Unless you’re sitting on a fortune that rivals the fortune of Bill Gates, you’re probably like the rest of us in that you have a limited budget for home remodeling in Phoenix. If so, then you’ll love these cost-cutting tips…
1. Consider Long Term Expenses
There are certain materials and features you can install when doing a Phoenix home remodel that may cost more money upfront, yet save money in the long run.
For example, certain types of lighting and appliances (such as those carrying the Energy Star label) may occasionally have a higher upfront cost, yet over the long term you’ll save money on your energy bills.
Another example: some materials may cost less upfront, yet maintenance and replacement costs will be higher in the future. This is another case where spending a little extra money today can save you a lot of money in the future.
Still another way to save both water and money over the long term is to install water-efficient items such as low-flow shower heads and dual-flush toilets in the bathroom.
2. Do an energy audit.
Before you bring in a Phoenix home remodeling contractor, you may want to hire someone to do an energy audit. In some cases, you may even be able to get a free audit from your electrical company (call to ask). This energy audit will uncover places where your home could be more energy efficient, which will save you money over the long term.
Your Phoenix home remodeling contractor will be able to take care of many of these suggested tasks, such as replacing inefficient appliances, replacing old windows, or even resealing around windows and doors.
You’ll likely be able to take care of the smaller tasks yourself, such as planting trees to provide natural shade over your air conditioner, or wrapping an insulating blanket around your water heater to help conserve the heat.
