Christmas Decor for a Small Apartment

Living in a small apartment doesn't offer many options for elaborate holiday decor. With a little ingenuity, however, I've created a lovely holiday-themed apartment. A miniature lighted Christmas tree carefully placed on my side table greets visitors as they enter my home. Making good use of my front room window, I have adorned it with decor, using tinsel and garland, as well as miniature stockings hung with suction cups. As a festive alternative, you might try hanging shiny ornaments on the window in much the same way. If your apartment is designed with a staircase, decorate the banister. Use garland, tinsel, holly or even holiday greeting cards. Finally, if your apartment is furnished with a fireplace, decorate the mantel. I've placed a two-foot tall animated and musical Santa on my mantel. I hope my blog gives you some fun decorating ideas for your small home.

Three Benefits Of Regular AC Tune-Ups

by Luke Patterson

As a homeowner, having central air is definitely a great privilege. However, this privilege can be expensive, especially if you aren't getting regular tune-ups. Here are the three important benefits of regular AC tune-ups you should know so that you stop skipping out on them:

Keep Your Warranty in Place

When you first installed your central air conditioning, it likely came with a warranty. It's important to look over the terms and conditions of that warranty to ensure that you are following the proper protocol to ensure your warranty does not become void. Most warranties will require that you receive regular tune-ups since this ensures that repairs are much less likely to happen. If you aren't getting regular tune-ups done, the warranty can be void, which ensures that you are going to be spending a great deal of money out of pocket if any damages were to occur to the unit within the time frame of the warranty protection. For this reason, the small cost of a tune-up is well worth the money you could be saving on repairs. 

Improve Performance

Regular AC tune-ups are going to ensure that your air conditioning is working at its most efficient. This is going to save you money in energy costs. You will also notice that your home cools quickly when the air conditioner is turned on and you don't have to set it to a lower temperature just to experience a small change in the overall temperature in your home. When the performance is better, so is your overall comfort in your home. 

Better Air Quality

When you run your air conditioner, it is going to circulate air throughout your home. If this air that is being circulated is dirty, it's going to lead to you and your family getting sick more often, especially if someone suffers from allergies. When you have a tune-up done, you can be sure that your AC unit is being thoroughly cleaned in the areas that need it to ensure that the air being circulated is clean and clear from dirt, dust, and debris. You want to hire professionals to do this too because getting the dirt out on your own is difficult if you don't have the right tools or knowledge of where dirt tends to gather the most inside of the central air system. 

When you know these three benefits of regular AC tune-ups, you can see why it is so important that you do not skip out on them.
