This Summer Don’t Forget These Items For Your House



This Summer Don't Forget These Items For Your House
google news

As we come closer and closer to the summer, most of us are thinking about the things that we are going to need in our houses to stay safe, stay cool and keep the sweltering heat out. There are various ideas that you can incorporate into your summer renovation strategy so that you can ensure all these things. Depending on your budget, your house’s current situation, and your needs you can do all or some of those things to keep your house up to date. These ideas can be implemented on the inside or you can consider some ideas that we are going to share with you for your house’s exterior.

Planning for your renovation

Before you do anything else, you have to come up with a game plan for your summer needs. This plan will have to include three major elements. Once you have these things in mind, you can easily make an informed decision and choose what you want and what you can live without.

Do it yourself or hire a contractor

Almost all of us like to do these projects ourselves. The important thing to do here is to find out if we can do it with the finesse that expert contractors can show and can we do it in the time that we have set aside for it. Also, keep in mind that if there is any complication, you might have to do it all over again which will cost you time and money.

What you can do is to take the simpler tasks for yourself and leave everything else for the contractors who have done this before so they know exactly how to do it in minimum time and without making a mess.

What Can Be Done?

Summer is the perfect time to get started on renewing the look and feel of your house and improving it. You can give your house a makeover that you were looking for. If you think it’s going to take a long time, leave it for the contractors and go about your business.

1. Get Some Shades

Summers can be quite a hot season with the sun scorching right above our house. It is usually advised that we should keep ourselves and our houses protected from the blazing sun. In order to have a proper shade in either the backyard, front yard, or even over the pool area it is highly suggested that one should get commercial shade sails to keep your house’s temperature cool. They are highly proficient at keeping the scorching sun at bay while you enjoy the summers in your house.

2. Spruce up The Exterior

One of the things that you can do to upgrade the look of your house is to have it painted. Not only will it add to the aesthetics of it, but it will also increase the value of your house. In case you decide to sell it, you can get more for a beautifully painted house than a house that has paint coming off the walls. Now, this is a big project and we will suggest that you get expert painters to do it for you. Just make sure that they are lead-free certified contractors. Show them your house and find out the expenses that you will incur. Ask them how long it will take them so that you can plan your days accordingly. You can pick out warm and inviting colours.

3. Enhance the Landscaping

Another way that you can add to your house’s curb appeal is landscaping. It doesn’t take a lot of time and the reward that you get out of it is amazing. Sprucing up your lawn is a great way to increase your house’s visual appeal and it gives you the perfect place to spend your evenings with your family and friends. If you are planning to sell your house then this is a must-do step as it gives the perfect first impression to potential buyers.

You can aim to do it yourself if you are into it or you can choose to give this project to the contractors if time is the issue. No matter what the case, it will not take more than a couple of days and you can enjoy it afterwards for a long time.

4. Upgrade Windows

One of the most important things that you should do before summer comes is to invest in your windows. These are the places where the sun enters your home as well as the dust and other debris. You have to make sure that your windows are up to the task of holding up your privacy as well as keeping the rays of the sun out. You will save a lot in the long term because this will ensure that you have an energy-efficient house that doesn’t let the cool air escape and doesn’t let the hot air penetrate. It will also have a big impact on the noise that used to penetrate in your house as well as increase your house’s aesthetic appeal. Install shades or something else that you think is long-lasting and worthwhile.

5. Fix/Upgrade the Front Door

You may not know this, but fixing up your front door greatly increases your house’s value. Not only does it add to your house’s value, but it also adds to the energy efficiency of your house. This is one of the most important projects related to home renovation as most people don’t give it another thought. Just a small thing like this can make a huge change in the outlook of your home.

6. Add a Security System

Want some protection?

Go for a security system this summer. Or if you already have one, go for something that is a little bit more up to date. This is one of the projects that can be accomplished in the least amount of time. It will make sure that your house is just like a fortress—impenetrable. It will also add value to your house when you go to sell it and to top it off, it will reduce your insurance annual rate by anything between 15 to 25 per cent. Talk about multiple benefits. It might cost you a little bit, but the long term effects more than make up for it.

7. Bathroom Improvements

You can also think about upgrading one or more of your bathrooms. The best part is that you won’t have to pay as much as you thought you would. You can take up small projects—one at a time, and do them on weekends. It could be anything from painting the walls to adding a mirror or changing the faucets and taps, among other things.

