There's never been a better time to prioritize caring for and improving your home. "This is something that is going to pay you in the short term and the long term," Micetich says. "These energy savings in terms of your bills and your utilities are very real. And the more we can do to help make sure the homes that are around today are around for another 20, 30, 40, 50 years—it's really something we should be focused and thinking on."7 November 2022
The days are getting shorter—and the nights longer. This likely means that using your indoor lighting will become more of a priority. "Now is a great time to consider replacing your old light bulbs with energy-efficient LED lights," says Micetich. "Not only do these lights last a long time, but they can also help you save money."7 November 2022
It likely comes as no surprise that the end result of even simple DIY projects can oftentimes be more costly than anticipated. “We frequently talk to homeowners about all types of projects, including DIY, and many DIYers consistently tell us their projects took more money and time than expected,” says Micetich. “So if you're really looking to reduce costs, planning is key.”7 November 2022
