Why Air Filter Subscriptions Are a Must for Homeowners!

Why Air Filter Subscriptions Are a Must for Homeowners!

When was the last time you changed your home’s air filters? If you have to think about it, it’s probably been too long. Regularly replacing your home’s air filters is a crucial step to maintaining personal health as well as the health of your home’s HVAC system. Let’s be honest. It’s hard to remember to do something you only need to do a few times a year. That’s why subscribing to an air filter subscription service, like Second Nature, is a must for homeowners. Let’s dive into some of the benefits of having filters sent right to your door when it’s time for a change by subscribing to an air filter subscription service that gives you access to the best air filter for home use.  

First, Let’s Start With Why

Replacing your air filters is crucial to ensuring a healthy home. Cooking, cleaning, and even just moving around your home or interacting with your pets can release tiny pollutant particles into the air. By replacing your filters on time, you’re maximizing the air quality within your home. 

You may think that because you keep your home nice and clean, your air quality must be clean as well. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Your home’s HVAC system and air filters will collect pollutants like skin cells, pet dander, and even hazardous particles from household cleaning products, hair products, and nail polish. They build up faster than you think and replacing your air filter is a great way to ensure your family is breathing clean air. 

Save Time

Like any other subscription service out there, Second Nature filters will save you time and money. How? Let us paint you a picture. It’s Sunday afternoon, and you’ve decided that after 12 months, it’s time to change your air filters. You get in your car, head over to your local hardware store, and walk to the air filter aisle only to have no idea what sizes you need. Now you have to go back to your car, drive home, measure your filters, then drive back to the hardware store and back home. Before you know it, you’ve spent three hours on a task that really shouldn’t take more than a few minutes! With Second Nature, you get the best air filter for home use delivered automatically when it’s time to replace them, and you only have to  the size you need once!

Save Money

Over time air filters build up dust and become clogged. When your filters become clogged, your HVAC system is at serious risk of damage from overheating. Over time, your HVAC system can become clogged from a combination of moisture and dust that air filters can prevent. To avoid costly repairs to your heating and cooling system, replace your air filters on time. 

How Often?

Changing your air filters will depend on various factors like the number of pets you have, activity level, and more. You can choose to get your second nature filters shipped on a custom schedule to make sure you’re breathing the best air. We recommend changing your filters every three months or every two months if you have a pet. If you have more than one furry pet, replace your air filters every 30 days. With timed delivery, new filters show up at your door right when it’s time to change them. Keeping your home’s air quality healthy and your HVAC system running optimally.


One of the great things about choosing Second Nature filters is their wide variety of inventory. Second Nature has a filter for every size and shape, making them one of the best air filter subscription services available. What’s even better is their pricing options. They categorize their filters by how much they can trap.Let’s take a look.

New Home Check-List

New Home Checklist 

Buying a new home is an exciting and frustrating process. It’s easy to get lost in the joy of closing that new home deal. We’ve compiled a list that will help you identify what to know and prepare for with your new home, allowing you to enjoy that new home high without forgetting to prepare yourself for any mishaps down the road. Let’s dive in! 

Locate circuit breakers 

Circuit breakers play a more important role than people realize. How do circuit breakers work? To put it simply, they cut power to your appliances when there’s too much current flowing through them. Without circuit breakers, homes across the country would experience regular electrical issues. We’re talking about fire-level electrical issues. So, yeah, they’re important. In the case that your circuit breaker has to step in and save your home, you’ll need to know where they are located to bring power back to your appliances. After you locate your circuit breaker, or breakers if your home has more than one, we suggest writing down the location or creating a map that clearly labels where you can find them. After you’ve done that, consider using a magnet and placing it on your fridge. Pro tip: make sure the areas in front of and below your circuit breaker are free of clutter and easily accessible. It’s also a good idea to label your circuit breaker. If your breaker box doesn’t have a space for labels, you can use duct tape and a sharpie to mark which switch connects to which room.

Know where your GFCI outlets are and how they work

Think of CFCI outlets as mini circuit breakers. Osha describes a GFCI, or ground-fault circuit interrupter, as “a fast-acting circuit breaker designed to shut off electric power within as little as 1/40 of a second. It works by comparing the amount of current going to and returning from equipment along the circuit conductors. When the amount going differs from the amount returning by approximately five milliamperes, the GFCI interrupts the current.” So when you’re drying your hair and you draw a little too much electricity, your GFCI outlet steps in and saves the day before any damage is done. Here are some places you’re likely to find GFCI outlets:

  • The exterior of your home
  • Bathrooms
  • Garage
  • Kitchen

Over the years, new regulations have required more and more GFCI electrical outlets within new homes. So don’t be alarmed if your new home has more or less than your previous home. GFCI outlets are a simple install for most electricians if you’re interested in adding them to your home. If you want to ensure your home is safe, try to use your GFCI outlets over your non GFCI outlets.