Wrapping It Up

These are some of the best plans that you can make for your house before summer arrives. They will make living a pleasure as well as increase the overall look and it will add to the value of your house when you go to sell it. The best thing is that they are all economical and you can take on all or some of them according to your budget and time.

The Difference Between Home and Commercial Tanning Beds




google news

Commercial tanning beds and ones designed for personal use are each specifically created for unique purposes. Commercial items need to be able to stand up to the wear and tear of constant use while maximizing the profits of salons. Home units are meant to be affordable and to fit into the size and power requirements of standard homes. When looking for the machine that will give you that golden tan or when starting your own salon, you want to choose wisely.


One noticeable difference between home and commercial tanning beds is the cost of these units. Home models are designed to be effective, yet inexpensive enough to be affordable for individuals. Commercial models are made heavier, bigger, faster, and brighter to suit their purpose. They can easily see more than 25 uses in a day, five or more days a week. Home style machines simply won’t stand up to this kind of use. As a result, salon equipment have a higher price tag.


Commercial style tan equipment is created to grab the attention of customers. Extra lighting on the lid and handle, chic designs and finishes, and added luxuries such as music are all added with the client in mind. These machines are generally larger to give salon customers added space and comfort. Larger doors and comfortable designs mean these units are often easier for client to get in and out of. High-end models also offer you the option of having on-board diagnostics so that repairs and adjustments can be made quickly and easily.


Home tan equipment generally only have around 16 lamps inside to help individuals get a tan and use 110v power. They work well, but they require longer treatments to get the same results as a salon tan. In a salon setting, having customers spend more time in the equipment and this means getting less customers in per day and lost customers because of the additional time required. Commercial tanning beds generally use 220v and have 40 or more lamps to increase the heat and effectiveness. With these sessions running around eight minutes, salon owners can handle more clients and maximize profits.


When it comes to commercial tanning beds, the extras make all the difference. Some styles allow the client to direct extra energy to areas that require additional darkening. LED light technology has also been introduced into commercial models. They have a separate area for the face that uses this new technology to treat skin conditions such as dull skin, wrinkles, acne, and discolorations. Climate control is another feature popular on salon systems that allows the customer to stay cool while they tan.

Home and commercial tanning beds are both great options for getting a good tan, but when you have your own salon, they need to be profitable. Selecting the sturdier built salon beds for your business will save you a significant amount of money because they will last longer and have less down time. The special design these systems have will keep customers comfortable while they receive a fast, long lasting tan. This will help you gain additional steady customers and increase your profits to give you a successful salon.

How to Make Sure That You Never End Up Living in a Nursing Home




google news

It goes without saying that nobody wants to end up in a nursing home. It’s the single worst scenario in most people’s imagination. Would it be an exaggeration to say it’s “a fate worse than death”? Not to worry, it’s avoidable, and I am going to tell you how. But first let’s explore some ideas and define what a nursing home is.

First of all, you should know that on any given day in the U.S., 1 out of 4 people over the age of 65 are in a nursing home, temporarily. The chances of you, your parent or spouse spending some time in a nursing home at some point in your life is also 25%. Pretty high right? But keep in mind, that there is a vast difference between spending some days recovering from a hospital stay before going home, and living in a nursing home. Let me clarify that for you.

There are several synonymous names for a nursing home: S.N.F. (pronounced “sniff”) otherwise known as a skilled nursing facility, convalescent hospital, Rehab, rehabilitation hospital, even sanitarium. “A rose by any other name…” right? Nowadays, if an older person has a stay in the hospital, they still need some recovery time before they can safely go back home. It might be a hip fracture, a broken arm, or even an infection or a bout of pneumonia; nevertheless they are going to spend a few days or a few weeks recovering before being allowed to go home. These days hospitals release people “sicker and quicker” due to the Medicare reimbursement schedules. Several years ago to save money, the Medicare system went through every conceivable cause for hospitalization and gave it a value of x-number of hospital days, then told hospitals “this is what we will pay you…period. And it’s now a fact of life that nursing homes are a major player in the Medicare system, because they are cheaper than hospitals. So unless you are scheduled for surgery or you are in ICU, you are getting shipped out ASAP to a skilled nursing facility.

