As the seasons change and we begin to close the windows and fire up the furnace problems can occur. If the furnace, water heater or other appliances in your home are fueled by natural gas there should be several carbon monoxide detectors in your home.
Byproducts of natural gas include carbon dioxide and water vapor. Complete combustion of gas produces a harmless mixture of these two byproducts. However, when a fuel is burned without proper air for complete combustion, a toxic gas called carbon monoxide may be produced. Incomplete combustion could happen for a number of reasons:
Here are some simple steps to make your home more accessible if you’re living with someone who has disabilities or elderly. There are a number of trip hazards that should be addressed like throw rugs which can catch or slip under people. You can simply tape them down to prevent slippage and they can be removed easily. Using chairs with arms will help when getting out of the chair. In the kitchen purchasing large handle grips for tableware will help make life easier and also purchasing double handled pots and pans will help. Replacing knob handled door handles with the lever type will help those with arthritis. More complex projects will require installing grab bars in the shower area and near the toilet. Non slip table on the bottom of the tub or shower will also help prevent injuries.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you, disconnect your garden hose and shut off the faucet and drain the supply pipe. NOW! Every year people forget this little procedure and end up with a broken pipe and flood house. After the first frost you should definitely disconnect the garden hose or the water will freeze in the hose and the faucet and pipe. When water freezes it expands and the pipe will burst. There are two types of valves on the outside of the home the newer ones are called frost proof but can be shut off from the outside without danger of bursting. The older lawn faucet valves should be left open and shut off from inside the house. When you locate the valve on the inside there should be a little cap on the side of the valve to back drain the pipe. Make sure you do that.
