Some New Year's resolutions are difficult to keep when it comes to personal goals, but why not try to ring in the new year with some resolutions to help your home? Make a New Year's resolution to perform a simple evaluation and regular maintenance of your heating and cooling systems. Even minor problems with your heating and cooling systems can raise your utility bills. You can keep your new Year's resolution to lose weight with an effort to de-clutter rooms and closets. With a little resolve, you and your home will start the New Year off right.
