It's so interesting to see the different answers from different areas/climates. Pool pumps! Far and few inbetween her in VA! I think that there are so many things that can be done that a home owner may feel overwhelmed and just not get anything done. It's nice to see posts like Rj's that is area specific. I think it makes it easier for a homeowner to picture themselves making a few changes that they see recommended from someone who is an agent in their own area and probably seeing a lot of houses that give them new ideas.
