There are many reasons people choose to humidify their homes. Dry air caused by winter or living in a dry climate is responsible for a range of problems. Physical symptoms of dry air include: a dry nose and throat, which can make you feel sick. Other physical problems include chapped lips and tight, dry skin. Dry air can wreak havoc on your home as well. Static electricity is caused by lack of moisture in the air. This lack of moisture causes the air to pull moisture from your wood furniture and floors, causing cracking and splitting.

You can choose a room humidifier or a whole house model. Whole house machines are only available if you use a forced air heating system in your home. Your basic choices for humidifying your home are warm mist, vaporizer, or cool, pure mist humidifiers. Vaporizers cause the least amount of health problems, while cool mist models spread the most germs.

Benefits of Humidifier Filters

For many years, people with respiratory problems have been advised to use a humidifier. This advice is changing, as more is learned about potential dangers associated with these products. Humidifiers can cause respiratory problems, even in people with no history of difficulty. The main causes of these problems are bacteria and mold spores.

Improper use of a humidifier can spread bacteria and mold through the air. These particles are then breathed into the lungs, causing breathing problems and illness. To prevent this, you need to use care when using one of these products in your home. Many cool mist humidifiers are now being made with humidifier filters to help prevent the spread of these particles.

Materials used in Filters

A variety of absorbent materials are used in humidifier filters. Some have microbial coatings. These help reduce bacteria, but can clog easily. To be efficient, they must be changed regularly.

The best choice is a machine that uses High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA). People with allergies or asthma need these products, which are the air filtration option most often recommended by doctors. The material used in making HEPA filters is fiber glass and synthetic resin in a tight weave. This construction traps tiny particles as small as .3 microns. More particles are removed with HEPA than any other filter on the market.

There are a few models on the market that are combination humidifier and HEPA air purifier. People with severe respiratory problems sometimes use a separate air filtration system to keep the air clean. Both machines can be used simultaneously to both moisturize and clean the air without making you ill.

Replacing a used filter

In most cases, you can purchase a replacement filter in the store where you bought your machine. Depending on the store, there may be a less expensive option. Replacements are easily found on the internet for all humidifiers. You need to make sure you get the right product and size for your machine.

Pictures are available on most websites. Look at the brand and model number as well as the picture to be sure you are getting the correct size. Find out if the vendor has a return policy, in case you accidentally order the wrong item. Many companies charge a flat rate for shipping. To save money in the long run, purchase a few at a time. You will always have a spare when you need one.

It’s important to change filters regularly. Check the manufacturer’s directions to determine the frequency. This information is only a guideline. If your machine gets heavy use, replace the filter more often. With even the most minimal use, it should be changed at least once a year, at the end of the season. Discard the old filter before you pack the machine away and put in a new one for the next season.

Humidifier bacteria treatment products are said to extend the life of humidifier filters. These solutions kill bacteria in the water, keeping the filter healthier. You place the solution in the water before every use. A large bottle will last the season because you only need one capful for each application. These products can be purchased in many stores selling humidifiers and at most hardware stores.

The idea behind multi-level marketing is straightforward. Picture that you have a product to sell. A common MLM product is some sort of universal solution, such as a vitamin pill. You could do one of two things: either sell it directly to consumers or find others who will buy your product from you and sell it to other people.

The idea behind multi-level marketing is straightforward. Picture that you have a product to sell. A common MLM product is some sort of universal solution, such as a vitamin pill. You could do one of two things: either sell it directly to consumers or find others who will buy your product from you and sell it to other people.

MLM systems require that you recruit people not only to buy and sell your product, but who will also recruit other people to buy and sell your product…and then recruit even more people. This may seem unusual since you are recruiting people to compete with you, but MLM will convince you that it is reasonable to recruit competitors because you will get a cut of their profits. This will take your mind off the fact that no matter how big your town or market, it is limited. There will always be a few people in MLM systems who will make money but the majority will fail, just due to the nature of the system.

Multi-level marketing is a system of marketing which puts more importance on the recruiting of people than on the selling of products which is makes for a flawed system. MLM is very attractive to many people though because it sells hope and appears to be outside the typical type of business. It promises wealth and independence but unfortunately MLM is much more likely to result in failure than success. The most successful MLM scheme is Amway which has millions of distributors worldwide with sales going into the billions. In the year 2000, an average Amway distributor earned about $700 a year in sales, but spent about $1,000 a year on products. Remember, that sellers also have other expenses such as transportation, communication, etc.

