Many of us like to tackle home improvement projects on the weekend. If you’re looking for something to do around the house, and the weather is permitting, consider the following projects. These easy weekend jobs can enhance your property as well as your family’s health.
1. Seal ventilation leaks: Houses with leaks and gaps are harder to keep cool than those that are tightly constructed. The hot air seeps in while the cool air conditioning rushes out, or cool winter air seeps in while expensive heat leaks out. Discover where you have leaks in the home (the most common spots are around the doors, windows and garage) and seal those leaks.
2. Improve your IAQ – Indoor air quality: This can make the difference between a healthy household and one that has danger lurking in the air. Recovery ventilators and air exchangers are roughly the same size as an air conditioner and offer constant filtration, humidity control and general home ventilation.
3. Install outdoor lighting: Sean says providing proper lighting can make walkways safer, add a layer of security and highlight your landscaping. Outdoor wall sconces, chandeliers, pendants, and path and post lights can also prolong the life of your outdoor party and instantly add to your home’s curb appeal.
