It seems like daily we are getting alerts on our phones that it’s going to be another day with low temperatures. Although the holidays are officially over, winter season is still in full force and trying to keep warm can easily take a toll on your wallet. For those looking to save money on their energy bill, we found a bunch of great tips at thesimpledollar.com and have included a few of the tips below:
If you have an attic, you want to check that it has proper insulation. As we all know, heat rises and by confirming that there is a sufficient amount of insulation you can easily save on your energy bill.
Update your home to include a programmable thermostat. This allows you to set the thermostat to go up and down depending on the time of the day, who is home, etc. You will likely not even notice the changes, but your bill will reflect it.
Replace your air filters regularly. When air filters are clean it allows air to flow unencumbered through them. This keeps energy levels down and is a healthy rule of thumb anyway.
Make sure all the vents around your house are clean and away from objects that could block the air flow into your house. Blocked air vents only frustrate you when you wonder why you’ve cranked the heat up three times and can’t tell the difference. Simply rearranging some furniture can make a big difference.
Replace all your traditional light bulbs with LED or CFL lights. These cost more than regular light bulbs, but they are worth it in the long run as they last longer and use less energy.
Simple changes like these can have a drastic impact on your wallet and after all the Christmas shopping hustle, who couldn’t benefit from saving money?

"There are so many realtors to choose from, but Ivy Beller and the Brenkus Team are top-notch professionals who will go above and beyond your expectations. We became Ivy's clients when we were attempting to sell a condo we inherited. We originally listed with Zillow because we were lured by their promises and testimonials of a quick and easy cash sale. However, it turned into a living nightmare, and we will never go with Zillow again. Because it was not a person-to-person contract, everything was via e-mail. There were no less than five different people from Zillow e-mailing us daily, requesting information, signatures, and documentations, sometimes the exact same requests from several different people, none of whom communicated with one another. It was chaotic, disorganized, confusing, and high-pressure. They kept sending us urgent messages to "sign or else." The documents were very confusing, and when a lien came up on the property (we knew nothing about it), we knew it had to be an error since the condo was already cleared during probate. No one at Zillow could figure it out, and they kept sending us e-mails saying that we have to sign, but if the lien came up as valid, we would have to pay them. After getting nowhere with Zillow, we enlisted the help of Ivy Beller. From the minute she reviewed the contracts, she knew what to do. She immediately got on the phone to investigate the lien. She resolved the matter personally within a week. In the meantime, Rachel was getting us offers on the condo; within a few days, we had two offers. Within two weeks, we had a cash buyer. Moreover, the offer was more than what Zillow was going to pay. The lien was removed, the deal was closed, and we had cash in hand within a month.
Throughout the entire contract, there was continual, open communication. We received phone calls and text messages, and everything was explained to us thoroughly. They were always available to answer questions and address concerns. In this digital age when everything is moving toward automation, nothing can replace the value of the personal relationship with a real-life realtor. Ivy and her team were personally involved in every aspect of the sale, and they always had our best interests at heart. They worked with integrity and had the expertise which enabled them to handle the unexpected. Most importantly, they genuinely cared about us and truly worked for their clients' interest.
We highly recommend Ivy Beller for all your real estate needs. You can trust her and her team 100%. "
