12 Tips That Save You Money
At Moonlighting our mission is to help you make money. Economically speaking, saving you money is practically the same thing. So we put together a short checklist designed to save homeowners from future costs and headaches as we head towards shorter days and colder weather.
☐ Fireplace, Damper, & Chimney – If the creosote has more than 1/8″ of buildup, it should be cleaned
☐ Heating System – Properly serviced heating systems run more efficiently and last longer
☐ Roof – Missing or damaged shingles can cause costly water damage
☐ Driveway/Sidewalk – Seal any cracks to prevent them from getting bigger
☐ Exterior Gaps – Caulk and seal any gaps that are letting cold air in
☐ Exterior Paint – Touch up where it’s peeling
☐ Batteries – Smoke Detectors, Carbon Monoxide Detectors, Flashlights, Emergency Radios
☐ Screens – Install storm doors and windows
☐ Furnace Filter – Improve efficiency and purify your air
☐ Gutters & Downspouts – Clean out debris and clogs
☐ Leaves – Rake them, vacuum them up, blow them off the driveway
☐ Trees & Bushes – Keep limbs at least a yard away from your house
