Home improvement projects don’t have to be difficult.  Here are a few easy home improvement tips to get you on your way to feeling productive and ready to tackle those easy home improvements!

Make a Task List

Begin by making a list of things that you want to accomplish with your home improvements. There are those tasks that really need to be done like cleaning the dryer vent. Put the “must do” types of tasks first. Once you have completed that list, you can then add the other tasks like changing locks and light switches. These are the tasks that you can do when the “must” list is completed. There is no reason to have to rush through either one of the lists. Take your time and complete each project correctly. Spending a little extra time on each project will save you money in the long run.

Install a New Thermostat In Your Home

Are you wanting to change the thermostat in your home over to a newer concept? If you are then this project is perfect for you! There are so many smart home devices out there on the market now that you can literally spend hours and days trying to decide on the best thermostat. One of the best ones available is the Nest Thermostat. This new thermostat can do so many things like work on voice command, lower humidity, and save you money on both cooling and heating.

Having the ability to control the thermostat with your voice is exciting and makes life easier. With the incorporation of home hubs like Google Home and Alexa by Amazon all you must do is give the command and your thermostat is taken care of. How easy is that? Sitting in your comfy chair and giving the command to turn the heat up or down is quite the luxury.

If the Nest Thermostat is positioned where the sun hits it directly all you must do is turn on the sun block and your temperature will not waiver. Having the ability to use the sun block feature will save you money and your home temperature will remain where is supposed to be.

Using the Airwave feature will turn the compressor off when the room has reached the proper temperature. Once the compressor has been turned off Airwave will circulate the air in the room to keep it cool and comfortable. Having this is your home will save you a vast amount of money in the long run.

The ability to control the humidity level in your home is heaven sent. If you live in an area where the humidity gets very high, you know how this can affect everything including our electronics. The Nest Thermostat can be set to control the humidity level within your home. By using the Cool/Dry settings, you can set it at the level where you and your loved ones are comfortable.

Ugly Light Switches

Light switches can be replaced with sleek features that will add to the look of any room. There are wall controls that are easy to install, and you will be amazed at how little time and money it takes!
