forcing new dynamic ip address

I have a "home service" account from my ISP. The ISP issues an dynamic
ip address which has not changed in 12 years.
My host has 2 NICs, one which is not used. I know if I plug the internet
cable into the un-used NIC and make the appropriate config changes and
reboot I will get a different dynamic ip address.
Is there a simpler way to expire the lease to force the ISP dhcp to
refresh with a different dynamic ip address?
The goal is to have a cron job that gets a different dynamic ip address
assigned to my host's front door every a week.
Just another level of security to make it very hard for the script
kiddies from finding any open ports I may have.
Thanks for the help.
