Why Your Home Isn't Energy Efficient ? And What You Can Do About It

Tuesday, August 14, 2018


Each year, homeowners spend countless dollars on unnecessarily high energy bills. Many of the appliances in your home may be working much harder than they need to, and you might not even realize it.

Ensuring that your home is energy efficient is the first step to solving this problem. Some people may think that making their homes more energy efficient is expensive, but the truth is that some of the fixes are simpler than you think.

Keep reading to learn some of the signs that your home may not be energy efficient and what you can do to change that.

Your Electric Bill is Higher Than it Should Be

One of the first — and most obvious — signs that your home isn't energy efficient is a very high electric bill. If the heating and cooling appliances in your house are working overtime to keep your house comfortable, it will reflect in your bill.

Keep track of your monthly bills. If you notice that it's higher than usual, it may be time to call an HVAC technician to take a look at your home.

Your House Is Always Too Hot or Too Cold

Everyone wants to feel comfortable at home, but that can be difficult when the temperature is never quite right. If your house feels cold even when the heat is on or it's hot when the AC is on full blast, you have a problem.

When your home's HVAC system is functioning properly and your home is adequately insulated, you shouldn't experience extreme high and low temperatures.

You Have An Old Air Conditioner

Most people want to hold on to their air conditioning units for as long as possible because — let's be real — they're expensive. But hanging on to an old AC can actually cost you more money in the long run than purchasing a new one.

Just because your AC is working doesn't mean that it doesn't need to be replaced. If your current unit is more than 10 years old, it could be as much as 30 percent less energy efficient than newer units.

The Temperature in Your Home Varies from Room to Room

If your bedroom feels like a sauna but your living room feels like an iceberg, your home is having some serious issues with energy efficiency.

Inconsistent temperatures from room to room could be caused by a number of things, including a duct issue or an air conditioner that can't produce enough cool air to be distributed evenly throughout each room.

If your home has any of these issues, the best thing to do is contact a local HVAC professional. Someone who is trained to deal with heating and cooling appliances can help you safely diagnose any problems you're having and let you know if it's time to repair or replace your unit. The most important thing is not to wait until it's too late. Something as simple as a phone call to an HVAC service could save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

You’re Marriage Matters to Your Children

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Children pick up on emotions even more than adults do. They will notice how you interact with your spouse. A stressful home environment leads to a stressed child. This will carry over to their school work and their relationships with other children. Your marriage will impact all aspects of their lives and obviously, yours. Let’s take a look at a few ways to improve your marriage.

Time with each other

This can be tough, especially if you have young children or school age kiddos. As parents, we get consumed with taking care of our kids. There is so much to do to keep our kids going. There are meals to prepare and endless snacks. Bathing them, doing their laundry, running around town to take them to school and practice. Being a parent will consume your entire day. It shouldn’t though. You and your spouse need time for just the two of you. Aim for 30 minutes each day, but 15 minutes will work. During this time do not talk about work or the kids. This is the time to reconnect with your spouse.

Teach Your Children to Respect Your Spouse

Your child learns behavior from you. They listen to the way you talk and act. If you are disrespectful to your spouse, your child will pick up on that. This can be a huge reason why a relationship can fail.

Imagine living in a house where multiple people are disrespectful to you. This will lead to low confidence and anger.

Remind your child of the important things that your spouse does by praising how hard they work or how nice they are. This will go a long way.

Be a Giver

In a relationship, there is always give and take. The best way to strengthen your relationship is to give. Give your time, give your energy, give your love.

Try to find ways to make your partner’s day better. If they are usually the one who tackles laundry, try doing a load or two for them. The same goes for dishes.

If they have a favorite food or dessert, trying making it for them as a small way to brighten their day. Try to find a way to go out of your way, your partner will notice the extra effort.

Expect Nothing, Absolutely Nothing

This goes hand in hand with being a giver. No matter how much extra you do for someone, do not assume or expect they will do it back. Hopefully, they do, but do not expect that they will.

This will only lead to disappointment. Even if your partner doesn't return the favor, it probably doesn't mean anything negative about the relationship. Your partner could have had a bad day or just not feeling well.

