Summer Home Improvement Project Lists Include Insulation

Scouring the web for our Summer Home Improvement tips list uncovers a few good articles from a variety of sources.  We found three lists that provide a good cross section of sources from RIS Media’s real estate driven news, to Living Green Magazine’s website and all the way down under with Australia’s number one online news source (in recognition of the many visitors to this website from the other side of the planet.)

These lists combine for many good home improvement projects and tips.  Here is a compiled list from all three:

  • Insulation upgrade
  • Gutter Cleaning
  • Window Replacement
  • Foundation Repair
  • Mold Removal
  • Toilet Repair
  • Sump Pump Service
  • Wiring Upgrade
  • Septic Tank Pumping
  • Replace Sewer Line
  • Energy Audit
  • New Appliances
  • Tankless Water Heater
  • Seal HVAC Ducts
  • Insulating Window Coverings
  • Bioethanol Fireplace
  • Re-Seal Patio Decking

One thing all three lists agree on is adding or upgrading insulation.  It is still the most cost-efficient investment for improving home energy efficiency.  No other home improvement can deliver the immediate savings and quick return on investment that insulation offers.

For those projects that do improve home energy efficiency, like upgrading insulation, there are ways to get funding assistance.  Many utility companies and local and state governments offer rebates or other incentives.  It may also be possible to obtain special financing through PACE loan programs.  These continue to expand in many states.

The longer summer days are perfect for taking on home improvement projects.  Make insulation number one on the list now and reap the benefits next winter and for years to come.
