and forget the mess of charcoal or refilling propane tanks.
