Your one-stop-shop for everything home maintenance.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve all been spending a lot more time in our homes. We’ve watched the home and garden shows on TV and seen the housing market provide record-breaking returns to homeowners that have done a few improvements and updates.
With two months gone in 2022, you may be feeling a little guilty about not keeping your New Year's Resolutions. Whether you promised yourself that this would be the year you'd get back in shape, or start saving money for that summer vacation, or finally tackling those home improvement projects, there's no time like the present to get started.
Whether you have new home appliances or are comfortably getting along with your old ones, there will come a day when you'll encounter a breakdown. There's never a good time for any appliance to stop working, but if you don't have a plan for repairs, your household could be in chaos. An appliance protection plan is the best way to keep things running smoothly especially in times of trouble.
The last two months were really busy. Between preparing for the holidays, hosting get-togethers, and visiting friends and relatives, you probably didn't have a lot of time to think about home improvement projects.
Spring is nearly here, and as the balmy days of tank tops and shorts beckon, we’re ready to throw open our doors and windows, get some fresh air and sunshine into our homes, and simply let it all hang out. After being cooped up all winter, it’s about time.
One of the great things about 2022 is that people are giving more thought as to what they put in their bodies – and that doesn’t just go for what’s in a product, but also where it came from.
Folks can debate until the cows come home about which is a better reason for getting a high-efficiency washing machine: saving the earth or saving money. We’re not here to take sides – no matter why you’re looking for an eco-friendly washer, we’ve compiled a list of the best high efficiency washing machines 2022 has to offer.
We're all familiar with the phase-out of incandescent lights in favor of more environmentally friendly and energy efficient LED bulbs, strips, and fixtures. While you may have started to replace a few of your lights as the old ones burn out, you've probably noticed that the new lighting can cost an arm and a leg.
We are happy to share our national appliance report to help consumers make the best appliance purchase decisions using our data on affordability, the best value for money, ease of use, and more.
As the days start to get shorter and school is, at least theoretically, back in session, there are plenty of autumn joys to charm even the most sun-hungry beachgoers – apple cider, comfy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything.
If you find yourself working from home more often these days, there are lots of great reasons to create a dedicated home office space to work out of. Whether you’re looking for a quiet place out of earshot of the kids (and safely out of range of any flying toys), or if you happen to think more clearly if your television isn’t calling to you out of the corner of your eye, a dedicated workspace can provide a huge boost to your productivity.
If you live in a warm climate or have toasty summers, your air conditioner unit is the household appliance that is used the most. Since the units are located outside of the home, most of us do not worry about them until a problem arises. It's easy to neglect your system, and you should recognize a problem before it shuts down your unit entirely. Some obvious signs will alert you to get a professional right away.
Texans like things big, and for good reason – bigger is almost always better. But with big things come big responsibilities, especially when it comes to windows. With temperatures pushing (or passing) 100 degrees most days, a naked window in the Texas summertime is – well, it’s an invitation to turn your home into a king-sized sauna. And the larger your windows are, the more heat they allow inside.
It’s remarkable what can be accomplished in just a few hours – depending on who’s the one getting it done. While some of us might be able to struggle assembling a piece of furniture and stare despondently at the scattered pieces, a handyman can install a ceiling fan, paint a room, and assemble that furniture with no sweat. Hey, we’ve all got our strong suits.
This year, Mother’s Day is more meaningful than ever as we realize just how important our loved ones are. It’s a welcome opportunity to show how much you care through a phone call, a gift, or a flower delivery – while respecting social distancing guidelines, of course.
