Fall is here, and winter is fast approaching. We just wanted to offer you a few tips and tricks to help you save on energy costs and prepare your home for the cold winter.

One thing that you should do is get a routine maintenance check on your heating system. It’s a good idea to have it done before the winter to make sure everything is working properly. Having your heater go out in the dead of winter is not fun.

Another easy thing to do is check for leaks around your windows. Even the smallest little hole can greatly affect the temperature in your house. Check your insulation as well, and make sure it’s adequate.

Switching to energy efficient light bulbs will also help you save on energy costs. With rising utility bills, these bulbs will help keep your electric bill lower.

Colder weather is on the way, but if you follow these steps, you will be ready for it. If you have any questions about staying warm this winter, or anything else real estate related, give us a call or shoot us an email!
