With the 2017 right around the corner, many homeowners will find themselves making resolutions for the New Year—whether it’s going to the gym or saving more money. While we can’t necessarily help you with a good workout routine for next year, Universal Windows Direct specializes in helping homeowners save money with premium exterior products.
As the New Year fast approaches, here are the best resolutions for your home in terms of saving both money and energy in 2017:
#1: Clean Your Gutters Every Season
As a resident of Denver, you’re no stranger to falling autumn leaves and other debris that makes its way inside your gutter system. For 2017, one of your first resolutions for your home is to clean your gutters every season. Although this can be quite a chore, it helps to keep your gutters from clogging and causing foundational issues.
If you don’t want to be bothered with cleaning your gutters every season, the good news is that there is an easier way. Consider adding gutter protection to your home so debris stays out of your gutters all year long.
#2: Keep Your Utility Bills Low
Rising energy bills are frustrating to every homeowner, especially during the holiday season. However, you can get your energy bills under control in several ways. One method is to install new weather stripping around your windows and doors to block out drafts, and make sure your windows are locked to create an airtight seal.
On the other hand, you may need to consider installing entirely new energy efficient windows. This will help maximize your energy savings while keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
#3: You’ll Perk up Your Exterior
If it’s been a few years (or decades) since your home had a makeover, 2017 is the year to finally give your home a new glow. This is beneficial for aesthetic purposes as well as increasing your home’s value.
Consider upgrading your exterior with high quality vinyl siding. It’s available in a variety of colors and styles, including vinyl cedar shakes. It’s the ultimate way to complement your curb appeal and make your home look exceptionally beautiful.
#4: You’ll Keep Your Roof in Tip Top Shape
As you’re trying to improve your home in 2017, don’t overlook your roof. An outdated roof can cause leaks in the home, which may ultimately lead to water damage. Furthermore, old roofing can also cause you to lose up to 50% of your home’s energy and make your HVAC system run in overdrive.
These 4 resolutions can help your home become a more beautiful and energy efficient place to live. If you need assistance with meeting your 2017 home resolutions, contact Universal Windows Direct for assistance.
