Bensalem, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/01/2019 -- Whether it's leaving for vacation or hosting parties at the house, there's a lot going on during the summer. Insurance claims tend to increase during the summer, and as the top rated home insurance company for PA residents, The Novick Agency is now helping to inform homeowners on how to keep their houses and families protected all season long.

Home burglary rates increase during the summertime, so it's critical to be cautious of leaving a home unattended. Installing motion sensor lights, locks, and a security system will be sure to add a level of defense to a home or property. Additionally, it's a good idea to leave a few lights on to make it appear like someone is home.

Termites, mosquitoes, stink bugs, and spiders are all pests that thrive in the hot summer heat. To prevent them from invading the inside of a home, try insect repellant and citronella candles. Inspect windows for cracks and holes in the screen too, since bugs are prone to sneaking in through windows and doors. For extreme infestations, a professional exterminator may be necessary.

Plumbing receives substantially more use in the summer, so it's important to properly use garbage disposals, sinks, and toilets. The Novick Agency advises homeowners to avoid putting grease and starchy foods down drains, and only flush bathroom tissue down the toilet to avoid a costly plumbing disaster.

Additionally, drastic changes in temperature can affect the plumbing and HVAC system of a home. Dehumidifiers and air conditioners are beneficial in preventing moisture from getting into a home, which can lead to moldy conditions. Not only can mold and mildew be unsightly, but they can also be a significant danger to inhabitants, especially young children and babies.

The Novick Agency encourages all homeowners to review their insurance policies this summer. Along with home insurance, their team also offers affordable auto insurance to PA residents as well. For more information, contact them today by visiting