This type of system is very beneficial to those who own the company or supply the products, but to those lower down on the pyramid, this is nothing but a money eating scheme.

However, there are a few benefits to being an MLM member, such as getting certain tax write-offs, access to special products, the chance to meet new friends and maybe even a few bucks. But, while all of these things can be good, none of them will benefit you’re real financial situation. Other downfalls about being an MLM member is that you can never admit to others if you are doing badly. In order to sell products you always have to keep on a happy face to customers, which often include family and friends. So unless this sounds like a good career move to make, most people would suggest that you steer clear of this opportunity.

Whether you need to paint the interior or exterior of your home, it is imperative to find the right painter for the project. Having a good home painter will ensure you have a quality job that is affordable and completed in a timely manner. Make sure you choose a painter with experience and who can do a good job for you.

Get several quotes for your project before deciding on a painter. Make sure the quotes include details of what is included, price for the job and an estimated completion date. Find out what the payment options are and what constitutes final acceptance of the work. Make sure you have a warranty included for touchups if needed. It is advisable to pay the final portion of the job only when a thorough walk through is done and you have accepted the work. Make sure you obtain the contact information of each painter so you can ask follow up questions if needed.

Interview each potential candidate to determine if they have proper experience with your type of job. Ask for references and follow up on those to ensure they have a sound customer base of happy clients. Ask to see pictures of work examples so you can visualize the type of work they perform.

If you have an older home, you may have lead paint. This is potentially hazardous but an experienced home painter will know what to do and how to dispose of materials to minimize risk. A painter will know how to avoid hazards to keep the family safe while completing a quality job. A painter should already have all the supplies and tools specific to house painting.

After interviewing and collecting quotes, decide on the painter to hire. Choose the painter who has the best combination of skill and price. You will work closely with this person to communicate color choices and specifications, so be sure you pick someone you are comfortable talking with. A quality painter will make sure the job is finished properly.

Word of mouth is the best way to get a quality painter. People who are satisfied with the type of work a painter has done for them in the past will be eager to refer them for other jobs. Once you have your painting project complete and you are satisfied with the quality, keep the painter’s details handy in case you have another project or a friend needs a referral.

Who said language doesn’t matter in making relationships work?

In an interview with Deborah Tannen, whose new book, You’re Wearing That?
Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation, has just hit the top sellers list, the New York Times and Tannen have this exchange:

“Q. Many of the women you’ve interviewed for your new book complain of mothers who criticize their appearance. Are they right to be annoyed?

A. “Right” and “wrong” aren’t words a linguist uses. My job is to analyze conversations and discover why communications fail. The biggest complaint I hear from daughters is: ‘My mother’s always citicizing me.’ And the mother counters, ‘I can’t open my mouth; my daughter takes everything as criticism.’

But sometimes caring and criticism are found in the same words.

When mothers talk about their daughters’ appearance they are often doing it because they feel obligated to tell their daugher something that no one else will.

The mother feels she’s caring. The daughter feels criticized. They are both right.

What I try to do is point out each side to each other. So, the mother needs to acknowledge the criticism part, and the daugher needs to acknowledge the caring part.

It’s tough because each sees only one.”

Tannen adds, “If you understand how conversational styles work, you can make adjustments in conversations to get what you want in your relationships.”

This is true for conversational styles between sellers and buyers as well. Any seller’s first challenge is to get the attention of the other person.

Often, the language sellers use gets in the way of that. Sellers have a way of talking that is instantly recognizable to the rest of the world. And in my classes, thousands of people, themselves in sales, say that when a seller starts talking, they want to run the other way.

How would you know if you come across like one of those sellers people love to hate?

Here are two tell tale signs:

1. They speak to us in technobabble – as if they forgot how to speak like a normal person. Glyconutrients that impact at the cellular level is not how normal people talk. Save the jargon for talking with each other. Sellers must relearn to speak in a human voice if they want to engage consumers – that’s us, all of us. We want to speak to people who speak our own language.

2. They hype. E.g. They make big promises about what will happen when the person buys their thing – but how can they keep a promise about someone else’s future? Or they give us the bombastic boasts – “We are positioned to become the preeminent provider of XYZ…” But no one that matters is listening. Consumers have become immune to this kind of fake communication.

