If you had to make a list of all the priorities that homeowners share, “saving money wherever possible” would undoubtedly be right at the top. Owning a home is expensive, especially during difficult economic times. Luckily, the warm spring weather is upon is yet again, bringing with it the perfect opportunity to take a look around the house and take care of any water, power or general infrastructure issues that could be needlessly costing you some of those hard-earned dollars.
HVAC & Plumbing Preventative Maintenance
It’s never a good idea to put off preventative maintenance around the house, particularly when it comes to your heating and cooling systems. Having an expert come in and take a look around won’t just make sure that cool AC is available when you need it (in the case of required AC repairs). It’ll also help make sure no small issues are dragging your HVAC’s energy efficiency down, sending your monthly utility bills sky high in the process. Even something as simple as a filter change can allow your HVAC system to work a little more efficiently all season long, translating to very real savings on your bills each month.
Check That Plumbing
When the weather starts getting nice outside, you’ll likely start cutting and watering your grass on a regular basis again. This is the perfect opportunity to make sure your home’s plumbing is in order, as even one small leak somewhere on the outside of your house that goes undetected could lead to higher-than-normal water usage in the short-term. Remember that the cold winter weather in an area like Pittsburgh tends to be hard on even the best plumbing systems, which is why you should have someone come out to check on things BEFORE you actually need to start using them again.
Install a Smart Thermostat
The benefits of using spring as an opportunity to install a smart thermostat in your home actually extend far beyond money. Yes, a smart thermostat is dramatically more efficient – thus allowing you to preserve your ideal temperature in your home in the least expensive way possible. But you also get the added convenience of being able to pre-program your HVAC system for any schedule, allowing you to not need to cool your house all day if nobody is around AND enjoy nice, cool air when you get home from work, too.
