New Year’s Resolutions for your Home…

The new year is here and we all have resolutions that we want to achieve to make 2016 the best year possible. For some, these resolutions include home improvement. Here are some tips to making your home better in 2016.

  1. Cut energy use: start with your HVAC ductwork. Ducts are notorious energy-wasters, leaking your heating and cooling air through holes and connections.
  2. Purify indoor air: upgrade and replace your air filters.

  3. Budget for improvements: set aside money for home improvements you want to accomplish this new year.


  4. De-clutter: clean out closets and cabinets and make trips to Good Will and St. Vincent’s.

  5. Support your community: shop local retailers for all your household goods and home furnishings.

  6. Curb home water use.

  7. Share home improvement projects with family and friends. Your brother helps trim tree limbs at your place; you help your brother paint his family room. 

  8. Exercise your DYI skills: try wallpapering that quest room you are remodeling yourself. 

  9. Use maintenance free material: make your future less stressful by using maintenance free products when you do home improvements.

  10. Get all the clutter off the dining room table and have some dinner parties this year. Entertaining is good for the soul.
