Did you know that the temperature, indoor air quality, and lighting in your home can have a significant impact on your comfort and health? Continue reading for a few remodeling tips that will help to make your home healthy and comfortable.
Mold can be dangerous to your health, so it’s vital to weatherproof your walls to keep moisture out. If you want your home to last for a long time with no mold damage, it’s crucial to ensure your siding, roofing, and windows are all weatherproofed by a professional. If you find mold in your home, it may require an exterior remodel, as mold is often caused by rain or snow dripping into the interior.
Indoor air quality can have a significant effect on your comfort and health, and it is essential for all homeowners to check their air quality regularly. If your home is not sealed correctly, the air from the crawlspace (which is often filled with various kinds of debris) can infiltrate your home and cause health problems. A heat recovery ventilation system may be helpful for improving air quality, as it takes the air from outside, filters it, puts it back into the HVAC system, and pushes fresh air throughout your house.
For older homes, it’s crucial to remodel old windows that no longer work properly. Old wooden windows are likely rotten, and allow air to escape in and out of your home. Windows should keep your house insulated, or else they will cost you in heating and cooling bills. Replacing old windows with new, energy-efficient windows will not only add value to your home, but they are also much more cost-effective and help to maintain a comfortable temperature.
The type of lighting in your home makes a big difference, as fluorescent lights and harsh spotlights can be too powerful and cause headaches. By adding various elements such as pendant lights, under cabinet lighting in your kitchen, or overhead lighting, you can create a much more comfortable environment that offers different lighting options for your mood.
