Home Improvement During the Holidays
Holidays Are Right Around The Corner
When we think of the holidays, we automatically think about lists. There is a list for everything. So, after we cross everything off on everyone else’s list, there is rarely time left over for your holiday home improvement to-do list. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Finding time during your holiday break to make some improvements is possible, you just have to pick the right projects.
Here are a few projects that can be done quickly and on your own, before or after the holiday season craziness.
Holiday Home Improvement To-Do List
- Install a smart thermostat
Smart thermostats reduce your energy costs, learn your behaviors, and allow you easy access to adjust things when you’re not at home. If you have an older thermostat that you need to manually change, consider upgrading to a smart one. Most smart thermostats can be installed by you in about an hour, and also come with an application you can download directly to your cell phone.
- Install an energy-efficient appliance
Need a new washer and dryer? How does a new dishwasher sound? While you might not have made it out on Black Friday, there are plenty of great deals on appliances these days and it might be a great opportunity to make your home more efficient. New appliances never seem to be necessary until your old one quits on you, but if you are looking to make your home more efficient, the holidays are a great time to take advantage of some great prices. Plus, now that you have a few days off, maybe you can install it yourself!
- Clean out your closets
Tis’ the season for giving, and once you clean out a closet or two, you’ll have plenty to give. A great holiday chore is to tackle your home’s closets. It may seem like a daunting task, but one that can be done in an afternoon, if you put your mind to it.
