When I was younger, & only had a few bills to pay each month, I had a ton of money that I could spend on whatever I wanted, and of course, a “ton” of money back then was particularly only about a hundred dollars per paycheck, so it wasn’t like I could go out on the village like a high roller every weekend.
- I had other things to save up for, after all! As I got older though, I found that despite making a better salary, I was still paying more bills.
I had to beginning finding ways to save money, & soon! One of the best ways for me to save money now as a homeowner is keeping all of our appliances tuned upâ€¦ Every 3 months, I will coordinate a visit from our HVAC maintenance company, & have them check out our heating & s to ensure they’re up to par. My gas gas furnace gets cracked open, & the HVAC maintenance worker will inspect the inner workings & scrub where cleaning is needed. Meanwhile, the air conditioning component outside will also be checked out, & ran tests on to ensure it is operating at peak efficiency, however before calling it for the afternoon, the HVAC maintenance worker will also test our temperature control & make sure it is accurately learning the temperature of the house. Once that’s confirmed, he’ll even change out the air filter just as a precaution! I like having this maintenance plan in location with our HVAC maintenance provider, because I pay the same flat rate each month to have these services rendered. And that, our friend, is how you save money in the long run.
