Winter is one of our favorite times of the year! It’s often easy to overlook your home’s needs with so much going on. Here is a simple checklist of items that can save you money through the winter:
- Check for leaks and drafts around the house. Replace weather stripping and re-caulk around doors and windows. Drafty doors and windows will cool off the house and cost you money in heating bills.
- Inspect your attic’s insulation. Heat rises so adding good insulation can keep the heat from escaping.
- Check your heating system. Sometimes something as easy as replacing your filter or having simple maintenance done can save on heating costs.
- Consider changing from standard light bulbs to energy saving bulbs. Winter uses a lot of your electricity so even saving a little here and there will help.
Whether you live in a warm or cold climate, take this opportunity to inspect your home systems. You’ll be money ahead in the long run!
