3 Spring Upgrades For Your Texas Home

With spring comes new life, a breath of fresh air, and a chance to do all of your favorite outdoor activities. Unfortunately, the freedom of spring doesn’t come without some concessions. Your Colleyville, Texas, home may need some updates to adequately guide you through the season of rebirth. Fortunately, you can make some plans to improve the comfort, value, and overall quality of your home during spring. Here are just a few tips to get you started.

Upgrade Your Thermostat

If you have a mercury-based thermostat or even an outdated digital one, it’s time to bring your home into the 21st century. That’s why you should consider a smart thermostat. These handy devices go beyond what a programmable thermostat can do, automatically adjusting to your usage, while giving you updates about when to change your filter or how you use your energy. At the end of the day, your home will become more comfortable than ever, and you’ll save tons of money on your energy bills.

Get Your Lawn Going

Your lawn may look perfect right now, but beneath the surface, weed seeds are looking to spring forth and decimate your hard work. Instead of waiting until you see weeds in your yard, beat them to the punch by spreading a pre-emergent fertilizer. Not only will this feed the grass, but it will also prevent crabgrass, dandelions, and clover from sprouting and ruining the plush, golf-course look of your front yard or backyard.

Replace Doors and Windows

Unless you’ve recently spent the money to upgrade your doors and windows, you’re probably letting cash seep right out of the cracks in your home. Old windows and doors aren’t capable of keeping cold air indoors, so they create gaps of heat in the home and an excessive energy bill. If you have the budget, buying Energy Star windows and doors keeps the heat out and the cold inside. It’s a sound investment no matter what.

Upgrading your home doesn’t have to become an outrageously expensive venture. Even the smallest touches make all the difference. If you’re searching for a professional to handle a thermostat installation or other HVAC work, call Airwise today at (817) 444-0090.
