There is nothing more exciting than becoming a homeowner! While the square footage, beautiful interior/exterior and opportunities for entertaining is thrilling, homeownership can certainly come with a plethora of additional costs that you. As a previous renter, you may not have been aware of these costs. Aside from your mortgage, power and water bill, you could be accruing incremental costs month to month. However, there are a few ways that you can ensure your monthly bills are as low as possible. It all comes down to how you are managing your energy use.
Apart from keeping your lights turned off when you aren’t in a room, there are other small ways you can be saving money that might be escaping you! For example, did you know that you could be wasting thousands of dollars per year simply because of heat and air escaping through your windows? That’s right!
It is said that once your new home hits roughly eight-ten years of age, you should consider updating your windows and their seals. Much like anything, wear and tear is something that can be expected. With this wear and tear, window seals can loosen and let your heat and air escape. This inevitably causes your energy bills to rise! You should pay extra attention to your windows if they are made with wood frames as not all frames are created equal. It is also important that you do your research to make sure your replacement windows are of the highest quality. You don’t want to have to go through the process too soon after getting your new windows.
