Hello and welcome to another WIN video blog!

During the holiday season, you may be away from your home for a few days while visiting family and friends. Before you go, take these steps to keep your home safe while you're gone.

Water leaks while you're not home are a big issue. Shut off your main water valve right before you leave to reduce the risk of flooding.

To save energy, you can set your thermostat a few degrees cooler in the winter. Don't turn the heat off completely, or pipes may freeze and burst.

Thanks for watching!
