2021 is here and everyone is busy getting started on their New Year’s resolutions. But do not forget that your home might need a few resolutions as well!
Make your home feel shiny and new again by following these home maintenance New Year’s resolutions.
Clean Your Dryer Vent
Cleaning your dryer vent is an easy home maintenance task to overlook, but ignoring it could cost you in the long run. Not only does a dirty dryer vent increase your monthly energy costs and decrease your dryer’s effectiveness, but it is also a major fire hazard! Make it a point to have a professional periodically clean your dryer vent.
Check Your Sump Pump
A properly functioning sump pump is essential to preventing a flooded basement. This year, make an effort to check your sump pump regularly to ensure everything is flowing smoothly.
Install Motion Detection Lights
Installing outdoor lighting with motion sensors is an easy and effective home maintenance project to protect your home from potential theft. These lights are also extremely helpful and convenient at night.
Invest in Surge Protectors
Surge protectors shield your electronics and appliances from power surges. By simply plugging your electronics into surge protectors, you can save thousands of dollars by not needing to replace your devices in the event of a power surge.
Change Your Filters
Regularly changing your filter is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your HVAC unit. New filters increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling unit and save you money, so be sure to add this task to your home maintenance checklist in 2021!
