Ah yes, the New Year; too often does it present a plethora of opportunities that we just let slip through our fingers. Whether your resolutions are focused on making the most of life or attending one of the UK’s exhilarating festivals, chances are they will only make it to March.
You see, though we may stay clear-headed for a few months into the New Year, we often get pulled left, right and centre by life, therefore losing sight of the resolutions we worked so hard to think up.
So, instead of devoting your time to year-long resolutions, why not pick one or two that can be achieved within the first few months? Say, electrical resolutions for example?
We all know how it is; we spend weekend after weekend thinking ‘I’ll get around to that tomorrow’, but tomorrow never comes. So, this year, let’s all make a conscious effort to accomplish our resolutions by March.
In this article from SnDelectrical, we will take a look at just three electrical New Year’s resolutions you can implement to improve your home and its security. After all, our homes deserve a little TLC too!
I Will Switch to Energy-Efficient Bulbs
As pretty as it may be, the costs associated with lighting a home can leave us a little out of pocket, especially when finances are tight as it is. So, instead of allowing yourself to fret month after month, why not switch to energy-efficient bulbs? This will keep costs low and offer the same amount of illumination as a normal bulb. Whilst they may be a little more expensive upfront, they are a worthwhile investment for any homeowner looking to save the pennies and pounds.
A great example of energy-efficiency is LED lighting. It looks fantastic, all the while being versatile and cost-effective, making it a winner.
I Will Install an Extractor Fan
Have you noticed your walls turning a funny colour? This could be due to the excessive amount of moisture in the air. This may also lead to mould growth, which in turn results in pricey repair costs. Luckily though, there is a way to stop it ever getting this far, and that is to install an extractor fan. These handy little features simply remove steam and other forms of moisture from the air, before it has a chance to cause irreversible damage. The best place to install an extractor fan is in the bathroom or kitchen; two places where the room can get incredibly steamy.

I Will Improve Security
No one ever imagines their home being broken into, but sadly it is a harsh reality that so many homeowners face every year, even those who live in relatively safe neighbourhoods. So, what can we do to help deter thieves and protect your home?
Security cameras are a great way to deter criminals, as well as increase your chances of catching the culprit if you do experience a break-in. Today, they are becoming more and more popular, and they are fairly cheap to purchase too, making them ideal for all homeowners, even those on a budget.
