In this blog post we will talk about 7 ways to make your home more comfortable with simple tips that cost little or nothing!

The last tip is installing an air purifier for cleaner healthier air. This may cost more upfront but will save money on doctor visits down the line. Air purifiers make a great addition to any home and can be installed in most small spaces.
The heat outside is unbearable and it's only going to get hotter. The last thing you want to do is be inside a hot house all day long, but what can you do? Luckily for you, there are many ways that an air conditioner can come in handy during the summer months. For starters, an air conditioner will cool down your home by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit in just 10 minutes. In addition to cooling down your home quickly, an air conditioner also has other benefits such as reducing humidity and improving indoor air quality. A properly maintained AC unit should last between 12-15 years with little need for repairs or replacement parts.
It's the end of summer and a time when days start to get shorter. Days are getting cooler, leaves are changing colors, and there is less sunlight in your home during the morning hours. You might be wondering whether or not you should take down your curtains or drapes from the windows for winter. The answer is that it depends on what type of light you want to let into your home during those early morning hours: natural vs artificial light. If you prefer natural light then hang up your curtains so they block out any artificial lights coming from street lamps or inside buildings which can create an unwanted glare on surfaces such as furniture and floors. If you're looking for more brightness in the mornings then try using blinds to filter sunlight.