Locate gas and water valves

Locating your water and gas shut-off valves is another critical step to take after closing on your new home. In fact, every member of your household should know where these shut-off valves are. In the event of a busted gas or water pipe, every second wasted locating the shut-off valves could mean thousands of dollars more in damage. Consider creating a map similar to the one you make for your circuit breaker. Store them in the same spot to ensure no extra time is wasted in the event of an emergency. 

Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors 

It’s always a good idea to replace the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your new home. After that, make sure you replace the smoke detector batteries yearly and the carbon monoxide detector batteries every 6 months, as suggested by FEMA. We recommend setting aside a stash of batteries to be used only for these devices.

Identify your storm shelter and plan

Everywhere in the United States experiences some form of bad weather. Make sure you have identified a shelter in the case of high winds or a tornado. Try to keep the area clutter-free and easily accessible. Here are some items you can store in your shelter location for safety:

  • Food
  • Water
  • Radio
  • Flashlights
  • Dry clothes
  • Pet food & leashes

You likely never need to use these items, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Be sure to research the climate in your new area and tailor your shelter and supplies storage to cover any form of bad weather or natural disasters that you could realistically expect.

Create a seasonal home maintenance checklist 

Creating a home maintenance checklist is crucial! Regular maintenance will keep your home in good shape and help maintain value. Don’t slouch on completing seasonal maintenance like cleaning the gutters, landscaping, and pool maintenance. Also, don’t forget to winterize your home when the time comes. Covering up faucets and sealing window and door cracks are just two ways you can prepare your home for the cold weather. Take care of your home, and your home will take care of you!

Make a list of home improvement projects

After you’ve tackled everything on this checklist, you’re ready for a new project! Take a walk around your home and make a list of home improvement projects you want to do like replacing countertops or flooring. Prioritize them by need and doability to figure out which projects you need to budget for first.

9 Simple Ways to Transform Your Garage in Your New Home

utility concierge services

The typical home garage is designed with one key purpose in mind: To protect vehicles. While most garages provide adequate protection for vehicles, they offer little in the way of comfort, utility, or an inviting appearance. Many have a dull concrete floor, poor lighting, and bare walls. They rarely feature any type of built-in storage and are often unbearably hot or freezing cold depending on the weather.

The good news is that you can easily transform your cold, drab garage into a neat, attractive space to store your possessions. Best of all, you can turn your garage into one of the brightest and most organized areas of your home while spending little in the way of time or money. Below are nine ways to transform your garage in your new home.

1) Apply Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy can be a difference-maker for your garage floor. In addition to enhancing the appearance of a drab concrete floor, the protective properties of epoxy can add years to the life of your garage floors. Here are just a few of the many benefits of installing epoxy flooring in your garage:

  • Cost-effective: You can make it an inexpensive DIY project with a kit from amazon or find a contractor to do it for you.  
  • A strong, protective finish: Epoxy’s strength and durability enable it to protect your floors while being highly resistant to staining. 
  • Choose from a variety of colors: From earth tones to bold, vivid colors, you can choose from a host of different colors for your garage.
  • Minimize flaws and defects: Epoxy coatings have a smooth finish that hides flaws and imperfections that often exist in older garage floors.
  • An eco-friendly choice: Epoxy coatings require little in the way of raw materials and last for years, thereby preserving resources.

2) Install Garage Shelving

The path to a neat, organized garage begins with organized storage space. Installing shelving in your garage is one of the best ways to maximize space and minimize clutter in your garage. Garage shelving also enables you to make use of space on higher sections of your garage walls. Advantages of garage shelving include the following:

  • Protection: Storing your belongings on shelves keeps them off the floor where they are more vulnerable to moisture and pests.
  • A wide selection of materials: You can choose from prefabricated shelving, metal racks, wooden shelves, plastic shelving, and other options.
  • Many shapes, sizes, and colors: Depending on your storage needs and garage space, you can select shelves that are small, large, narrow, or wide.
  • Aesthetically pleasing: Shelves help keep your garage free of clutter and presentable to visitors. 

3) Stock Up on Storage Boxes

Once you have your shelves in place, you can begin filling them with your possessions. Storage boxes can be easily stored on garage shelves and can help you maximize space by enabling you to stack them. Here are a few tips to help you keep your boxes organized:

  • Stack according to need and accessibility: Place boxes containing rarely used items on the highest shelves or on the bottom of a large stack.
  • Label each box: You can avoid a lot of searching and frustration by labeling the contents of each box. Remember to leave the label facing out.
  • Consider plastic storage bins: If your new home is in a humid area or prone to pest infestations, you may wish to switch over to plastic bins.

