Lonely Planet, the travel experts,  ranked Cincinnati #3 in their list of places for travel in 2012.  We're in great company!

Cincinnati was recognized for more than just its river city attributes.  They praised it as a worthy venue for a weekend away. Particularly recognized were Mt.

Get Ready for Cincinnati Winter

by The Cincinnati Team

 

Are You Ready For Winter?                                          

Winter is one of our favorite times of the year! It's often easy to overlook your home's needs with so much going on. Here is a simple checklist of items that can save you money through the winter:

  • Check for leaks and drafts around the house. Replace weather stripping and re-caulk around doors and windows. Drafty doors and windows will cool off the house and cost you money in heating bills.
  • Inspect your attic's insulation. Heat rises so adding good insulation can keep the heat from escaping.
  • Check your heating system. Sometimes something as easy as replacing your filter or having simple maintenance done can save on heating costs.

Consider changing from standard light bulbs to energy saving bulbs. Winter uses a lot of your electricity so even saving a little here and there will help.  Whether you live in a warm or cold climate, take this opportunity to inspect your home systems. You'll be money ahead in the long run!
