The New Year is a great time to make resolutions … and this includes for your home. The beginning of a new year is a great opportunity to take stock of your home and address any maintenance or safety issues that may have been overlooked or put off in the past.
Here are some resolution ideas to consider for your home in the new year:
Conduct a home safety audit
Go through your home and make a list of any potential hazards. This could include things like broken railings, loose floorboards, or outdated electrical outlets. Take the time to fix or address any issues you identify to ensure that your home is as safe as possible.
Create a home maintenance schedule
It can be easy to forget about regular maintenance tasks, such as changing the furnace filter or cleaning the gutters. Create a schedule for yourself or your family to help you stay on track with these important tasks.
Upgrade your home security
If you don’t already have a home security system in place, consider installing one in the new year. You can choose from a range of options, including security cameras, alarms, and smart home devices that can alert you to any potential threats.
Get your home organized
Clutter can not only be an eyesore, but it can also be a safety hazard. Make a resolution to declutter and organize your home to create a more efficient and safe living space.
Save energy and reduce your carbon footprint
There are a number of ways you can make your home more energy efficient in the new year. This could include installing energy-efficient appliances, sealing drafts and gaps in your home’s insulation, or investing in a home solar panel system.
Schedule an annual maintenance inspection
Home inspections are not – and should not be – confined to only when you purchase or build a new home. Getting an annual maintenance inspection scheduled is a smart way to make sure that all of the systems in your home are properly functioning, and have an understanding of their remaining lifespan so that you can budget for any future replacements.
By taking the time to address these issues, you can not only make your home safer and more efficient, but you can also save money on repairs and energy bills in the long run. Happy New Year!
