Home Tasks To Do This Year

AD | Collaborative post

I love the start of a new year! There is something so refreshing about it. Everyone has new goals and aspirations and it just seems like because of that, things are happier, healthier, and more lively. I could not be more excited to celebrate the beginning of a (hopefully) great year, but there is also a lot to be done over the next few weeks to prepare your home for the cool weather because with a new year, typically comes cooler weather. It’s funny because we are already in the heat of the cool weather season, but things do not really start getting really cool/cold until now. 

Because of their newly found goals and aspirations, a lot of people are too busy working out and making juices each morning that they forget about the everyday, necessary year-round tasks, like taking care of your home. This is very important because if you do not take care of your home, when you go to sell it, you will have to shell out a ton of time and money. That would definitely be unfortunate, wouldn’t it? I think so, at least. Here are a few home tasks that are essential to do once, twice, or even year-round that you need to think about, even with your big goals that you are trying to tackle in 2020:

Examine Your Roof

Examine your roof and make any fixes necessary. If you are planning on selling your home in the future, this is a huge perk for buyers, but it will also give you peace of mind all year round (but especially in the colder months that are coming your way!) because you want your home protected. If we get winter storms, you will want to make sure that you have a sturdy roof, in order to protect your home from cold weather, snow, and wind. Plus, getting a new roof or fixing your current roof will ensure that you will not have any leaks, which can be detrimental to your home.

Check Your Windows

New windows are another huge perk for buyers because it shows that they will most likely have lower utility bills because of them. But in addition to that, new windows will help keep you warm this winter and give your HVAC system a much-needed rest, in order to keep functioning properly for years to come. Thompson Creek says, “After a slow start to the winter season in many regions, Old Man Winter has made his presence known in both January and February. When the mercury drops and the cold winds start whipping, that cold air can find its way into your home. Any break in your home’s “envelope” – the outer shell of your home that protects its contents from the elements – is a prime source for air leakage. Of course, typically it’s the windows that account for the most surface area in your home’s envelope openings. And when you have old or inefficient windows, air leaks can make the temperatures inside your home uncomfortably chilly during the winter, not to mention the added wear and tear on your HVAC system as it struggles to maintain the thermostat temperature.”

Service Your Furnace

Servicing your furnace is huge – and much-needed. The worst possible situation (at least in my opinion) would be to have your furnace go out during a huge, cold snow storm. Yikes! Technicians would not be able to come out to inspect or fix it during the storm, so you would be stuck in the cold. If you have kids, this is absolutely necessary because you do not want them to be in the cold, especially now that it is flu and RSV season, as well. This is why I think it is essential to have it looked at before the cold weather hits. I could go on and on about how important this is.

Get Your Home Deep Cleaned Frequently

Recently, I have been very aware about how the space we are living in is pretty toxic. Did you know that the air quality INSIDE your home is typically worse than outside, even with all of the outdoor pollutants? Crazy, right? This is one of the many reasons why I believe that it’s very important to keep your home dust-free, in order to try to keep your home healthy for your family. The thing about this, however, is that you cannot use any cleaning service. Cleaning products have the potential to add to your toxic home, making it worse. This is why you will want to use a green cleaning service, such as Peach State Cleaning Service.
