Must-Haves For a Healthy, Clean Dorm Room

Posted by Tony on August 5th, 2014

collegeIs summer really almost over? If my morning commute was any indication, the answer is definitely yes. While the end of summer really only affects my commute and time spent at the pool, there are parents across the country sending kids off to college for the first time.

Described as “the best 4 years of your life,” college living situations (particularly old, dirty dorms) are generally less than ideal. I was in for quite a shock when I first walked into my dorm room–it was dusty, hot, and a far cry from the house I grew up in…and for better or worse, my college apartments never got much better.

So whether your child is off to college for the first time or heading back after summer, they’re probably entering a less-than-desirable living situation. Here are some must-have products to improve their air quality and keep them comfortable for the school year ahead.

Eva-Dry E-100 Eliminator Buckets

eva-dry-e-100-eliminator-bucketsThe Eva-Dry E-100 is a unique disposable product that removes moisture and odors for up to 60 days. Its carbon and micro-absorbing crystals absorb moisture, musty odors, and allergens from closets, storage bins, and other small areas. They’re ideal for college students who don’t have easy access to laundry facilities and are living in small dorm rooms with poor air quality.

Even better, they fit into any college student’s budget since they cost around $20. In fact, the Eliminator buckets are on sale right now! See more dorm room must-haves!

Prepare Your Home for Summer Heat

Posted by Tony on May 14th, 2014

sun

After a strenuous winter, it’s already time to think about the hot summer months ahead. Forecasters say it’s going to be a scorcher, and the last thing you want to deal with is a hot house all summer. Consider the following tips to keep your family comfortable and safe this summer—they’ll help keep your energy costs down too!

Schedule a Professional AC Tune-Up

Central ACs account for most of the electricity used during summer months, and just like your car needs regular tune-ups–so does your air conditioner. Simple maintenance will keep it running at its best and prolong its life.

A professional air conditioning tune-up will include safety inspections to make sure your system is safe and meets the cooling needs of your home.

Improve Your Air Conditioner’s Efficiency

thermostat

  • Change your air conditioner’s filter monthly as needed.
  • Use a programmable thermostat and program it to run only when people are at home.
  • Keep leaves and debris away from your air conditioner’s outside cabinet

Other Easy Tips for Staying Cool

  • Ensure Proper Attic Insulationlaying insulation
    If you’re attic isn’t properly insulated, it can reach scary-high temperatures (140 degrees F), and this heat will build up, seep into your home, and make your AC work harder.
  • Install Ceiling Fans
    Help your AC out by letting fans circulate cool air around your space. On cooler nights, these may help avoid using your central AC.
  • Unplug Unused Electronics
    Reduce energy and heat output in your house by unplugging appliances and electronics you’re not using.
  • Cover Windows
    You can help reduce the heat in your home by keeping your windows closed and covered by blinds or drapes to block out the sun during the day.honeywell-mm-ac-lg
  • Add Supplemental Cooling
    If one of your rooms gets overly warm or you only need to cool certain rooms you’re in a lot, consider installing a portable air conditioner or even a window AC. For energy-smart models, look for ACs with the Energy Star seal—earned by models proven to save you money on energy/operating costs.

By taking some time now, you can make your home more comfortable and safer for your family this summer. Then, you can relax and enjoy the summer weather to come! Have additional tips? Tell us below or on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

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.

NASA-approved: Plants Keep the Air Clean in Your Home

Posted by Ivey on March 5th, 2013

Household plants improve indoor air qualityLet’s face it: When most people think of plants, they often think of allergies. As a result, many people choose to keep plants outside to reduce the likelihood of suffering from the sneezing, itching, and coughing that may occur in the presence of certain plants. However, a study published by NASA revealed that some common household plants can actually improve indoor air quality.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), levels of pollutants inside the home are often two to five times higher than outdoor pollutant levels. You’re probably thinking, “How is that possible? I clean my floors and counter tops regularly.” Well, don’t be too hard on yourself because these excessive levels aren’t necessarily the result of poor housekeeping. Find out which plants can clean your indoor air

Are You Losing Sleep Due to Poor Air Quality?

Posted by Kylie on February 20th, 2013

SleepingA group of disorders known as Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB) is linked to a number of lifestyle factors, including age, weight and gender. A recent Harvard study shows that another cause is at work: poor indoor quality. With an estimated 17% of U.S. adults suffering from one of these disorders, this information is a breakthrough in SDB research.

While the link between poor health and poor air has long been known, this is the first known study on the relationship between air quality and sleep.
