Cash in on Some Home Improvements!
If you’re lucky enough to get a tax refund this season, the mere thought of that money is probably burning a hole in your pocket. But instead of using the extra cash on some frivolous purchase, consider investing in something more worthwhile—like your home! After all, home improvements are the best way to increase your property value and make your family happy at the end of each day.
If you’ve already invested in a new home furnace or furnace components, your wallet may be a bit light at the moment. But don’t worry! We have good news: Miller’s has seven great ideas for affordable home improvements that we’re sharing with you.
Seven Easy Ways to Improve Your Indoor Space
Whether you’re planning to put your house on the market and need some updates done quickly or you’re simply looking to improve your living space, we’ve got some easy, budget-friendly ideas that can make a huge difference.
- Refresh that paint.
Do you have a dull wall in your family room that you’re tired of looking at? Spice up your décor with a fresh coat of paint! Painting a room, even if it’s just one accent wall, is an easy way to brighten up a favorite space while also adding value to your home. Bold colors are especially eye-catching and will have you wondering why you didn’t do this sooner.
- Insulate the attic.
Stop throwing money out the window! A poorly insulated attic lets air escape and is a huge energy waster. Insulate your attic the right way and we guarantee you’ll enjoy better comfort in the winter and summer—not to mention lower energy bills.
- Get your HVAC system serviced.
There’s no better way to ensure your indoor comfort 24/7 than getting your HVAC serviced each spring and fall. Even better, sign up for a maintenance plan from Miller’s and you’re sure to secure your home’s comfort all year long.
- Replace cabinet hardware.
Bored with your kitchen but not able to afford an entire makeover? Switch out your cabinet hardware for a mini-fix. This affordable update will change the look of your kitchen without breaking the household budget.
- Replace an outdated appliance.
Nothing sucks up energy like an outdated appliance. Today’s modern appliances are sleek, energy-efficient and offer more capabilities than their older counterparts. Take that cash refund and treat yourself to a new fridge, oven, dryer or dishwasher!
- Invest in a smart thermostat.
Today’s smart thermostats were given their name for a reason. They truly are smart! A smart thermostat isn’t expensive to install and it can transform your lifestyle. Once it learns the patterns of when you’re home and away, this device will control your heating and cooling use and help you save a bundle on your energy costs. Bonus: You can control it from your smart phone.
- Add or replace a ceiling fan.
Like a new smart thermostat, adding a ceiling fan isn’t overly expensive. Plus, it’s an energy-efficient way to manage your indoor temperature. Using it during the summer will keep you cool and reversing the blades during the colder months will help contain heat! It’s a win-win!
