The coronavirus has changed the way we have lived our day-to-day lives. And as we are all staying home more than we ever have, our homes are feeling the effects of this transition. Home strain, or the negative effects of constant use, is occurring in many appliances and devices in modern homes.
From kitchen appliances to home office tech, homeowners may be finding themselves having to schedule repair or maintenance appointments to help their tech keep up with their needs.
But thankfully, there are preventative steps people can take to make sure their home is running smoothly. Installing smart home appliances is one of the smallest and biggest changes that can be made, as they allow homeowners for more control over every aspect of their homes.
Devices like video doorbells and smart locks allow them to keep their home secure from anywhere. Meaning they can lock their backdoor or turn off their tvs no matter their location.
Other huge pluses to these types of home upgrades are the money-saving and environmental aspects. Things like water and gas monitors can alert you to accidentally left-on stovetops tops or pipe leaks. Things like this can save homeowners plenty of money by catching issues before they turn disastrous. But they can also help the environment as well, by preventing unnecessary waste of essential resources.
Other devices such as humidity sensors can track your home’s climate and make sure it stays at a proper temperature to prevent mould buildup or bursted pipes (both very expensive repairs if caught too late).
Interested in adding some of these devices to your home but worried about the installation? Don’t fret, as most of the items Hippo suggested below offer pain-free installation (and go easy on your wallet as well).