However, at any given time a large percentage of patients in nursing homes are there for the rest of their life. They are considered to be in “custodial care”. They are never going home. They are usually people that need to be on ‘machines’ or just plain ran out of money and now Medicaid is footing the bill. But chances are for most of them, it could have been avoided.

So how do you avoid ending your days in a nursing home? Compromise. I will tell you that the best way to avoid a nursing home is to move into a board & care or an assisted living before you get so sick that you lose all your options. It’s like this: many older adults refuse to consider assisted living until it’s too late and then end up in a nursing home, sometimes for 5 or 6 years. And it was avoidable. This is why: there are some weird rules in the licensing of an assisted living community that make it easy to “age-in-place” if you are already living there when you start declining.

But the same rules make it very hard to move into an assisted living if you are seriously chronically ill and trying to move in for the first time.

For example, imagine two people that are very chronically ill, the one that moved into the assisted living early on, is allowed to stay, even go on hospice for the remainder of their days, but the other that was living at home when their health turned worse will likely have a very difficult time moving into the A.L. community. The reason is most assisted livings usually do not want to take someone that will drain their resources, and/or the licensing agency will not allow admission to assisted living because the severity of their illness. And if you are on a limited income – forget about it. Assisted Livings and board and care homes are private pay only. Medicare and Medicaid will not contribute a dime for you to live in assisted living (even though it’s cheaper for them). Why is another article, let’s just say Medicare and Medicaid pay for medical issues and assisted living is considered a social issue. The much longer explanation can be found on government websites, or you can check the sites listed in my bio.

But to be perfectly honest, most people that are struggling to live alone should not hesitate to move into an assisted living community! Unfortunately in many people’s mind they think that they are maintaining their “independence” by struggling alone at home, when in fact they are far from independence. And this is a major delusion because most older adults who live alone are isolated, they rarely get out, they don’t eat well, they can’t keep up with the cleaning let alone basic home maintenance. They are often depressed because they have, in most cases, lived alone for years with only a television for company and most of their friends have passed on or moved away. Yet they continue to stay at home alone without proper care, nutrition, or socialization. Against all logic and argument to the contrary, they stubbornly hang on to their delusion of independence.

Let me paint a picture for you. A move to an assisted living community is like a combination of moving into an apartment and going on an Alaskan cruise. Forgive my over-generalization but imagine this: in assisted living you have an apartment-like suite that includes meals, housekeeping, and tons of socialization and activities. A typical day consists of getting up and going for breakfast in a restaurant setting and while you are out the housekeeper comes and makes your bed (once a week she changes all your linins). After breakfast you can go to the exercise class or the library or just go watch TV. When lunch time rolls around you go down to the dining room and have a nutritious meal and then head over to the next activity or go take a nap, before you know it, its dinner time. And after dinner there is a movie in the Theatre before you go to bed. Sounds nice? Keep in mind that you never again have to shop for groceries, cook, or wash a single dish. You don’t have pay the utilities, maintain a car, or even do your laundry. Every moment of the day is yours to do with as you will. Now tell me who is really the “independent” person? Best of all, you are able to “age-in-place”. You will develop new friendships and will have an emotional support structure that will remain with you indefinitely. Most people that come to assisted living are fairly healthy with the usual assortment of aging related issues, but as they get older they will need more help: assisted living offers things like medication management, bathing assistance, laundry service, transportation, housekeeping, meals, incontinence care and even dedicated one-on-one care. But few people need even half of these services when they first move in. That’s what we mean by aging-in-place.

To review, the way most board and care homes and assisted livings communities are licensed, a person can stay in an assisted living no matter how bad they get; even until they qualify for hospice and end of life. (There are some prohibitive conditions, but they are so severe, you would not imagine them in anything but a clinical setting, like feeding tubes and breathing machines). So if you are willing to compromise your “independence” a little early on, you can spend your last few years in a supportive, apartment-like setting, and guarantee that younever end up in “custodial care” at a nursing home.

The Many Lifelong Benefits of a Healthy, Happy Home




google news

The gift of a child is one that parents should treasure above anything else. The chance to give your love to a child is the greatest thing that you can do in the world. I believe that some people lose sight of how much their child’s well-being matters in the long run. The way you raise your child can have long-term effects on their life, and you are the most influential factor in their life.

If you cause harm to your child while they are growing up, it can cause serious psychological and physical damage for the rest of their lives. On the flip side if you raise them correctly in a healthy, happy home, they can reap benefits for a lifetime. Some of these lifelong benefits include having confidence in themselves, being a productive member of society, and also the ability to have healthy relationships with other people.

