New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

As 2019 comes to a close, you may find yourself reflecting on the last decade and making big plans for the decade to come. This is the perfect time for fresh starts, but don’t limit yourself to resolutions for your waistline or personal improvement.

Why not set resolutions to improve your home as well? You can enhance your comfort level, improve your curb appeal, lower your energy bills, and boost your home value if you embrace some of the following home improvement resolutions for 2020.

  1. Embrace smart technology to gain control over your HVAC system

What would happen if you could put your thermostat on a timer? You could set that timer to keep your home toasty warm or breezy cool when you’re home while delivering less heat or air conditioning when you’re away. When the weather changes unexpectedly, you could adjust your thermostat settings from your cellphone.

All of that and more can become your reality with the installation of a smart thermostat. It’s a simple home upgrade that will have a substantial impact on your lifestyle and your budget.

2. Have your indoor air quality assessed

One of the most essential services we offer to homes in North County is a thorough evaluation of indoor air quality. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency stresses the importance of protecting indoor air quality by noting that most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, and contaminants are often up to five times more concentrated indoors.

If you identify with any of the following statements, an air quality assessment could make your home a healthier environment in the new year:

  • You have indoor pets

  • At least one member of your household suffers from seasonal allergies

  • At least one member of your household struggles with reoccurring sinus infections, coughs, or other cold, flu and allergy symptoms

  • You have seen mold or mildew in your home at any time in the past.

  • You’ve purchased new furniture

  • You clean your home with at least one cleaning solution or spray

  • You’ve used pesticides inside your home at any time in the past

3. Add a deck, patio or screened porch

One of the best things you can do for your home is to extend your living space to the outdoors. Give yourself a peaceful, safe place to absorb the sunshine, entertain guests, and listen to the birds singing. This is one simple home improvement that you can do with even a modest budget.

4. Create a focal point in your landscape design

When was the last time you walked out to the front curb and gave your home a focused look? You see your house so often that it’s easy to overlook an overgrown bush or a dead spot in the grass. Fixing those small issues won’t take much of your time, but they also won’t deliver the most impact.

We encourage you to walk to the curb and think about what pulls your eye when you look at your property. If you don’t have a clear focal point that makes you proud, it’s time to add one. Give your property one spectacular feature that will demand attention. Some of the best options include trees or bushes with bold color or water features like birdbaths, fountains, and ponds.

5. Upgrade your HVAC system

You may need an HVAC upgrade if your heating system isn’t as efficient as it once was, or you’re spending a lot of money and time on service calls or emergency repairs. If your HVAC system is 15 years old or older, you may want to upgrade to save energy and reduce your bills a little. The good news is you have more options now than ever, including innovative technologies like zoned HVAC systems that are customized to your home.
