Install Energy-Efficient Appliances
Energy-efficient appliances use less electricity, which lowers your electric bill. This
also reduces your carbon footprint and helps prevent global warming because burning fossil fuels for energy produces greenhouse gases.
Look for the ENERGY STAR label on appliances and other products to guarantee that they’re as efficient as possible. ENERGY STAR certified TVs, refrigerators and light bulbs, for example, use significantly less energy than traditional models.
Make sure to unplug electronics and appliances when not in use, which can prevent “phantom loads” that consume energy even when they’re turned off. This can save a considerable amount of money and prevent CO2 emissions.
Other smart upgrades that can boost your home’s efficiency and sustainability include energy efficient appliances, eco-friendly materials and improved insulation. These upgrades can reduce your energy costs and carbon footprint while adding value to your home.
Add a Deck or Patio
It’s easy to get caught up in home renovation projects that seem like a great idea but won’t really do much for your property’s resale value. Thankfully, patios, porches and decks can offer a better return on your investment than some other types of home upgrades.
Adding a porch or deck will make your home more appealing to buyers, especially if it’s well-maintained and has lots of features. However, it’s important to note that patios don’t increase your home’s value as much as decks do. This is because they’re often built within the lawn and don’t add square footage.
A home warranty offers protection against unexpected repair bills and helps prevent depletion of emergency funds. However, it is important to weigh costs and benefits before deciding whether a home warranty is right for you. Be sure to understand the difference between home owners insurance vs home warranty.
Premiums, coverage options and exclusions vary by warranty company and plan. To get a better idea of what to expect, ask sellers to provide sample contracts to review.
Coverage for Appliances
The costs of repairing and replacing appliances and systems in your home can be expensive. A home warranty can protect you from large repair bills and save you money in the long run.
Many plans offer a variety of options for appliance coverage to meet your budget. Choose a provider that offers a clear contract with clearly defined terms, conditions, clauses and exclusions to avoid any surprises down the line.
When something breaks down, simply file a service request with the home warranty company and they will send someone to evaluate the issue. Then they will decide if it is covered and either repair or replace the appliance for you.
