Owning a home is no easy task. There are constantly changes and upgrades to be made, on top of daily maintenance and monthly payments. With a brand new year around the corner, it’s time to make more changes, promises, and resolutions for your home. Here are our top home improvement projects to tackle in 2017:
Make a Cleaning Schedule
Keep the mess under control by creating a weekly or monthly check-up on your home. Include checking on your plumbing and HVAC systems too! This will help you prevent future damage and expensive repairs. It’s beneficial to hire a professional for this process because they can provide you with expert opinions and solutions.
Budget for improvements
Creating a budget for home improvements can help prevent overspending and make it easier to find the money for major replacements and updates on appliances. A little saving can go a long way – protect your home and finances by having an expenditure plan.
Purify your indoor air quality
According to the EPA, indoor air quality is one of the top environmental health hazards. Your homes air quality is at most risk in the winter when we have all of our windows and doors shut tight. Eliminate harmful toxins with these tips:
– Change furnace filters regularly.
– Invest in a portable air cleaner to filter the toxins in the air and purify your home.
– Use low-VOC paints when remodeling your rooms.
Shrink your bills
Often the first step in lowering your bills is going green. Despite popular belief, you don’t need to buy a hybrid car or install solar panels in order to be successful.
– Switch off your lights and all other appliances when they are not in use.
– Turn off your air conditioner when you leave your house and put your heater down to 55 degrees at night.
– Install LED light bulbs and a low-flow showerhead.
