Make Home Improvements Your Resolution for 2013!
Every New Year we all make a number of resolutions to improve ourselves. These include the standard “lose weight, get a better job, be a better parent,” character-changing resolutions. Although they often can be life changing, they also very often are left incomplete. This year, why not be a little more pragmatic and make some New Year’s resolutions to better our homes?
Our homes are the places where spend most of our time; in the end, making some big changes within the house could actually lead to some personal lifestyle alterations. So, without further ado, here is a list of potential New Year’s home improvement resolutions for you to make:
Make Your Home Eco-Friendly:
It’s not just about jumping on the environmental ‘green-craze’ wagon. Making your home more eco-friendly not only helps the environment but also can save you a bundle of money. There are a number of ways to retrofit your home to be green, including changing your light bulbs to LED lights, installing a programmable thermostat to regulate your home temperature, and installing faucet aerators, low flow shower heads, and dual flush toilets to save water.
Moreover, properly maintaining your heating and cooling equipment will ensure peak operating efficiency, save energy and money.
Be Prepared For Storms:
Hurricane Irene and Hurricane Sandy left many in our area without power for days. A loss of electricity to your home means no lights, no power for the refrigerator, appliances, computer and more. Can you live with that? Being prepared means planning ahead with a backup generator. They’re quiet, powerful enough to run everything in your home and they even can turn on automatically when you are away. Whether you choose a portable unit or opt for an installation of a gas powered unit, backup generators can give you and your family peace of mind.
Poor indoor air quality can impact the health of you and your family. Whether it’s pollen and dust that causes runny noses, sneezing and itchy eyes, severe asthma and allergy reactions; or airborne viruses and bacteria causing colds, respiratory problems and flu, indoor air quality has big effects on your health. Did you know EPA studies have shown that levels of air pollutants indoors may be 2 to 5 times greater than outdoors? Indoor air is recycled over and over, causing it to trap and build up pollutants.
In 2013, consider how you can improve the air quality in your home so you can breathe easier and improve the quality of your life. Our skilled team has the expertise to diagnose sources and remove problems from every room in your house. From your kitchen to your living room and the baby’s room we can help provide a healthy indoor environment
