Autumn Home Improvements III

blog wreathReplace Indoor and Outdoor Lighting
As the evenings become longer and the cold winter dreary weather approaches, a project that includes updating both indoor and outdoor lighting can provide an inviting environment and if energy saving lighting is used can save energy. Upgrade your house to CFL light bulbs. This can be done at any time during the year, but it is especially helpful to reduce energy costs in the fall.

Install Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Some cities require a smoke detector in every room. Buy extra smoke detector batteries and change them
when daylight savings ends. Install a carbon monoxide detector near your furnace and water heater. Test all of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they work. Buy a fire extinguisher or replace any that is more than 10 years old.

Paint Interior Rooms
As summer comes to an end and you start to spend more time indoors, the new appearance, as well as a warmer, inviting feeling of a fresh coat of paint will help to push off those dreaded winter blues. Add a touch of  color and brightness.
