The link above to the Lennox Comfort Matters website has some great tips!
Spring was certainly in the air today, it’s almost time to open windows and let the fresh air in.
We’ve begun to “enjoy the beauty of spring inside” by painting our many rooms in our home! An instant fresh way to update our living space and personalize to “us”!
While preparing to paint, we removed the heating and return air grilles. This is something I’ve gotten into the habit of cleaning at least once a year… Thank goodness I do it that often, the return air grilles are pretty gross with dirt, dust, hair, dander :S
Spring is another good time to change the filter in your furnace!
Another thing my husband did was clean out the dishwasher, by unscrewing the food trap at the back… blech it was disgusting! But the dishwasher is working much better, means the dishes are getting cleaned properly saving water by not having to rewash!
If you’re thinking of ways to update your space, one option to consider is possibly opening up a wall to provide more open concept. This is something we also did and provides heat from the sunlight coming in our front window, now flows throughout our front entrance and living room now!
One other tip I’m continuing to work at, it seems to be an ongoing battle, decluttering!
Let’s hope the Spring warm weather truly is on the way, if we get our Spring Cleaning done before all the snow melts, it’s more time to enjoy the outdoors!
