Expensive Home Mistakes You Can Avoid
By: First Weber
• Using Traditional Light Bulbs
Over its life span, an incandescent bulb can use $180 worth of electricity. A CFL will only use $41 worth of electricity over the same time period. Even better is the LED bulb, which only uses $30 per bulb.
• Ignoring a Leaky Faucet
A leaky faucet that drips one drop per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year, which is enough water to take more than 180 showers.
• Using the Wrong Air Filter Size
Using the wrong filter or a dirty filter can increase your power bill and cause expensive problems for your furnace down the road.
• Water Heater Temperature Set Too High
Decrease the temperature in the summer, and bump it back up when winter comes.
• Leaky Windows and Doors
Caulk leaky windows and put rubber seals around doors to keep winter winds out and warmth in.
• Ignoring Curled Shingles
If you see any possible issues with your roof, repair them as soon as possible, as this will save you significant costs later.
