Air Filters, Fire Alarms, Garage Door and Water System- Fall/Winter Checks

Think - Air Filters, Heating System Inspections, Carbon Monoxide Detectors, Water Systems and Garage Door Openers
Hello everyone, its time to start preparing your house for the winter. There are several things you need to do to ensure your house runs well, and safe.
First, you need to arrange to have your heating system checked out to ensure it is running efficiently by a local heating and cooling technician. Second, you need to go outside and ensure there are no obstructions around your heating system so that way air is flowing freely.  Once you do that, you want to go inside the house and change out your air filters. Air filters should be changed out about every 90 days unless you have some kind of specialized filters that can be reused.  
Next thing you want to do, is change out all the batteries on your emergency warning systems. I'm talking about changing out batteries for your fire alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, and smoke alarms throughout your house. And also, don't forget about changing the battery to your garage door keypad. I can't tell you how inconvenient it can be on the batteries run out on your garage door keypad on a cold rainy day - the door will not open.
And, one thing you might want to consider while you change out your batteries and your filters. If you have wood floors I highly recommend using rubber mats you could purchase through Amazon or through Walmart. I'm talking about the pads the people like to use for gyms or weight rooms. These pads are about 1 inch thick and they protect your floor from anything you might drop such as batteries or tools, or even the filter door covers so you don't hit your floor and scratch them up. Depending on the size your home, floor repairs can run anywhere from a few hundred dollars to about $4000… Very expensive.
Last, if you live out in the county, you want to make sure that if you use a well water system for your home that you fill up the salt supply. You should check on your salt levels frequently that way your water system doesn't corrode because of hard water.
Cheers

SNOW BULLY–Better than a Shovel, Easy to Use, Energy Efficient, Cost Effective and Made in the USA

Are you ready for the snow season? I don't know about you, I have a long driveway I hate just pushing snow out with the shovel. I don't have a truck where I can add a snow plow blade to push away the snow. However, I did find something that may be of interest to you… It's called the SNOW BULLY . I just purchased a SNOW BULLY a little over a month ago. It’s made of heavy steel, but very easy to maneuver. I cannot wait to use it. Shoveling can be backbreaking work, it can also be dangerous because of the amount of stress it can put on your heart. The SNOW BULLY is easy to maneuver and push your way through snow. The SNOW BULLY is cost effective; you do not have to hire someone to clear your driveway.