If you praise your child and shower them with love when you are raising them, it will give them confidence in themselves. Confidence can lead to many benefits in society from getting good grades, to making friends, to getting a good job. If your child does not have confidence in themselves, they might enter into a deep depression, or become a plague on society.

A healthy, happy home can also lead your child to become a productive member of society, because they will have learned the value of hard work and determination. These two values are very important in the development of a child into an adult. The final lifelong benefit of a healthy, happy home is the ability of your child to build healthy relationships throughout their lives.

If you want your child to be truly happy, then they need to know how to make friends with other people, and hopefully fall in love and get married some day. All parents should consider these benefits when they are raising their children, and make sure to put their child’s interests before anything else.

Top Six Reasons Why Home Automation Is For You




google news

Smart homes are increasingly common in Australia. As we bring more lifestyle enhancing technology into our everyday lives and high speed internet becomes available to almost every household, the possibilities for more control and convenience have multiplied when it comes to home automation. Here are the top six reasons why home automation is for you.

1. Total Control of Your Environment: A smart house allows you to take total control of your environment. Security is just one area among many. Home automation systems allow you to personalise different rooms and spaces for light, temperature, music and mood. You can schedule changes by pre-programming and leave the details to your system.

2. Remote Control: Control any aspect of your home that is connected to your automation system from a remote location. For example, if you’re on holiday or at work, you can control your security and alarm system, monitor your house, adjust your multimedia system to tape new shows when programs change, or turn on the lights before you get home. Once you get home, you can access and watch the video in any room in your house.

3. Energy Conservation: Home automation allows home owners and property management managers to closely monitor energy and water usage. With energy management software, any device that is connected to the network can be monitored and detailed reports generated according to time, hour, day or month. You can also request reports for each device and room or area so energy consumption levels are easy to identify, and informed choices can be made about conserving energy. Moisture sensors can be incorporated into you system so when you go on holiday, your lawn is only watered when it’s needed. Lights can be set to automatically switch off at a time, or if there is no one detected in the space, saving energy expenditure.

4. Great Security Options: There’s no better way to have a comprehensive and user friendly security system than home automation. Smart home systems commonly feature voice or video intercom for front doors and gates, movement censors, activated lighting, and security cameras for different rooms. In apartment buildings it’s also common to have door release and elevator control options. Sensors can range from movement sensors, to temperature sensors, photoelectric beams, and even reed switches, which send you a reminder when outside gate or garage door is left open for more than say, 10 or 20 minutes.

5. Integration and Convenience: Any home or building works best as a whole instead of a collection of separate component parts, and home automation allows users to make use of the latest technology in security, lighting, temperature control, and energy conservation on a single platform. It creates a central point of control with user-friendly software. After setting your preferences, you can leave it all to the system. Remote control of devices adds to convenience – you can change settings while you’re in the next room, in another city, or on another continent.

6. Information Gathering: Home automation systems are also potentially informational gathering devices. They are particularly useful for large apartments or houses where residents or building managers have a strong need to conduct monitoring and collect information for security, energy, and the manage of public spaces in a shared building. Even smaller residences can benefit enormously from having information on their energy and water use.

A Home-Centered Life




google news

Home is a place of freedom and comfort. Yet so many adults flee the home in search of money, meaning and self-fulfillment. I see so many busy people around me; parents with good intentions schedule all kinds of activities for their children.

I often wonder what they are racing after and suspect that all of these frenetic behaviors are ways of avoiding silence and deep contemplation. There doesn’t seem to be a lack of material goods and creature comforts, but there is a real yearning for love, intimacy and healthy relationships. All of this can be found in the home, but families must be willing to strive for simplicity amidst all the distractions.

I used to think that home life was unglamorous and boring when I was in the workforce. Important things only happen outside the home – so I thought. Building a strong home life is what makes for successful marriages, strong families and a strong society. As home schoolers, we are developing strong relationships with our children while siblings are developing strong relationships with each other. We are putting forth a full-time effort.

Embracing a home-centered life is often a slow evolution for many because home-centered lifestyles are not encouraged in our culture. Material desires and consumer habits often “require” that both parents work. Work is portrayed as more glamorous while staying home is viewed as menial.

