Owning a home is expensive! There is so much to take care of and if you’re not prepared for it, it can steal away your savings pretty quick! These DIY home fixes are a great way to save money as well as keeping your home intact and running smoothly!
DIY Plumbing fixes: Never call the plumber again!
- Use Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover to clear out any buildup in your tubs, sinks, and showers. Simply poor in the product and let it do it’s magic! It has been proven that Roto-Rooter Gel Clog Remover clears tough clogs up to 50% faster than other national brands. It is able to power through standing water to remove all types of stubborn clogs, hair, soap scum and grease. I love it!
- Use Roto-Rooter Septic Treatment monthly to avoid costly and messy backups. It uses natural enzymes to eliminate paper, fats, oils, grease, protein, and starch. All you have to do is pour it in the toilet bowl and flush people!! It’s great!
- If you really want to treat your plumbing nicely, use Roto-Rooter’s Build Up Remover to prevent grease buildup in your kitchen sink.
DIY AC Fixes: Keep it cool and pay less in utilities!
- Put in a screen door. This will allow you to open it for a nice breeze in the spring/summer/fall, and by choosing an aluminum door with an interchangeable storm window, you can also save on heating costs come winter, especially if you have an older, uninsulated entry door. All you need to do is measure, choose a door, and install!
- Tidy Up the AC Compressor/Condenser. Start by trimming any bushes or overhanging branches that may impede airflow. Next, turn off the power and carefully brush out debris from the fins. Hose down the unit from top to bottom. Straighten any bent fins with a special tool called a fin comb. Consult your owner’s manual for other tips and tricks to keep things running smoothly!
- Add window awnings. Awnings reduce solar heat gain, glare, and UV damage to your furniture without blocking airflow or views. They come in designs to match house and can add some aesthetic appeal!
DIY Water Saving Fixes: Save on utilities and lower your water usage
- Use a rain barrel in the spring. Harvesting spring rains means you’ll be ready to water the garden come summer’s first dry spell. You can save thousands of gallons of water to be ready for the summer!
- Tune up or install a sprinkler system. Double check your connections, heads, and piping. Also make sure that you have an automatic sprinkler system that has rain delay.
