Should we wipe out savings or go with home equity line of credit to finance home improvements?

Question by boots: Should we wipe out savings or go with home equity line of credit to finance home improvements?
My husband and I are debating how to finance some home improvement projects. He says use savings, I say use a line of credit(repay within two years hopefully) I am afraid if we use savings we will never replace it. He doesn’t want debt. Any opinions?

Neither. Never use all of your savings or borrow money for a luxury expense.

Save up the extra money and pay cash.
