Remember to "Fall Back"...

On Sunday November 7th, 2021, it's time to set your clocks back an hour and to test and replace all your smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries.

Having a working smoke detector and CO detector can make the difference in avoiding a tragedy. Home safety and security has evolved beyond simply smoke and carbon monoxide detectors - smart devices that keep us safe, secure and comfortable at home are only as good as the batteries that power them!

It's going to start getting cold and dark earlier - here are some tips to stay safe and comfy during the seasonal shift in to winter:

  • Set your lights to come on when the sun sets using a timer - especially in your driveway and at your entrance, 
  • Put your thermostats programmable features to good use and save money too by lowering the temperature when no one is home and heating it up again before you come home
  • Change your car over to winter tires when the temperatures drop below 7 Celsius
