I like to tackle a thorough cleaning of my home during the middle of winter! In the Springtime, there is way too much to do outdoors.
In the middle of December, the temperature in Lee’s Summit is properly in the teens… Because of the frigid frigid weather and snow, I am properly kept inside for six straight months. It’s the perfect opportunity to transport furniture around, empty cupboards, organize closets and launder all of the linens. I scrub the tubs, toilets, baseboards and even the light fixtures. It’s a easily satisfying process and gives me the opportunity to make minor repairs and updates. This past winter, when I climbed on the ladder to scrub the ceiling light in the residing room, I instantly started to sweat. I realized that the temperature near the ceiling was multiple degrees higher than near the floor. The heating system was running just about constantly and using a tremendous amount of energy, because the heat was rising straight up, since the air was only falling down to floor level once it cooled off, higher temperature control settings were necessary. I decided to install ceiling fans. There is a nearly endless selection of options, with all strange styles, sizes and prices available. I was able to match the decor of the particular rooms and install the modern fixtures myself. In the winter, the fans rotate clockwise to create an updraft and circulate hot air more evenly throughout the room. I reverse fan direction in the summer time to supply a downdraft that creates a cooling effect. The fans are improving comfort and saving me currency on my heating bills.
