Would your home deter a thief?

Carney Insurance Services

Research shows that if it takes more than four or five minutes to break into a home, the burglar will go elsewhere.

Most insurance companies provide 2 percent to 15 percent discounts for devices that make a home safer—dead-bolt locks, window grates, bars and smoke/fire/burglar alarms.However, when improving the security of your home, don’t exchange security for personal safety.

Don’t make your home such a fortress that you are unable to escape in case of a fire or other emergency.

Check your home for weaknesses and correct them

If you have updated your home with new security measures, please let us know so that we can make sure you are getting all of the insurance discounts that you can!
