At Slaughter Insurance Agency in Quinlan, TX we have a team of experienced agents who are here to help make sure you get the right insurance at an affordable price. As independent agents, we can offer more choices and work for our customers, not one carrier.
Check your batteries
Make sure the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are changed at least twice a year for maximum safety.
Use your locks
Make sure you not only have locks on your windows and doors but that you use them religiously. They can’t keep you safe if you don’t use them. Window locks especially can be overlooked.
Get your furnace and chimney cleaned yearly
Fire is one of the biggest safety threats to your home. Making sure your furnace and chimney aren’t fire hazards gives you peace of mind and in the case of your furnace, can save you money since your unit will run more efficiently if it is clean.
Install a home security system
These days it is inexpensive to have the security you need in your home. Some systems are DIY and unless you opt for a monitored system there is no expense other than buying the alarms and cameras.
Store poison in a safe place
Poison should always be stored where it can’t be reached by children or pets. Outside the home is best.
Making your home safer only takes a few key steps. When you are ready to discuss your home insurance or would like us to review it, at Slaughter Insurance Agency in Quinlan, TX we are ready to help.
