Can you believe it? We couldn’t even make it until December to experience our first snowfall in the Greater Philadelphia region. With more and more leaves falling off the trees and frost on our cars being the first thing that greets us in the morning, it’s certainly safe to say that winter is coming across Philadelphia. Here at Freedom Insurance Group, Inc., we do more than just provide great rates on car and homeowners insurance in Philadelphia, PA.

Daylight saving time is upon us. Now is the time to assess what you need to do to winterize your home. Do you need to clean your gutters, caulk your windows and door frames? A quick trip to the home store to pick up new batteries for those fire/carbon monoxide detectors some insulation and caulk will put your mind at ease by reducing the risks in your home and reduce your worries. Schedule an appointment to clean the fireplace and chimney so you can safely burn and have those cozy winter nights without a worry. Checking dyer vents and heating vents for debris will also make your home more energy efficient.