4) Mount Garage Hooks

Garage hooks provide a convenient way to organize a variety of items. They are available at most department stores and hardware stores, and are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors to accommodate your tools and garage space. Prices start at just a few dollars for smaller hooks and the majority of models can be installed in a matter of minutes. 

5) Store All Your Tools in a Tool Chest

Few things are more frustrating than needing a hammer or screwdriver and being unable to find it. Homeowners are not always the best about keeping their tools organized and properly stored. They may use kitchen drawers, mudroom cubbies, or laundry room shelves as storage spaces, which can make tools difficult to track down when they are needed in the future. A tool chest eliminates these pitfalls while offering the following benefits:

  • A central solution: A tool chest provides a single location for all your tools so you know exactly where to go to find them.
  • Protection: Many of today’s tool chests have a locking mechanism to help keep high ticket tools safe and secure.
  • Organization: Tool chests often feature small bins and drawers for key accessories and components such as drill bits and nails.

6) Invest in an Air Compressor

Driving a vehicle with tires that aren’t properly inflated is dangerous and can affect your vehicle’s performance. But it’s not uncommon for drivers to head out the door anyway and pay to put air in their tires at the nearest gas station. Once you invest in an air compressor, you don’t have to worry about taking this risk. Investing in an air compressor for your garage offers the following advantages:

  • Utility: You can easily fill the tires on your vehicles, trailers, ATVs, motorcycles, and bikes to keep them ready for use on the road.
  • Cost savings: You can avoid paying the fees that many gas and service stations charge to use their public air compressors.
  • A small footprint: Advances in technology enable compressors to accomplish more with a smaller footprint, using little garage space.

7) Update Your Garage Lighting

Your gorgeous updated garage will look even better once you improve your outdated lighting. Many garages still have their original lighting sources, which often use incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. This type of lighting is inefficient and costly, as bulbs need to be replaced frequently. Incandescent bulbs also emit a lot of heat, which can make them difficult to work under. Switching to LED lighting offers long-term cost savings, as well as the following advantages:

  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Enhanced visibility
  • Cooler lighting
  • Adjustable

8) Boost Your Comfort with a Heater or Fan

Now that your garage is starting to look great from top to bottom, it’s time to make it feel great. This is especially important if you live in an area marked by extreme temperatures or seasonal fluctuations. Today’s best garage heaters are portable, low-maintenance, and affordable, with prices starting just over $100. You can expect to pay a bit more for systems that offer both heating and cooling properties, but you can conserve space in your garage by investing in an all-in-one unit.

9) Mount a Retractable Extension Cord

Retractable extension cords are an especially welcome addition for homeowners who would like to use their garage to complete woodworking projects or restore vehicles. You can find models that sell in the $100 range, though some models with optional features may cost more. Here are some benefits of retractable extension cords:

  • Easy to mount: Most people can mount a retractable extension cord quickly and easily on their own. You can even find videos online.
  • A hassle-free design: A retractable cord eliminates the hassle of gathering, coiling, and storing long cords each time you use them.
  • Fast access to power: With a retractable extension cord, you can have access to power from any location in your garage.

Final Thoughts 

By introducing the changes above, you can make the most of your new home’s garage without breaking the bank. But don’t forget the importance of maintaining your garage. Set aside one or two days per year to walk through your garage and do the following:

  • Declutter: Remove old boxes, broken tools, and unused items from your shelves to create space.
  • Clean your floors: You can keep your epoxy floors looking like new by cleaning them with a solution of ammonia and warm water.
  • Take inventory of your tools: Go through your tool chest at least once each year to make sure all of your tools are present and intact.

Keeping your garage neat, clean, and organized doesn’t have to be difficult or costly. By starting off on the right foot when you move into your new home, you can turn your garage into the best-kept space on your property. 

How A Home Automation App Can Change The Way You Live  

Picture this… You just crawled into bed with your favorite book and you’ve got your pillows in just the right spot. Then, moments later, you realize you left the heater on too high of a setting and forgot to turn the lights off downstairs. Now you have to get up, adjust the heater and walk back upstairs only to attempt to find that peace and comfort you had achieved only moments before. It’s a common occurrence across the country, but it doesn’t have to be. Home automation is now more common, and more affordable, than ever before. 

While home automation once seemed like something straight out of Star Trek or another Sci-Fi series, recent years have seen astounding technological advances that have begun to fundamentally alter the way things work in our homes. 

Essentially, home automation refers to devices, appliances, and systems that connect and can be controlled remotely. When you bring the technology in your home together through a central network, this is often referred to as a “connected home.” For instance, home automation can allow you to connect your home’s thermostat, locks, TVs, and even your appliances to the internet, allowing you to control all of these devices from a central hub in your home, or even from a home automation app on your smartphone. 


