Warm weather has arrived and you have caught the home improvement bug. Whether you desire a cooler or more secure home, you can achieve your goals with these simple projects:

1. Smart Home Devices

The wrong thermostat will either cause your energy bills to skyrocket during the summer months or leave your home feeling unbearably hot when you return after a long day at work. Programmable thermostats can ease this problem to some extent, but a smart system such as Nest is even better, as it learns your habits and adjusts automatically based on your personal preferences.

2. Energy-Efficient Windows

Summer heat can lead not only to personal discomfort, but also astronomical energy bills as you crank up the air conditioning. Energy-efficient windows keep your home cooler during the summer and warmer as winter approaches. In addition to reducing your energy bill, you can reap the financial rewards with the help of tax credits designed to promote eco-friendly homes.

3. Add a Skylight

Let the natural light of summer into your home with the help of a skylight. As with windows, energy-efficient options are available, and some skylights even come accompanied by significant tax credits.

4. Install Ceiling Fans

On the hunt for a simple and effective way to keep your home cool without using the air conditioner? Consider installing ceiling fans, which circulate air and keep your home’s interior feeling fresh. The ideal fan will mix fashion and function, thereby serving as both decor and an effective cooling system. Many new ceiling fan systems include wireless integration, which allows for easy smartphone-based control.

5. Home Security DIY Camera

From weekend trips to the cabin to longer vacations abroad, summer is the perfect time for travel. However, it’s tough to relax when you’re worried about whether your home is safe and secure. Ease those fears with a home security camera from MyFox. This easy-to-install camera will help you keep an eye on things back home, thereby giving you valuable peace of mind. Smartphone integration makes it easy to control the camera; simply give your phone a tap when you want the shutter open.

  2. Next week, I am going to be starting on my home remodeling project and I have yet to even consider having a skylight put in.
