Plan ahead for Repairs

Some things just sneak up on you. Unpleasant surprises like sudden repair bills can put a huge strain on your wallet, and when dealing with mechanical equipment in the home, chances are you will need to hire someone for repairs at some point in the future.

It’s never fun getting caught with your pants down, so what can you do to minimize the sting?

First and foremost, we suggest getting your appliances and HVAC equipment (Furnaces, air conditioners, water heaters, etc.) onto a routine maintenance schedule. For example, your HVAC equipment, both furnaces and air conditioners, should be serviced once yearly. The best time to have your HVAC equipment serviced is at the beginning of its running season, that way if there are any small problems, they can be caught before they turn into a big repair.

Another thing to do is get small issues checked out immediately. Small problems, when left unchecked, often lead to bigger, more expensive problems in a relatively short time. Taking care of these issues before they reach that point will save you a lot of grief.

Another great thing to do is SAVE ahead. 15 dollars per pay doesn’t sound like much, but it can go a long way when it comes to repairs. Fifteen dollars per pay adds up to $390 over the course of the year. Even if the repair is bigger than expected, this money will lessen the burden on your bank accounts.
