Back to School Allergy and Asthma Tips

Posted by Ivey on August 12th, 2013

boardIt’s time to head back to school. While this is an exciting time for returning students to catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and embark on new experiences, students with asthma and fall allergies often struggle to keep symptoms under control. Here are a few tips for student’s of all ages to stay healthy:

Visit your child’s allergist: Before returning to school, make an appointment with your child’s doctor to for a health check-up. This is a great opportunity to discuss any new issues, as well as to develop a plan to keep your child healthy throughout the year.

Meet with teachers and school health professionals: Teachers are often a first line of defense for helping control allergy and asthma symptoms away from home. Discussing your child’s symptoms will help teachers respond quickly and appropriately in critical situations. Teachers and school health professionals should also have copies or access to information about your child’s wellness plan, including medications like inhalers and epinephrine kits.

Keep Your Cool and Finish Summer Projects with a Portable A/C in Your Garage

Posted by Ivey on August 1st, 2013

Garage WorkspaceFor many families, the garage becomes a multi-use facility. Whether you use it as a work station, place to restore your dream car, or it’s the practice space for your  band, summer brings one common problem: soaring temperatures. Unfortunately, this heat can transform  your crucial band practice into what seems like heat survival practice—and in some areas of the country, it’s going to be hot for a while longer. Not to mention the toll that keeping an attached garage cool can take on your electricity bill. Despite the heat, there’s no reason to list your car for sale or break up the band; instead, try out a garage portable air conditioner.

Portable air conditioners let you keep your attached or unattached garage cool within a budget. Even better, they take up very little room and are easy to wheel into place, so you’ll have room open for your tools, storage items, and more. A compact portable AC you can easily move in and out of your space is a common feature to consider.

Since garages don’t have good insulation and can get super-hot, it’s important to get a portable AC that’s powerful and rugged. If your garage has a window, venting a portable AC is simple using its window kit; if not, you’ll have to vent through a wall or out the main garage door—but either way, all portable ACs need to be vented.
