Don’t forget the fish
An automatic fish feeder
will ease any worries you may have about the care of your ornamental fish. Better than a well-meaning friend who may be overly generous with fish food, an automatic fish feeder precisely matches feeding times and quantities to the biorhythm of the fish. Whether you use flake food or larvae, tablets or drugs, anything can be dispensed to your exact schedule. In fact, a one-time filling can supply an aquarium with up to 28 days of food for those lucky enough to take an extended holiday.
Whole House Surge Protection
Pulling the plug on some of your electronics, like your desktop computer and printer, toaster oven, and coffee maker help save money while you're gone since many appliances draw energy even when they're turned off. It will also eliminate that nagging feeling you get when you’re several hours away that something may have been accidentally left ON.
For electrical loads that need to always remain on, such as the refrigerator, pumps, furnace and DVR system, be sure they stay protected from power surges with a whole house surge protective device.
A whole house surge protector provides protection for expensive equipment such as HVAC equipment, appliances, flat screen TVs and everything else in your home that is plugged into an electrical outlet.
Finally, check your police department’s website
for more burglary prevention tips. Many police departments cover a spectrum of valuable advice, from using deadbolts, dowels, or locking pins in sliding glass doors and windows, to keeping mum about your vacation plans on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or other social networking sites. Your city’s police may even offer to conduct vacation checks of your property.
