By the time fall rolls around, most of us are ready to say ‘goodbye’ to the summer heat, and hello to a few months of cool weather. However, autumn is more than just a time to enjoy the changing color of the leaves and the dropping of the mercury in the thermometer; it’s a time to prepare your home for the coming ravages of winter. After all, if you don’t take care of potential problems now, before they actually happen, you could find yourself stuck with some major repair work right in the middle of the Holiday Season. Here’s a quick list of things you need to do to prepare your home for the coldest months of the year.

1. Prune back your hedges, shrubs, and branches.

When it comes to being covered in snow, the plants with less surface area are less likely to get damaged. Trimming back your outdoor plants will help keep them safe, and will give them a nice fresh start to grow from once spring arrives.

2. Check around your doors and windows.

With the cold fast approaching, now’s the time to locate any areas of your home through which heat could escape. Make sure that the caulking around you windows is solid and free from cracks, and check around your doors to make sure that they shut securely without leaving gaps.

Hello, Since I found a comment on HHO kit on these posts, I like to have an answer for my question below. I have been looking for HHO kit for my car. I found one of the kits below, but not sure it is worthwhile to purchase. http://hydroxsystems.com/en/category/1/hho-generatori-za-leki-avtomobili-i-busove.html Can you please recommend good HHO kit, which you tried? My target is 20% MPG increase with reasonable ROI. Thank you in advance!

If you cover your A/C, be sure to use a ventilated cover. Trapped moisture will damage your unit.

There are other ways also. One is make a hho generator (also known as a hydrogen generator). You can use the hho gas to heat your house (no pollution), or you can cook with it. You can use hho gas in place of propane gas. Details on internet as how to make one.
