Keep warm this year!
Of course, the best solution is to have your home professionally insulated.
- Be sure to close doors to unused rooms and keep the heat where you are.
- Cover your floors! Area rugs add a nice color accent and warmth to your rooms.
- Use decorative door warmers to keep the cold out. If you don’t have one handy…head out to your local hardware store and buy some pipe foam. You can cut it in half and slide it under the door OR use two and cover with a pretty fabric wide enough to slide one on each side of the door.
- Remember to ALWAYS shut off space heaters when you leave the room. Never leave them unattended.

Many folks enjoy the convenience of a generator so that the all important electronic gadgets can be used in the event of a storm.
However, have you ever consider the danger a loss of electricity might be to a senior citizen or individuals with specific health issues? You may need to power valuable electronic devices, elevators, therapy equipment, etc. that will be of assistance to the care of someone living in the home.
In any case, a stand-by generator will add value to your home and is best installed by a professional.
A stand-by generator is quite an investment and can be powered by gas or propane. Be sure to purchase the unit that fits your needs. Unless you MUST have that hot tub running during a power outage-you might consider a smaller, more affordable unit.
One family might want just the basics covered: A/C, refrigerator, well water or sump pump and some outlets. Another family may choose to power the whole home. Expect to be governed by the rules of your town as well. Some have noise restrictions and location limits.
Ask a professional contractor such as HMMA, INC. to review your needs and help you choose the right size for your home or business.
