Screw hooks are more efficient than standard wall hooks and can hold more weight making them perfect for your shop or utility room. It’s likely you’ll want more than one but screwing them in by hand is tedious work. Inserting them can be easy but it’s important to always start with a drilled hole first. Use a screw eye to go back to the holes and insert the screw hook. You’ll get a tighter grip and save on sore arms.
HVAC quotes are easy enough to obtain online but they are unlikely to be the best options for homeowners looking to save on costs or perform repair. The quotes are rarely specific and the best way to consider options for your HVAC system is to request an inspection. A professional inspector will look at a host of issues like correct air flow, condition and potential problems. They could even tell you where you can save money.
Double paned windows are made from layers of glass, literally a double set of glass panes. The space between them is devoid of air and vacuum sealed. The seal around the panes can weaken over time and once that happens, air can leak between them. Age and use both contribute to the loss of seal and heat escape can occur. The vacuum on the pane cannot be replaced and homeowners should replace the entire window in order to get a complete seal again.
Schools are now in session. Most of them start in August and December. One thing to take note of is the fact that some districts do not have any air conditioning. This makes students sweat throughout the day. Many districts across the United States faced this issue at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year. Schools from Detroit all the way to Los Angeles had to close down because of the heat. It had an impact on all age groups.
Did you know that you can ACTUALLY grow pineapples in your own home no matter where you live? It’s actually easier than you would think, all you need to start with is the crown of the pineapple. Since pineapple is a bromeliad, they can absorb water through their leaves and roots like common houseplants. To grow, take a pineapple stalk and pull the leaves off and let the stem completely dry. Plant the pineapple stalk and water it enough to keep it moist. As it grows over the months, continue to repot plant as it gets bigger and bigger, and in about a year you should have a big enough plant to move to a five-gallon container. Happy planting!
