2022 New Year Resolutions for the Home

A new year brings with it both significant and little changes. People all across the world are looking to improve themselves, acquire a new skill, or save money for a big purchase. We propose updating your home security if you want to take care of yourself while also protecting your money.
Accidents in the home can endanger your and your family’s safety while also costing you a lot of money.
By addressing possible problems early on, you may spare yourself a lot of heartache in the long term. Here are some easy ways to make your house a happier and healthier place in 2022.

Examine your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
Now is a good time to double-check that you have the correct detectors in the correct locations and that their batteries are fully charged. A working smoke alarm might be the difference between a few hundred dollars and tens of thousands of dollars in property damage. Additionally, it has the ability to save your life.

CO detectors operate in the same manner. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas, so unless you have a working carbon monoxide detector, you won’t know it’s there.

Maintain a High Level of Air Quality
Dirty air can aggravate allergies and asthmatic symptoms. Make it a habit to dust your home on a regular basis. Your air ducts should be professionally checked and cleaned every 3 to 5 years by a NADCA certified member. If you still have a lot of dust in your residence and/or the air seems heavy, consider installing an air purifier.


Your Dryer’s Vents Should Be Cleaned
Dryer fires are a common cause of home fires. It’s often as simple as a flaming lint trap. Make sure to clean your lint filter after each load of laundry. Nonetheless, lint builds up in your dryer vents over time.
