At Pearl Properties, we’ve helped a lot of homeowners with a lot of problems… and we’re no spring chicken when it comes to keeping a property heated on a budget.
So we thought we’d come by and drop some tips for you 🙂
Here you go!
Use a Space Heater — Many of the newer space heaters are extremely energy efficient. So try turning down the thermostat by a few degrees and put the space heater in the rooms where people spend the most time. Most of them are also easily portable and can be taken wherever they’re needed.
Smart Thermostat — A smart thermostat is a little spendy up-front, but it’ll save money in the long-run. It allows homeowners to set exactly when the house should be exactly what temperature. Most people save about $180 per year by using a smart thermostat.
Use Credit Cards — It might sound counterintuitive, but we recommend using credit cards to pay utility bills, so long as the credit card used offers good cash back and there isn’t a high transaction fee.
Install Solar Panels — Installing solar panels is a big upfront investment, but it’ll definitely save plenty of money in the long-run on all of the home’s utility bills. Plus, there’s a big tax deduction included when solar panels are installed on a home.
Hope that helps!