Let’s take a look at how home automation can change the way you live!


Manage All of Your Devices From One Location

Perhaps the greatest benefit that smart home automation provides is the ability to control all of your devices from one location. That’s right. No more headaches from losing all of those remotes that just seem to always find their way in between the cushions. Smart devices allow you to connect to, and control, your gadgets and appliances wirelessly from your phone, removing the need for additional cords and controllers. 



We couldn’t understate the convenience of a home automation system if we wanted to. Imagine having control of your entire home at the palms of your hands. Forgot to lock the door? No problem. Left the light on downstairs? Turn it off with your phone. The list of convenient benefits remains endless! And remember, you can utilize these features from anywhere with an internet connection! Feel like checking in on your pets during the workday? No problem.

Increase Energy Efficiency

In addition to being convenient, home automation can also help to save you money. While home automation allows you to control devices and appliances throughout your home from your smartphone, making your daily life easier, these systems can also be controlled when you are out of the house. This gives you the freedom to check on systems in your home and alter their settings when you are on the go, saving you money on your energy bill.


In your hurry to get out of the house in the morning, you may forget to turn off your heater, the TV, or the coffee maker. Prior to home automation, these mistakes could end up costing you money. However, with home automation, you can check the status of these systems remotely wherever you are, and even get notifications when things are left on at odd hours. 


No More Fumbling for Keys

Home automation can also provide you with added security by allowing you to do away with traditional keys. Upgrading the locks around your home to smart locks can add convenience by allowing you to enter and exit your home without the need for a key, which can be copied or stolen. This means no more fumbling with keys when your hands are full of groceries, or worrying about how you will get inside if you forget your keys. As long as you have your phone with you, you will have the convenience of keyless access to your home. 


Upgrading to smart locks can also improve your home’s safety, as eliminating the need for a physical key makes it harder for people to break into your home. The fact is that keys are easy to misplace, and if you lose your key, you may have to replace your locks to prevent a break-in. With smart locks, you can forgo physical keys, allowing you to have one less thing to worry about. 



If you travel frequently and rely on friends and family to house sit, this often means creating multiple duplicate house keys to give to people, or leaving a key hidden somewhere where a burglar may find it. Neither option is perfect, as many people are uncomfortable having multiple copies of their house keys floating around. Fortunately, smart locks take the stress out of letting people house sit. You can simply create a temporary virtual key that your house sitters can use to access your home for a predetermined amount of time, and you will even be able to see when they enter and exit your home. For additional security when you are not at home, you can check to make sure that all of the doors have been locked when your house sitter leaves.  


Help for The Forgetful

If you often find yourself forgetting to close the garage door, lock the front door, or even turn off the oven when you leave the house, then home automation could benefit your safety and peace-of-mind. The fact is that when we are on the go, it is easy to forget things; however, there is nothing worse than the sense of dread one feels when they get to work only to realize that they did not secure their home properly. 


Instead of having to rush home on your lunch break, or call a neighbor to have them check on your home, you can use your home automation system to ensure everything is properly secured. From your phone, you can close your garage door, lock the front door, and turn off all the lights and appliances throughout your home. While you may discover that everything was already secure, home automation gives you peace-of-mind as it makes it easy for you to check on your home from wherever you are. 


Integrated Security System

Of course, no home automation system is complete without a modern home security system. However, while these systems used to be complicated and expensive to set up and maintain, these systems are now more affordable and user-friendly than ever before. These fully integrated home security systems can easily be accessed from your phone, allowing you to check security camera footage and arm/disarm the system remotely from wherever you are. You can easily check to see if the kids made it home from school or keep an eye on elderly family members. This gives you complete control over your home’s security. 

Worry-Free Vacations

By now, you have likely realized the many ways in which the smart features we have discussed could give you peace-of-mind when going out of town. Not only does home automation make it easy to let in house sitters, check your home’s security, and ensure that your HVAC system and appliances are off, but it also gives you the ability to create the illusion that you are home. With smart lighting and motorized window treatments, you can create the appearance of activity in your home throughout the day, which can help to deter potential burglars. When coupled with integrated home security systems, home automation helps to ensure that your home is safe, and you are able to relax when you go away on vacation. 


No longer considered to be a luxury for the rich and famous, home automation is truly revolutionizing the way people go about their daily routines. With properly integrated smart home technology, you can control systems throughout your home from a single device no matter where you are, giving homeowners access to convenience and security like never before. Feel free to contact us to learn more about how a home automation app could change the way you live as well as for advice on how to integrate smart technology into your home.
