The New Year is upon us and everyone is busy preparing for their New Year resolutions. But don’t forget that your home might need a few resolutions as well. Make your home feel shiny and new again with these remarkable New Year resolutions!
1. Clean Your Dryer Vent
This is an important New Year resolution for your home because the dryer vent is often overlooked. A dirty dryer vent not only costs you money, due to being inefficient and causing you to run your dryer for longer periods of time, but a dirty dryer vent is also a major fire hazard. There are nearly 16,000 house fires each year caused by lint trapped in dryer vents. So don’t forget to have those dirty dryer vents cleaned periodically.
2. Check Your Sump Pump
A properly functioning sump pump is absolutely essential to preventing a flooded basement. You want to check your sump pump regularly to ensure that everything is flowing smoothly.
3. Protect Your Home with Motion Detector Lights
Having an Electrician install motion detector lights is an effective way to protect your home from potential theft. Motion detector lights are also extremely helpful when you need a little extra light at night.
4. Remember Surge Protectors are Your Friend
This New Year invest, in some powerful surge protectors. Surge protectors protect your electronics and appliances from power surges. Which means by simply plugging your electronics into surge protectors, you can save thousands of dollars by not needing to replace your devices every time a surge hits.
5. Change Your Filter Monthly
Regularly changing your filter is the best way to prolong the life of your furnace and air conditioning units. Plus, your heating and cooling equipment will run more efficiently, saving you money on your monthly power bill.
