The New Year is a time when millions of people focus on self-improvement. But what about home improvement? Here are four things you can do to make your home a better place in 2017 and beyond:
1. Reduce your energy consumption.
Whether you are looking to save money or the environment, make it a goal to trim your energy usage this year. Even small changes around the home can make a big difference. For instance, upgrading to LED bulbs can reduce your lighting costs by 80%!
2. Improve indoor air quality.
When you hear the term “air pollution”, you probably visualize a heavily-populated city, or a cluster of smokestacks. What you may not know is that the air in your home could be up to ten times more polluted than the air outside! Indoor air pollution has been linked to several health concerns, so make better indoor air quality a priority this year.
3. Enhance your curb appeal.
Your home’s exterior and landscaping is the first impression that guests will have of your home – don’t you want to make it a good one? Here are 20 low-cost projects you can start today to make your home the talk of the neighborhood.
4. Protect your power supply.
More than 500,000 Americans are affected by power outages every day. They are especially common in New England, where heavy rain and snowstorms are a year-round occurrence. Fortunately, a standby generator can detect when the power goes out, and automatically turns on to provide your home with enough energy to run all of your lights, appliances, and electronics.
