Get More From Your Tax Refund by Investing in Your Home
While tax season isn’t exactly something to look forward to, if you’re getting a refund on your tax return, there’s certainly something to smile about. If you invest that refund wisely, it can continue giving back for years, and in most cases, even decades!
Improve Home Comfort & Energy Efficiency
While a kitchen remodel might be at the top of your home improvement list, there are other upgrades that you should consider first. Home performance solutions will not only improve your comfort, but they will ultimately increase energy efficiency so you pay less each month on your utility bills — helping you see a quick return on your investment.
Valuable Home Upgrades
Depending on what your home needs, you should consider the following home improvements:
Air Sealing & Insulation
Air leaks and insulation gaps allow air and heat to move in and out of your home. This reduces your comfort in both summer and winter, strains your HVAC systems, and increases your bills. With air sealing and insulation, you’ll notice a difference in your home’s comfort levels year-round, as well as how much you’re paying for heating and air conditioning.
HVAC System Replacement
Your home’s air conditioner and heating system can’t last forever. Over time it becomes less efficient and is more prone to breakdowns that require expensive repairs. If your systems are aging or you don’t even remember the last time they were serviced, it might be time to upgrade to a new, high-efficiency HVAC system.
Upgrade Your Water Heater
Water heaters don’t tend to present any warning signs before they just suddenly stop working one day. If it’s been over eight years or so since your water heater was installed, or if you’re dissatisfied with how much you’re paying for water heating, it’s time to consider replacing your existing water heater.