When we spend time in the home, we not only eliminate the distractions and noise in life, but we can take time to ask ourselves the important questions in life and how we can best serve the family and others. People with hectic lifestyles seem to return to the home to recharge their batteries for another day of life apart from each other.

Much of the work we do as adults to improve upon ourselves and our relationships can be attributed to experiences from childhood. The home is the first and central place where we form values, virtues, and a view of the world. The home provides the foundation for our emotional development. You can see why it is necessary to devote a lot of time and energy to a home-centered life!

Developing a home-centered life may begin with a conscious choice to home school or home birth. It may begin with an unexpected illness, accident or unemployment. Those who see the value, opportunity and serenity of spending more time in the home frequently expand their home life. Moms who leave the workforce to raise children sometimes decide to home school.

After the family has enjoyed a homeschooling lifestyle for a few years, there may be a yearning to create a home-based business. We don’t withdraw from society or isolate ourselves from the world, but become detached from fast-paced and institutional living in order to develop a keener understanding of life and the world in which we live.

I believe we would have more global peace if people had more love in their hearts and if families lived home-centered lives. Think of a world where children were seen as blessings and not possessions or hinderances; where young children witnessed and were taught about babies, breastfeeding and committed relationships; where children were required (and actually desired) to show concern and respect for the environment, the poor, the powerless, the unborn, the elderly.

What about a world where individuals solved their own problems and took responsibility rather than turning to “experts,” lawyers, doctors or the government without first exhausting their resources and social network? How about a world that didn’t put so much emphasis on grade point averages, IQ scores, SAT scores, appearances or salary?

If we do not develop strong relationships within our families, along with a sense of commitment and sacrifice, we will continue to see a high divorce rate, selfish behavior, greed, and the darker sides of human behavior. We need more attachment parenting and less detached parenting. World harmony evolves from family harmony.

Institutions are too often dehumanizing and are meant to serve the masses, not the individual. As long as we continue to submit to institutional living (babies born in hospitals, day care, school, convalescent homes), we will pull farther away from developing the family unit into a strong, powerful force. “The family”- or building block of society – has crumbled, save for a few families who have the wisdom to know and act on what is really important.

How to Repair Foggy Glass Windows




google news

Nowadays, double-glazed windows are mostly used for new construction or as a replacement as they offer a much better heat barrier in comparison with single-pane windows. The core of this double-glazing is the IGU (insulated glass unit). The basic IGU has air filling the space between the sealed panes while the more sophisticated IGU comes with inert gas filling the space. The inert gas provides improved insulation, thereby reducing heat loss, as a result of which these windows have a much higher energy efficiency than the basic IGU windows.

What Causes Glass Windows to Fog Up?

Sometimes fog builds up within the panes of double glazing which not only reduces visibility but also makes the window look unsightly. The fogginess may come and go, and it is a clear sign of failing seals. Over time, seals around the edges of the glass unit begin to deteriorate due to a host of factors including sunlight, exposure to water, wind loads, working loads, etc. All these cause the inert gas from within the space between the panes to escape while the outside moisture fills up space. The infiltrated moisture condenses and forms fog whenever temperatures inside and outside of the home are extremes. The fog so formed in between the glass panes impairs the energy efficiency of the window, leading to increased heating bills.

Solutions for Foggy Glass

Until recently, you either lived with your foggy glasses or went for a complete replacement of the double glazing. The replacement involves changing the Insulated Glass Unit along with the frame around the glass or replacing just the IGU panel within the sash frame. The process however is cheaper in comparison with having to repair the whole window as less labour and fewer parts are involved in the job. These IGU panels are available with a warranty for a limited period.

The Defogging Procedure

There is a cheaper technique to repair foggy glass windows called the defogging procedure. This low-cost solution involves drilling a hole in the glass to remove moisture from between the glass panes, then seal it up perfectly to prevent outside moisture from infiltrating the IGU. The cost of defogging is about half the cost involved in replacing a whole IGU. This is a cosmetic improvement and the window looks better without the fog within panes. However, no inert gas is replaced within the panes nor the thermal efficiency of the window is restored.

Although DIY tutorials are available to get rid of fogginess in double glazing, these tutorials are not that helpful, and there are good chances of the work being botched up. It will be a wise decision to hire the services of professional companies as they have the right tools and equipment required to work safely. The experienced glaziers can not only complete the job faster, but the result will improve the beauty of the property.
