Make Your Home Go Greener With These Tips

Zero waste is a concept that many cities are aiming for. It means that they literally will not have any trash or waste that isn’t being repurposed. It’s a noble goal that requires cooperation from all kinds of businesses, residents and the community at large. You can do your part by stepping up your own recycling programs around the house. Here are some of the ways that you can go greener around your home:

Be Smart With Irrigation

How much money do you think you’re spending on water in your lawns? Although in the fall and winter rains take care a lot of that work, there are ways to lower those cost even more. Start by programming your system to rule water either in the early morning or late evening. That way the heat of the day won’t evaporate the water. You should also install rain sensors to prevent sprinklers from turning on when there is a storm.

Upgrade to Energy Efficient Appliances

You may be shopping for some major kitchen appliances in the coming months. If it has been a while since you bought a refrigerator or washing machine, then you want to make sure to look for anything that is Energy Star rated. This means it has been designed specifically to be energy efficient. You might even discover that there are some rebates and tax credits available for buying these types of appliances. They may be a bit more expensive but that money is quickly offset by those rebates and lower energy bills.

Maintain Your Water Heater

An older model water heater uses gas to heat up to 70 gallons of water at a time. You can make that heater work more efficiently by simply lowering the temperature of the water by 5 or 10°. If you can also insulate the heater, then you will cut down on the warmth escaping. If you do replace your water heater, try and get that metal recycled.

Go Solar

One of the biggest changes you can make around your house would also be the most energy efficient. That would be adding solar panels to your roof. The average cost of a solar system in the United States hovers around $17,000. But again, you might be able to find rebates and tax credits that can bring that number down. With the right system, you could also end up selling energy back to the power company.

Recycle Junk

If you need to get rid of a lot of oversize items, then it makes sense to hire professional junk haulers. But not all junk haulers are the same. Junk King Dayton stands out from the crowd because they are dedicated to a green way of doing business. There make sure that whatever you turn over to them has a chance to be recycled or donated. They’re managing to keep at least 60% of all they collect out of landfills. That’s very impressive by anyone’s standard.

Owning a home means taking pride in that home. A lot of that pride can be directly tied to all the things you can fix. For the first time in your life, you have the opportunity to take on projects that you might not have ever done before.

Change out Air Filters

There should be vents in every room in your house to carry heat or air conditioning. Many of those vents have filters that help keep dust from circulating. As you can imagine, those filters need to be changed. Ideally, they should be replaced every 30 to 90 days. If this is the first time you’re swapping out air filters you may be surprised to find how easy they are to purchase. That’s because most of the vents installed in homes are universal and many stores carry standard sizes. Just make a note in your cell phone of the size you need to buy and swap it out following the directions.

Shutting Off Your Water

Do you know where to shut off the water into your home? Yes, the valves under your sink and toilet are easy to locate but shutting down all the water is a different story. You might have been shown your water about what you moved in but with so much else on your mind you could have forgotten what you were told. The next time you have a plumber over for repairs asked them to show you how to shut off the water. It’s a good thing to do when you going on vacation just to make sure there aren’t any accidents.

Change the Temperature On Your Water Heater

A home’s water heaters one of those things you take for granted until it breaks down. Although servicing and replacing the water heater is a job best left to a certified plumber there’s no reason why you can’t adjust the thermostat. You should check your water to make sure it is at 120°. Anything hire invites unwanted scalding and mineral buildup in your pipes.

Smart Moves to Make As a Landlord

You won’t have to look far online for horror stories about nasty landlords or messy tenants. That shouldn’t dissuade you from entering into a rental property investment. There’s nothing preventing you from finding qualified tenants and creating a positive revenue stream for your investment portfolio. The key to being a successful landlord is staying proactive. Here the smart moves you can make to be that kind of landlord:

kitchen-1256737

Put Everything in Writing

The lease you will enter into with your tenant should spell out all the basic parameters of the rental agreement. That includes when rent is due, late fees, utility costs and whether pets are allowed. You can put in a lot more details as you seem fit. Over the course of a renter’s stay, there may be changes to that apartment that you want to get into writing. For instance, if they want to paint the walls a different color but promised to paint them back white at the end, then that should be in writing. If they replace of one of the kitchen appliances on their own dime, then they should be responsible for its repair and removal when they move out. Everything needs to be in writing.

Pick the Right Rent

When you go to buy a property, the first thing you look at is the value of similar properties in that same neighborhood. That is the same approach you want to take for your rental unit. However, you don’t want to put rent so high so as not to afford it. You can be flexible with the potential tenant if they look for a discount. You should never come up short if you are using that rent to pay off the mortgage but you shouldn’t be too greedy. You don’t want to price yourself out of tenants.

Set Up a Different Cell Number

Your rental property is now going to be your business. That means you should set up a distinct business phone line. It’s not that difficult to have a separate cell phone just for your rental property tenants. At least you know when the phone rings that’s what is going to be about.

Get Help from Professionals

Being a landlord doesn’t mean you have to become overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. You might like to do some DIY maintenance but that doesn’t mean you have to take care of everything at your property. Perfect example: getting rid of rubbish left behind by an old tenant. That is a job best turned over to Junk King Dayton. One call to these junk removal pros will have a pair of movers and a big truck sent to your property within 24 hours. This is the team that will do all the lifting and loading for you. They also make sure everything they collect is disposed of in the proper manner.