Keep the Bedroom Active and Exciting

So, everyone knows that bedroom activities are important. Its human nature. It needs to happen. That intimate time together helps you to reconnect with your partner. It is important to engage as a couple in a healthy sex life.

Don’t be afraid to spice things up a bit. Depending on your sex life, this can be anything from trying new positions, wearing new lingerie, or for same sex couples, trying one of the strap ons for couples.

No matter what you decide to do, make sure you are hitting the sheets regularly. When there are gaps in your sex life, it can kill your partner's confidence.

Even though most of these things your child will not know about, your child will pick up on small things. They will notice that your relationship is stronger and more positive. It has been proven that children are happier and thrive when their parents are happily married. It has also been proven that children stress less and have better coping skills when their parents have a better marriage.

It is important for children to see a healthy relationship. Hopefully, by adding some of these things into your relationship will not only improve your marriage, but also give your child a well rounded life.

Heal N Soothe Can Prove To You That It Will Help You Move

Saturday, August 4, 2018


Arthritis is the most common disease in the United States of America. Although people of all ages can suffer from the inflammation of joints, wearing down of cartilage that would otherwise protect the balls and sockets of human joints, and stiffness that reduces mobility and adds to the pain caused by the all-too-common condition. Inflammation also rears its ugly head in countless other ways throughout the human body, especially when people grow older. 

Many people in the United States who suffer from chronic pain usually go visit their healthcare practitioner and seek out medication to remedy their situations. Unfortunately, the most common class of medicine given to people who report chronic pain to their doctors is highly addictive and is ultimately responsible for causing the opioid epidemic the United States is currently caught in the middle of. 

People who aren't interested in taking prescription medications written by their doctors sometimes seek out supplements; while many ingredients in supplements are said to offer health benefits to those who consume them - they're often the same ingredients that are utilized in traditional Chinese medicine - the supplement industry isn't at all regulated, meaning manufacturers can put just about anything in their products and not face punishment from government agencies like the United States Food and Drug Administration, the same agency that would go as far as pulling prescription medications off the shelf if they didn't meet stringent requirements. 

Fortunately, some supplements are, in fact, solid choices that actually contain what their manufacturers claim to include in such capsules, tablets, powder, or other preparations. One of these supplements is called Heal N Soothe, a product made by the popular supplement company Living Well Nutraceuticals. 

health, Heal N Soothe, arthritis

What is this supplement, anyway? 

Heal N Soothe is a relatively new entry to the supplement market, though it's certainly sticking out like a sore thumb thus far because so many users report that this product simply works!

Living Well Nutraceuticals isn't the only reputable supplement company behind the powerful supplement; the National Enzyme Company is responsible for actually manufacturing the bottles of capsuled Heal N Soothe, whereas the Healthy Back Institute is a fully-fledged sponsor that helps spread the word of what the many users of Living Well Nutraceuticals claim to experience as a result of consuming the supplement. 

How does Living Well Nutraceuticals' hottest supplement help people? 

This supplement's system enzyme therapy helps flush the body of proteolytic enzymes, effectively nixing inflammation. 

The Internet is filled with reviews regarding the effectiveness and efficacy of this hot, new supplement - here are just a few reviews that illustrate the point 

Laurie Stricker is a 69-year-old retired woman that lived in the midwestern United States - Tulsa, Oklahoma. Throughout her working life, she reported that she was seemingly always on her feet. The now-former wedding planner, caterer, and party planner carried countless heavy objects throughout her career; unfortunately, Laurie was forced to cut her career short because she was physically unable to work. 

Mr. Stricker shared with the world via YouTube not too long ago that she absolutely hated visiting doctors' offices for quick fixes like deep steroid injections that both hurt extremely bad and didn't last as long as she wanted them to. After roughly 17 weeks of consuming this supplement on a daily basis, Laurie Stricker reports having little pain - everyone's mileage will certainly vary, though Ms. Laurie's story is nothing short of inspirational to people who suffer from chronic pain.