Attention is in short supply. No one has time to give you their attention. To get it, you have to tell them something interesting, and in the first ten seconds. One way is to learn to tell an authentic story – yours, using a human voice that others can instantly relate to. (See “If My Product’s So Great, How Come I Can’t Sell It?” for suggestions.)

If you can’t get someone’s attention with the words you use, how can you hope to start a relationship?

There are several advantages to building a home as opposed to buying one that is already built. With a custom home you get the house built to your specifications. The components usually incorporate the most modern design elements and all the features are new. Resale of a custom home is usually better since they are typically built in areas of expansion. Also, it can be personally gratifying to take such an active role in designing and building the home of your dreams. Finding a good home builder, though, can be tricky. There are several things to consider.

Decide on the type of home you want to build and the lot where it will be built. The type of land and area may be restrictive, so take that into consideration. A home builder who is or employs the help of an architect will be beneficial in designing the home to your specifications. Ensure they are skilled in all aspects of home building including soil conditions and building codes.

Make sure the builder has experience or specializes in the type of home you want. Building types vary greatly and it makes no sense to use a builder specializing in log cabins to create your ultra modern home. Get a list of past projects so you can look at what they have done in the past. Equally important is experience in the area where you want to build. If a builder is familiar with building in established developments but you want a home on your isolated tract of land, ensure they are aware of the environmental conditions to avoid pitfalls based on the soil or landscape.

Check the references of the potential home builder. Past customers are an ideal way to determine if they do a good job. Ask if the home was built to their specifications and everything is in proper working order. Ensure that the home builder has been in business for awhile with a solid reputation. Also, make sure they are financially sound. You don’t want your home builder going bankrupt mid project, leaving you with having to find someone to complete the project at a much greater price.

Find out when they will be able to start the project and the estimated time of completion. Custom homes can take time to build so if you are in a hurry, there may need to be compromises in design elements. Get everything in writing – especially the warranty. Ensure the warranty is comprehensive and will cover all aspects of faulty construction for a period of time. It is rare to see potential issues in a new home within the first few days, so be sure the warranty will cover you for a significant time.

You will spend a lot of time with the home builder you choose, so be sure you are comfortable interacting with them. Building a home can be highly rewarding and a lucrative investment. Taking time to choose the right home builder for your needs will save time and frustration; allowing you to more fully enjoy your new home.

Fiberglass Roofing

With the advent of more innovative roofing materials, fiberglass roofing is continuously being reinvented and redesigned to add to a wide array of roofing selection in the market these days. Fiberglass was first used in 1938 and as the name denotes, fiberglass is a composition of very fine fibers of glass. It has been a reliable material even in the past because of its malleability or flexibility, meaning it can easily be formed and deformed according to desired composition. It is also durable and can be lightweight, making it easy to handle.

The previously mentioned characteristics of fiberglass paved way for the development of fiberglass roofing which, even up to these days, have undergone revolutionary designs and product advancement to cater to different needs and purposes. One of the most common reasons residential and commercial building owners choose fiberglass roofing is because of its flexibility and versatility being the natural properties of fiberglass.

Fiberglass roofing may be shaped into different kinds of roofing panels, examples of which are corrugated panels, shingles, tapered roofing panels, etc. It is easy to install because of its lightweight attribute. It can be designed and shaped according to how one wants it to be, and it can come in different colors and textures. These specifications can be done in fiberglass roofing because during its manufacturing stage, it is synthetically mixed with chemicals and some minerals that make it more malleable in the process.

You may let a professional roofer do the job or you can just do the roofing work by yourself. When installed properly, it provides efficient waterproofing for the roof, certainly protecting your roof from unwanted water leakage during rainy days. Its tough and durable membrane offers a resilient cover and protection for the home. What is even more remarkable with this type of roofing material is that it is by far about 65 to 70 percent cheaper than the others. Its average lifespan, however, lasts for 25 to 30 years, not as long-lasting as concrete, metal, or plastic.

There sure are a lot of innovative roofing materials in the market today, fiberglass roofing being a part of the list. Synthetic materials like asphalt, cement, plastic, and fiberglass have indeed proven to be durable and reliable over time. Yet it is still important to know the best roof for your home, and the aid of a roofing professional can help in your roofing decision.
