Update Rain Gutters
Our rain gutters, though often forgotten until they have created a massive icicle, are another home element that will need your attention eventually. Why? Your gutters perform an important job — they provide proper drainage. If your gutters fail, this failure may lead to catastrophic consequences, such as water damage and soil erosion around your home. Get your gutters inspected when you are considering repairing your roof and get them replaced at the same time.
Natural light is incredibly important for your home. Natural light not only can help you lower your electric bill because you don’t have to turn on as many lights, it can provide health benefits. Adding skylights can also add value to your home. If you are considering installing skylights, do so before you replace your roof!
Installing solar panels can be a great home improvement project to invest in before the heat of summer is at its fullest. Why? A solar array can help you save a considerable amount on your electric bill, and when do we tend to spend the most on our energy bills? Many times, it’s in the summer as we are running the AC to combat the sweltering heat outside. Installing a solar array for your home can also up your home’s value. Even though installing solar panels on your home does cost money, the return you will get on your investment will be worth it.
Get Your AC Inspected
Getting your AC unit inspected is important for not only having a working AC unit all summer long, but also to keep your energy bill low. An AC unit that isn’t running its best will up your energy bill costs and may be damaging itself. Getting all needed repairs done during the spring will give you peace of mind knowing that your unit will keep you cool all summer. Also, an efficient AC unit and solar could mean a big financial break for you this summer!
Make Other Home Improvements
Spring and summer are the perfect times to install all those upgrades that you have always wanted for your home such as a deck, a hot tub, and enclosed porch, and maybe even a patio upgrade with new furniture. It is also a great time to work on interior maintenance and remodeling. Install new kitchen cabinets, countertops, wood floors, or that bathtub that you have always wanted!
Money can be the most limiting factor for many home improvement projects. However, you have more options than paying straight out of pocket. Loans and payment plans are often available and can be quite advantageous when considering the amount of value you are adding to your home. We at RGS understand that installing solar panels on your home can seem to many as a luxury that they will be unlikely to have. For this reason, we offer payment plans, allowing you to get solar now. Paying one more bill during the month may seem like a deterrent. However, many of our clients find it easier than expected because as soon as they install their solar system, they get a return on their investment, allowing them to pay for their system with the money that it is saving them.
