Spring has sprung friends! I walked outside last week and saw my snowball bush was about to bloom, my grass is greener and growing and bees are hanging out around my flowers. I also ditched my jeans for shorts and a tank! With the changes outside come changes inside. Today I thought I’d share how to get your home ready for spring.
How to Get Your Home Ready for Spring:
- Open the windows – There’s nothing like opening the windows and getting some fresh air flowing through the house. I have two pups and my house can smell a little musty after a cold, long winter. Open windows get me in the mood for spring and air out my house at the same time!
- Get some flowers – A form of self-care for me is to buy some flowers. My favorite flowers are Gerber Daisies, so I like to put some on the kitchen table and next to my bed. It also helps brighten the house!
- Pull out and clean off the patio furniture – Last weekend I took all of my patio furniture and cushions out of storage. I washed the cushions, wiped down all the furniture and hosed off the patio area. It’s great getting the outdoor area set up and I enjoy sitting outside!
- Clean out the closets – This morning I switched out the clothes and shoes in my closet from winter to spring. It’s exciting seeing all the clothes you haven’t seen in a few months. I also cleaned out the hall closet, guest closet and my fridge. Nice having everything organized!
- Replace your home air filter– As a homeowner, I’m ashamed to say that I forget to replace my air filter. Since I have pets, I should be changing my air filter every 60 days. My husband also suffers from seasonal allergies so it’s important we switch it out often. When K&N Filters reached out and asked if I was interested in their new Lifetime Washable Home Air Filter, I looked to see how my current air filter was holding up. It was filthy, so I jumped at the chance to try something different.
Made from a pleated synthetic filter media, these air filters provide excellent filtration and dust capacity for long-life performance. They’re specially designed to help reduce contaminants in your home’s air, especially allergens and dust mites. Installing a washable, reusable air filter can help save you money over disposable filters— which must be frequently repurchased (approximately every 90 days in the average suburban home—and every 60 days or sooner if you have pets). Instead of fully replacing your filter several times a year, it makes sense to have one that you can simply wash and reinstall, using K&N’s Lifetime Washable Home Air Filter Cleaner.
My HVAC system is also older, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to replace it anytime soon. High airflow helps reduce HVAC system strain and requires less energy, which can translate to savings. When a filter becomes extremely clogged, airflow through the filter begins to slow, which can force an HVAC system to work harder to compensate. Rinsing and cleaning K&N’s Lifetime Washable Home Air Filter helps keep your HVAC system running smoothly without breaking the bank.
