Have you ever taken scissors and cut a pile of money in half? Of course not! Why would you do such a thing? Money is precious to families on a budget. Of course, perhaps a child has gotten hold of a dollar and ripped it on occasion, but that’s about as far as you’d go to actually cutting money and tossing it away. But did you know that there are ways you are doing basically that very thing within your home? Don’t you want that to stop? Put those virtual scissors away and stop wasting your money! Here are a few ways you can stop the bleed on money in your budget in Pinellas County.
Insulate your Attic
If your home was built before 2000, your attic might not have enough insulation in it. Building codes change over the years and if your home is older, it might not be up to the current codes. By increasing your insulation to the proper codes by today’s standards, you can improve the comfort of your home, lower your energy bills, and stop cutting up your money!
Upgrade your Doors
Have you ever gotten a new entry door? If not, you’re not the only one, but you are probably wasting quite a bit of money because of that. If your entry door is old or doesn’t fit snugly in its frame, a lot of your hard-earned cash is going outside to cool the humid air in Pinellas County. If you feel a draft around the door, you’re wasting money.
Any family will use more lights than they need, especially if kids are in the habit of leaving lights on when they leave a room. If you train your family to turn lights off when they leave rooms and if you change your incandescent bulbs to LED bulbs, you can save quite a bit of money. LED lights will save you 80% on your lighting power use. Plus, LED lights can last up to 25 years so you won’t have to replace them any time soon.
Install Hurricane Windows
Your windows are another place in your home that can leak air and cause you a lot of money loss. If your windows are old and inefficient, they are costing you more money than you can imagine. When you live in Pinellas County, you want to protect your home against hurricanes and high winds. By installing hurricane windows, you can save money on utility bills, but you also will save money when you sell your home because you can put a higher price on the home. You can also save money in the event of a storm when your home is better protected. There’s no losing when it comes to hurricane windows, only saving when it comes to money!
