10 Ways for Homeowners to Save Money


Every homeowner should have a budget that includes a little something tucked away for repairs and maintenance. How can you make sure that “little something” isn’t exceeded by an unexpectedly large utilities bill or an unplanned major repair bill? Here are just a few easy tips to save money in your home:


  • Adjust your thermostat settings -- and consider upgrading to a smart thermostat

  • Unplug your chargers -- they drain energy even when not in use

  • Vacuum your refrigerator coils twice a year

  • Replace worn weather stripping

  • Service your HVAC -- July is one of the worst times to have your air conditioning fail due to poor maintenance!

  • Inspect your roof and keep your gutters free from debris

  • Install ceiling fans in most rooms -- this can keep rooms up to 7 degrees cooler!

  • Clear your vents of dust and obstructions

  • Consider using an indoor clothes rack or outdoor clothesline instead of a dryer

  • Run only full loads in both the dishwasher and the clothes washer
