November is in full swing and you may have already heard Christmas music at the local shopping mall or even on TV. Ready or not, the holidays are just about here which means family gatherings, gift giving, and sprucing up your home.

Even though family is what matters most during the holidays, you don't want to forget about tending to your home. If you find some extra wiggle room in your budget, these are the best ways to spend money on your home this holiday season:

1. New Attic Insulation

Every homeowner in Fort Wayne knows that wintertime means frigid temperatures, snow, sleet, and ice. The attic is one of the major escape points for energy in the home, but the good news is that you don't need to suffer with high energy bills due to an inefficient attic. New attic insulation can help keep heat inside of your home even during the coldest winter days.

If you're looking for a smart way to spend money on your home, new attic insulation is a great way to go.

2. High Tech Thermostat


So perhaps this more of a want than a need, but this is a great gift to your home this year. 

There are a few innovative thermostats on the market that can help keep your home at a comfortable temperature, even when you're out doing your holiday shopping. Consider investing in a high tech thermostat that you can program with your smartphone, so you can turn the heat up and down depending on the temperature and ultimately save more energy.

3. Upgrade Your Flooring

Are you hosting a holiday party this year? Now is perfect time to splurge on that new cherry hardwood flooring that you've had your eye on. It will pull together the interior design of your home and leave guests swooning.

4. Add a New Wreath (and a New Front Door)

Wreaths are a festive way to brighten up your entry door, but how about replacing your entire entry door? If your door is worn and dated, a new door can add that extra look of holiday cheer. Choose a bold red to complement your home's curb appeal and offer a fun and festive touch.

5. Replace Your Windows

Give your home the ultimate gift this year with new home windows. If your energy bills are costing more than your mortgage, replacement windows can help keep more money in your wallet to use for the holidays. Choose from a variety of sizes and aesthetic options, and create the perfect look and feel for your home this holiday season.

Christmas isn't here quite yet, but we hope that you'll soon find yourself in the holiday spirit and upgrade your home with windows, doors, and more.
