7 Ways To Get Your Home Ready For Summer

As we inch closer and closer to summer barbecues and backyard parties, now is the perfect time to upgrade your house for entertaining. Here are 7 ways to get your home ready for summer.

1. Amp Up Your Landscape

Summertime in Northern Colorado is all about enjoying the great outdoors, so make sure your landscaping creates the perfect place for your friends, family, and guests to spend time. Refresh your yard with a new water feature, add outdoor speakers to connect to your sound system, or plant a garden to enjoy fresh produce and herbs.

2. Get Smart Sprinklers 

Smart sprinkler systems allow you to save both time and money by allowing you to easily control your watering system. And you can have the peace of mind that your system will automatically adjust the watering based on the weather, so you won’t have to worry about your sprinklers running through a rainstorm.

And if you have a garden to tend, try a smart drip irrigation system that can keep your plants, flowers, and produce healthy without you being a slave to the watering can.

3. Beautify Your Patio

To create a welcoming backyard that is perfect for entertaining, bring in some upgraded features that your guests are sure to enjoy. Add a smart gas grill to cook all of your burgers, steaks, and chicken breasts to just the right temperature.

And make sure you have comfortable chairs for people to sit in while you chat, play games, look at the stars, or enjoy dinner together.

4. Use Smart Lights Outdoors

While your family and friends are enjoying those dinners on your beautiful patio above your perfectly landscaped yard, make sure the party can continue after the sun goes down with your smart lighting. With the touch of a button, you can create the perfect mood lighting and even music for all of those summer nights.

5. Switch to a Smart Thermostat

Using a smart thermostat can keep your home perfectly comfortable, even on the hottest summer days. You can schedule it to run at certain times or you can use your smartphone to set the temperature whenever you’d like. It can even save you money on your energy bill so that you are only running your air conditioner when you are wanting to.

6. Upgrade Your Home Entertainment

Add a movie room to your home or upgrade the home theater room you already have with these ideas. Upgrade your DVR so your family can all save and watch their favorite shows whenever they’d like. Hook up a new video gaming console to the big screen for a great way to entertain teenagers and adults alike.

7. Benefit from an Air Purifier

Allergy sufferers will love being inside of your home with an air purifier giving them cleaner air to breathe easy. Choosing an air purifier that you can program allows you to set it on autopilot and know it is protecting your home based on the needs of your household.
