Witches, ghosts, and zombies are just a few things that might scare you this Halloween. What shouldn’t scare you during this spooky season is your home projects. If your Pinterest board is giving you the creeps, try out one of these not so scary home projects instead!

Fired up!

Get your fireplace fall and winter-ready! A professional inspection is recommended at least once a year to remove any buildup in your fireplace and chimney. Checking to make sure there is no debris or loose tree limbs around the chimney and chimney cap will help prevent any fire hazards. So get it checked and stock up on wood to stay warm and cozy all winter long!

Front and Center

Giving your front door a fresh new look this fall won’t only attract those trick or treaters but according to Forbes, painting your front door can reward with you a hefty return of investment! Using the ColorSnap tool can help you find the right color that will be sure to make your front porch stand out.

Switch to Save

Changing the direction of your ceiling fans from counter-clockwise in the summer, to clockwise in the winter will save you money on your energy bill. Most fans have a simple switch to change directions, which makes this project super easy!

Clean those Gutters

Keeping your gutters clean is very important in keeping the landscaping and siding of your house free of damage. Taking the time to clean out any debris before rain and snow comes around could save you lots of money in the long run. (Trick: While you’re up there, scan the roof for any damage that may need repaired before winter!)
