Keep Your Cool: Tips To Maintain A Constant Temperature In Your Home

Family life means differing opinions rearing their ugly heads now and again. What are you going to watch on the TV when you’re all together huddled around the gogglebox on a Saturday night? What’s for Monday evening’s dinner when you have a vegan daughter, a lactose intolerant son and a husband who only eats beef? The stresses of family life can cause friction simply because everyone wants and needs different things. One of the hardest things to get right is the temperature of your home. To find the elusive temperature where it is not too hot and not too cold a la Goldilocks for every single family member is nearly impossible. However, use these nifty little tips to make your life easier.



By putting the climate control of your home in the hands of technology, you are relinquishing all responsibility of finding the perfect temperature to some sort of innate force. The Hive thermostats are affordable and easy to set up. These genius bits of technology will allow you to select the temperature you require for your home. If you’re on your way back from work and it suddenly starts pelting it down and the temperature drops, your intelligent thermostat will take notice and give your home a burst of heat to mitigate the cold. This could be a cool way for the kids to get clued up as to what’s involved with heating the home, utility bills and finances.


Look Up

You don’t always have to rely on the traditional form of cooling to secure the optimum temperature for your home. Sometimes, it’s simply too hot. While sitting in front of an open freezer may seem appealing, there are more effective ways of cooling down the rooms of your house. Consider purchasing a set of ceiling fans for the rooms in your humble abode that tend to heat up the quickest. The benefits of oversized ceiling fans with large blade spans include the fact that cooler air is pushed down towards the floor more efficiently resulting in a cooler climate. Big fans are also statement pieces and can add to the interior design of your home.


For The Coldest Of Days

Sometimes traditional heating methods just won’t do. If you have longed for the warmth of a log burner or a roaring fire for as long as you can remember, now might be the time to purchase one. If you have a snug or small sitting room area, lighting a fire can have your immediate environment warm and cosy within minutes. There’s no need to turn on the heating when you have an idyllic roaring fire warming up your toes. Ensure that you keep your chimney swept and cleaned, so soot doesn’t build up, and you can enjoy the winter season indoors.

Maintaining a constant temperature within your home is tricky, even in the most insulated of pads. It’s even harder to find an optimum temperature that satisfies every family member. However, if you follow these tips, you may come closer to reaching the optimum temperature goal.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
