Christmas is a time to decorate the home, both inside and outside, and there’s a wide variety of decorations to chose from.  While most of use will throw a string or two of lights up along the porch or the roof of our home, with a couple wreaths as well, there are some families that like to go all out for the Christmas season.

What we need to make sure of is that as homeowners, we take every precaution necessary to make sure any and all decorations are placed and plugged in properly.  That means making sure the tree on the lawn with a dozen twinkle lights on it doesn’t spontaneously combust.  Christmas decorations, especially those requiring electricity, can become very dangerous if the proper steps are not taken to make sure there’s enough outlets and routers to handle the increase in wattage.  You certainly don’t want to file a CT homeowners insurance claim this holiday season because the blowup santa on the porch caused a fire.

So basically, make sure that you have enough safety features to insure a fire or anything else doesn’t occur in your home.  Like we said earlier, you don’t want to file a CT homeowners insurance claim because of faulty wiring due to your Christmas tree that can be seen from the next town over.
