How to Lower Your Heating and Cooling Costs When temperatures drop below freezing or rise to the point of sweltering, does it seem like your wallet develops leaks? If keeping your home comfortable year-round taxes your budget or tempts you to forgo comfort, you need to find a better way. Try implementing simple methods to lower your heating and cooling bills. Save on Air Conditioning If you didn't have to heat or cool your home, you could easily cut your energy bills in half, as the Department of Energy points out.

Try implementing these cooling strategies to save money while keeping cool. Raise the AC temperature. Most experts suggest set...

What to Look for When Buying an Older Home Anyone who has visited Downtown & Midtown Mobile, AL knows how beautiful historic architecture can be. But, are these older homes good buys? Considering that most of a home's components deteriorate with age, you may be not only buying a vintage home, but vintage problems as well. Here's a quick look at some of the more common problems with older homes. Foundation It would seem that an old house has done all the settling it's going to do, right? Wrong! The rate at which the house settles diminishes over time, but it never completely stops – especially if the house has never been "piered." Piers are long steel shafts that are driven through the soil and into the bedrock below. This process takes the weight of the home off unstable soil, and the ...

What You Must Know About Insurance When Buying a Home Purchasing a home involves getting to know a lot of financial terms and processes that most first-time homebuyers have never been exposed to. One of the most confusing is insurance. If you've never owned a home before, your familiarity with insurance most likely centers around auto insurance, health insurance, life insurance and, perhaps, renter's insurance. Even then, your level of familiarity may be minimal, if you are like most Americans. In fact, a mere 14 percent of those who have health insurance understand even the most basic insurance jargon, such as deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance, according to a study published in the Journal of Health Economics. The various types of insurance required in the average real estate ...

How to Bring Nature Inside What do you love most about nature and the outdoors? Is it the first sign of spring blooms, the colorful autumn foliage, or maybe the smell of fresh cut grass on a warm summer day? Do you enjoy the soothing sound of a trickling creek or a bright blue sky on a sunny day? Incorporate these organic elements into your décor and invite nature into your home. Don't Block Natural Views One of the easiest ways to invite nature into your home is to ensure a direct connection through glass doors and windows. Leave them undressed to welcome in sunlight and enjoy unobstructed views of the outdoors. When safety and privacy are concerns, dress windows in airy, natural fibers that allow daylight indoors and can be easily opened. Ensure that windows are operable so that you c...

Septic Tank Use and Maintenance Guide Unseen, buried in your yard, it's constantly at work. While you're away during the day, it's at work too. As you sleep at night, it's still working. Through holidays and all types of weather, it's working yet. In fact, your septic tank never stops. That is, not as long as you care for it properly. Here's what you need to know to keep your septic tank working behind the scenes every day of the year. How a Septic Tank Works Whether you call it an individual sewage disposal system, an onsite wastewater treatment system, an on-lot system or any combination of terms – a typical septic tank isn't fancy or complicated.

Measuring the Value of a View Suppose you own a castle on the flats and your brother owns one high atop a hill that features amazing, unobstructed views. Aside from location, the two castles are identical. Which one has the higher resale value? If you guessed that it's the hilltop castle, you are correct. When valuing two similar pieces of property, location is king and everything else is secondary. While it's easy to say that the home with the view is "worth more" than the home without one, there are no rules on how much value the amenity adds. Agents and Appraisers Real estate professionals are at odds over this. Some claim that there is no premium for a view while others say that a view can add up to 15 percent to the value of the home over others lacking the amenity. Researchers Ma...

Tips for Conserving Water at Home Perhaps it's a little too easy to overlook the importance of water. It's simple, after all, to turn the tap and watch it flow. Consider, though, that only 1 percent of the Earth's water is useable. The rest is either salty or frozen. Not to mention the amount of energy used in acquiring, treating and transporting fresh water to consumers. Saving water in and around your house battles high water bills while helping to save energy and conserve a precious resource. Saving Water in the Bathroom Turn off the water while you brush your teeth, shave and wash your hands. Work up the lather before turning on the water to rinse your hands. Use a glass of water to rinse your mouth. These habits can save gallons of water each day; the more people in your home, the ...

3 Things to Consider Before Buying a Town House Have you ever noticed how the terms "town house" and "condo" are sometimes used interchangeably? This is most likely because both types of housing structures may be governed by homeowners associations. That, however, is where the similarity between the two ends. Comparing condos with town houses is akin to comparing apples and oranges. When most consumers hear the word "condo," they picture a unit in a larger structure. For the most part, this is accurate. The problem, though, is that "condominium" is actually a form of ownership, not a type of structure. There are three major types of homeownership: Condominium Fee simple Cooperative Condominium owners own the interiors of their units and share ownership of the common areas. "Town house,...

Design Tips for Your Children's Playroom                                     When designing a playroom for your children, there are some key factors to consider. This is a room where your children will learn, grow and flourish both physically and socially. It's important to craft an inspirational, fun and safe environment. Combine these elements to create a playful, carefree environment in your home. Color & Theme Consider your child's personality and preferences – and embrace them!
