Save money on your homeowner insurance by making sure you are receiving all the discounts possible.   Most insurance companies offer discounts when you carry both their auto and homeowner insurance.  You can also receive a reduction in your rate if you have a home security system, deadbolt locks on your doors,  and a fire extinguisher.

 

Be sure and check around at least yearly to make sure you are going with the company with the best premiums for your situation.  A larger deductible in case of a claim will also lower your premium.
