How to Understand Your HVAC System

Ductless air conditioner

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning and it is the most important system in your house. Throughout the seasons, each part of an HVAC system takes a role.

During summer, the air conditioning unit transforms hot air into cold air by condensing it, keeping a living space comfortable for people and animals. During winter, a heating system takes over and provides heat to all areas of the house, which prevents illness. And the ventilation system keeps allergens, dust, and dirt from circulating through your home.

Understanding the HVAC system is important to reduce the possibility of a sudden collapse of one part of the system. Knowing the

If you’re thinking about starting some DIY projects and are looking for some gear to get started past the basics, consider an air compressor. Though it may not be the first thing that comes to mind, an air compressor can be an incredibly useful and versatile tool to have on your side. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes — a manufacturer, for example, may have a gigantic set of air compressors complete with plenty of room for their air compressor tubes, pipes, clamps, and more, while if you live in a smaller apartment or home, a petite compressor might be more up your alley.

Preventing Damaging and Expensive Home Plumbing Problems

Drain cleaning

Owning a home can be a dream, but it also involves a lot of work. When you own a home, you are responsible for all of its needed repairs and maintenance. If the basement floods, you are responsible for the cleaning and for repairing the water damage. If the oven breaks, you must call a professional to fix it. If the plumbing system becomes clogged, you must unclog it, or call a professional plumber to provide rooter service. The plumbing is an important part of any home, but it is also prone to problems. When a plumbing problem occurs, the home can become flooded or the toilets and sinks can become clogged.

Unclogging a toilet or a sink is one of the minimal repairs that a homeowner can do. The process simply involves pouring some type of unclogging liquid into the toilet or drain, and then flushing. A plu

Above Ground Versus Below Ground Tornado Shelters

Above ground tornado shelters

Storms are not as mystifying to us as they once were. We now know that storms are less “acts of God” that can occur at any moment, completely unpredictable — and more weather patterns that we can not only predict but quite often track with significant accuracy. Luckily, storms don’t kill as many people as they once did. But part of the reason why storms are no longer as deadly as they used to be is the use of storm shelters. Storm shelters have been in use for a good while, and have kept thousands of people safe, ostensibly saving lives. But the fact is that the storm shelters we once used — below ground storm shelters — are nowhere near as effective as above ground storm shelters. Above
