Imagine arriving home after a hard day's work and instead of agonizing over what to cook for dinner, your refrigerator offers you an array of delicious recipes based on what's inside!  Then just for good measure, it detects food that's about to expire!
 
Smart homes allow devices to communicate with one another in order to complement your daily routines.  You can program your blinds to slowly open in the morning while at the same time the bathroom floor warms up and when you're done in the shower, your coffee will be ready and waiting!
 
Smart features such as voice command systems help support independent living for the elderly and disabled.  Having the know-how to sense scenarios such as the homeowner falling means help will arrive quickly as it automatically calls emergency services as well as other emergency contacts.  This provides peace of mind for both the homeowner and their family members.
 
Intelligent homes also provide exceptional security as lights and blinds can be enabled remotely and your smartphone can even notify you if someone's lurking around your property!  These features are especially beneficial for those who own vacation properties.  Keyless entry systems that use fingerprint sensors can also trigger certain home appliances and devices depending on who enters.
 
Intelligent climate and light control saves energy and lowers bills so your home will be both the smartest and eco-friendliest on the block.  The heating and cooling system can even create climate zones specific to individual family members preferences and can monitor how much electricity homeowners use in order to find ways to save even more energy.
 
A smart home is like a personal assistant who handles all the odds and ends such as preheating your oven for your arrival home!  You can now relax if you're not sure whether or not you set the alarm as you know it'll be taken care of.  This type of technology is no longer for just the rich and famous.  It's a major selling point and the higher your home's IQ, the higher the resale value will be!

Your backyard is the perfect place to take a break from the busy pace of modern life.  Installing a water feature will help transform your garden into an oasis of tranquility and may also increase the value of your home.
 
Water attractions can be as simple or complex as your budget allows.  Installing a pond is more involved since you have to dig and line a hole.  Safety is of course a critical concern if you have small children and if you plan on digging, contact the appropriate utility companies to ensure you don’t break a line. 
 
Keeping fish and other aquatic life means you’ll create an environmentally friendly haven for wildlife such as frogs, birds and butterflies.  There's also a wide range of green alternatives such as solar powered fountains to choose from.  By utilizing the sun's rays you'll use less power, enjoy lower electricity bills and won't get in a tangle over electrical cords!
 
It’s important to spend time during the planning stage to ensure your water feature will integrate with your landscape and environment.  Once you’ve finished designing and implementing your new eye catching water feature, find a comfortable seat and enjoy the peace and tranquility.

If something's going to go wrong with your A/C, it'll likely happen at the beginning of a heat wave.  You'll roast for days until a technician’s able to come out and when they do, the repair cost will make your blood boil!
 
A neglected air conditioner isn't as efficient or reliable so it's important to have it serviced every so often in order to ensure optimum performance.  The service check will include cleaning the unit coils, checking the amp draw of the compressor, adjusting the belts and topping up the fluid.
 
Regularly servicing your air conditioner will prevent wear and tear plus it will increase the efficiency of your unit which in turn will reduce your electricity bills.  Don't let it slide again this year!  Schedule your check-up today and avoid being left out in the heat.
