3 New Year Resolutions For Your Home That Will Make Your New Home More Efficient
The thing about making New Year’s resolutions: if you make them too ambitious you may throw in the towel rather quickly. Set the standard too low, and they end up being too disposable to mean anything. We have found three simple and money-saving resolutions for your home, and we’ve set out to make you accountable for yourself!
Install a wifi-programmable thermostat.
One great thing about building with VE Homes is that we are focused on staying on top of the latest and greatest technology. With the purchase of one of our new construction homes, we recommend adding a wifi-programmable thermostat. Why? It’s great on your bill and great on the environment. Give your brand new home some extra love with the best technology by installing a smart thermostat in 2017.
For every new item that you purchase and bring into your house, vow to donate an existing older item that you no longer need or use. The benefit? Less clutter for your home in the long run and you are helping someone else that may be in need!
Check smoke detectors, fire-extinguishers, and carbon monoxide detectors.
An easy way to protect your family and your new investment of a newly built home from damage is to check all of your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors often and have extra batteries on hand. You may also want to invest in a few fire extinguishers to keep handy in the kitchen, garage and outside living areas. Better safe than sorry when planning your new home safety plan.
Have a wonderful New Year and much happiness and success in planning your New Year’s Resolutions!
