Going away over summer and looking to improve your home security? Well, if you’re looking to do it, the time is now. Statistically speaking, summer is the busiest time of the year for Australian burglars. As a large majority of people go away or spend less time in their homes, burglars seize the opportunity for hot property. But, there are a number of measures you can take to secure your home.
There are plenty of affordable ways to cool your home, all of which look great, will keep the energy bills down and keep the mosquitoes out. First thing’s first. Stopping the heat before it gets through your windows and into your home is priority number one. Once the heat gets in, it becomes increasingly difficult to cool your home. If you already know the day’s going to be hot, try cooling it down as soon as you wake up and go to work. You’ll thank yourself in the evening.
