26 Smart Ways to Save Money as a Homeowner

Becoming a homeowner is exciting…and expensive. When you purchase your own home, you are responsible for many different costs. Not only your mortgage and homeowners insurance, but also utilities, upkeep, and any repairs that need to happen.

Having an emergency fund is a must. Things will break. Preparing yourself for the inevitable will save stress and your credit card balance.

Energy Saving Tips for Homeowners Heating and cooling costs can really add up when you own your own home. Fortunately, there are many products available that can help cut down on those costs. Here are my favorite energy saving tips to keep those energy bills low.

The smart thermostats available now can be programmed according to your daily schedule but also can learn your household’s patterns and adjust the temperature depending on if the home is occupied or not.

This product is an extra barrier to keep air from sneaking in through small cracks around your doors or window. Most weatherstripping is self-adhesive so it is relatively easy to apply.

Weather Stripping

Window Insulation Kit

Door Sweep/Draft Stopper

The gap beneath doors can be a major source of hot or cold air coming into your home. There are a couple of different types of draft-stopping products that will keep the air out and your heating/cooling bills lower.
