Primerica Presents Five Tips to Take Care of Your Home

If you’re like many people, your home is your biggest investment. Protecting that investment is an important part of your overall financial health – but in these tough economic times, few of us have loads of extra cash to spend on home repairs or costly upkeep. Fortunately, there are a few simple (and inexpensive) things you can do right now to take care of your “home sweet home”!

  1. Boost Your Insurance. If you own your home, you need homeowner’s insurance. Primerica Secure™, an auto and homeowner’s insurance referral program offered through Primerica, helps you shop around for the best coverage – at the best price.* Contact your local Primerica representative for details.
  2. Get a Sweep for Less $. The heating season is about to start, so take advantage of last minute summer deals on chimney sweeps. Remove fireplace ashes to prevent mason damaging moisture buildup. Cost: $100 – $300.**
  3. Take a Good Look. Inspect the exterior of your home for loose trim or siding, cracks or crumbling mortar. Also inspect your attic for any signs of leaks. Give siding a wash with a garden hose and watered down laundry detergent.
  4. Make an Appointment. Your HVAC system needs to be professionally inspected and adjusted before cold weather hits. Cost: $75 – $175 per year for an HVAC service contract.**
  5. Evict Bugs. Ants and termites can do serious structural damage. Get your home professionally checked for pests before damage occurs. Cost $75 – $100 for an average sized home.**

Just doing a little maintenance work today can help you prevent major (and costly) repairs tomorrow!
