10 Things to do to Winterize your House

Posted 11-16-2009 at 04:08 AM by faucetman886

In Friday’s blog (11/13) I started talking about winterizing your home by inspecting and cleaning your hot water tanks. In researching other things that should be done I ran across a great article by Christopher Solomon of MSN Real Estate and have abridged some of his great ideas below and added some of my own.

Getting ready for winter: Lesson 1 the hot water heater

Posted 11-12-2009 at 08:17 PM by faucetman886

Well I don’t know where you are reading this but I’m at my home in Vero Beach, Fl where the only way you can know that its winter is that neighbors you haven’t seen all summer all of a sudden show back up and the neighborhood and streets are full of cars with strange license plates from far away and foreign places like Rhode Island, Connecticut , and Canada. There are so many Canadians down here that they have their own banks. I don’t know what the banks do during the summer I guess they just sit...

Posted 10-21-2009 at 06:14 AM by faucetman886

Well I would have thought by now that I had covered every possibility when it comes to “Whats’s that smell” but yet the questions keep coming. Frankly I’m happy for the letters and comments along with the chance to be of help. That is why I do this blog. Late last night I received the following comment from one of my HubNet articles:
“Hi. Interesting reading! I'm trying to figure out why a sewer gas smell would appear at my mom's house, after not smelling it for the 3 previous years she's...

More on Living the Green Life

Posted 10-19-2009 at 07:17 AM by faucetman886

I have written, several times in the past, about the importance of living the “green life”. We were especially affected in the past few years in the Atlanta area with an extreme water shortage. Not the problem this year as you may have noticed lately the Atlanta area has begun a cycle of too much water causing floods and massive destruction of homes and businesses in areas where there have never been flood problems before. So the old adage “feast or famine” could easily be restated as either “drought...
