Air conditioning units can be a life saver during the sweltering summer heat. During the harsh months of winter, though, they can take a beating. Make sure that they are working properly when the temps soar by using air conditioner covers. Keep leaves, dirt, debris, and moisture out of your motor. They help block drafts and reduce noise. Many come with vent panels to reduce inside condensation and wind lofting. They offer the perfect protection and insulation for your air conditioning unit. Don’t go another winter without one!
Making sure that all of your prized possessions are protected this winter is easy with protective covers. Covers are available for all of your assets that are stored outdoors and will protect them from snow, ice, and other environmental factors. Car covers offer outstanding protection to your automobile. They reduce damage to your paint job and maintain a clean, dry surface. Boat covers offer the same protection for your boat during the off-season and ensure great conditions in the spring and summer. Motorcycle covers, RV covers, and even lawn mower covers are also available to shield your favorite outdoor items from the damage of mother nature. If you can’t find the cover that you are looking for, you can check out custom covers which can be made to fit any size and dimension.
Do you get the feeling that your snow thrower is going to come in handy this winter? I know I do. Those of us who have already had to clear snow this season know that there are many long, cold, and frosty months ahead of us.
One of the worst things we can do when we rely so heavily on equipment, like snow throwers, to help us maintain our home and property is to neglect that equipment. In order to take proper care of the snow thrower, it’s important to follow the instructions for regular maintenance that can be found in the owner’s manual.
It’s also a good idea to take that extra step of covering the snow thrower with a protective snow thrower cover when it’s not in use. When we take proper care of our equipment, we can be sure that it will take proper care of us — especially when we’re hip deep in that white stuff.
During hurricane season, homes along coastal regions are often without power for extended periods of time. High winds, pounding rains, falling trees, and flying debris are several of the many disasters that can knock out power lines during these damaging and deadly storms. Generators are essential in areas that are constantly in a hurricane’s path. They are gas powered engines that can provide electricity to your homes during times of power outages. Air conditioners and heaters, home security alarms, refrigerators and freezers, telephones, and lights can all be run with a gas powered generator. As you can see, these machines are often VERY important to the welfare and sanity of people in a hurricane’s wake. During the months that are not in hurricane season, make sure that you keep your generator dry, protected, and ready to go in the case of an emergency. Be sure to store them in a dry environment and use a generator cover for added protection. Covers protect against sun and UV damage, bad weather, dirt, birds, and tree sap. Taking proper care of your equipment not only keeps it in top shape, but it can extend the life of the equipment and guarantee many years of dependable service. With superior protection, you can be sure that your generator will be ready at a moment’s notice.
Many cities and communities have ordinances that require residents to keep their lawns managed and presentable. In some places, these laws are strictly enforced. Can you imagine the city charging you if they have to take matter into their own hands and trim your lawn? Can you imagine them charging you $650 for this one time service? This recently happened to a home-owner in Phillipsburg, NJ. After neighbors complained about the unruly lawn, the city presented the home with a notice to get the lawn in order. When they didn’t, the city did. They were charged for the overtime labor of two city workers and well as the charges for use of the town’s trucks. That is one expensive day of landscape maintenance! Don’t let this happen to you. Check with your local government or community program to make sure that you are following lawn maintenance restrictions. Keep your lawnmower and other yard tools is clean conditions and working order to make sure that they are ready year round. During the off season, be sure to use measures that prevent unusual wear and tear, such as lawn mower covers. You don’t want to pay the costs for excessive grass!
Who can deny that one of Dad’s favorite activities is saving money? Your dad, my dad, the kids’ dad… it doesn’t matter — most of these guys really get jazzed about saving a buck or two. Any dad will tell you, too, that the surest way to save money is to take care of the stuff you already have. That way, you don’t have to shell out any dough to replace any stuff until it absolutely falls apart.
Enter my husband, who happens to be a dad, too. He’ll do anything to avoid replacing what he feels is still functional. His work boots are falling apart, but to him, “they have character.” His weed whacker is held together with duct tape and spit, and he argues for its extended life by telling me — “hey, it still works!” Luckily, the more expensive the tool, the better he cares for it. The lawn tractor is a good example.
After each use, my husband wipes down his prized lawn tractor with a towel and checks the oil and gas levels. He then makes sure to cover it with a protective lawn tractor cover to keep dirt and dust from settling on any of the tractor’s surfaces and components. I wouldn’t be surprised if he sings it a gentle lullaby before tucking it away under its protective cover.
I may tease him, but I have to admit that all the care he puts into maintaining the lawn tractor, as well as our vehicles and other more expensive possessions, pays off when I see how much that extra care and attention prolongs their lives and saves us significant amounts of money over time. So, thanks to my husband, and thanks to all dads out there who do their darndest to save their families a buck. Happy Father’s Day!

For many homeowners across the country, the time to store away the snow thrower is at hand. Even if you hope to never see that snow thrower again — at least until next winter — resist the urge to push it to the back of the garage or shed and bid it a hasty farewell.
To be sure that your snow thrower works just as well for you next winter as it did this winter, take a moment to prepare it for long months of hibernation by covering it with a snow thrower cover. That one small step prevents months of dust and dirt from settling on your snow thrower and its components. This, in turn, reduces the amount of time and effort it takes to maintain your snow thrower and ultimately extends its life.
Since Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow on Groundhog’s Day 2011, we can only hope that his prediction is right: Spring-like conditions are on the way! Since the majority of the country has had a much harder than normal winter, even the thought of warmer temperatures is promising! With nicer weather comes the question of where to store your winter tools. Protective covers are a great solution. Generator covers offer all-season, heavy-duty protection from many environmental factors, including sun and UV damage, bad weather, dirt, birds, and tree sap. You can keep your generator in great shape and ready for next winter, while keeping it handy just in case of emergencies. Snow thrower covers offer the same protection to a tool that you will hopefully store away all summer long! Snowmobile covers keep your snowmobile clean, dry, and safe while not in use. Rear air vents reduce inside moisture and keep the cover down during winds. Most covers include bottom hems that are elasticized for a fast, custom fit.
If you are looking for a larger summer storage solution, you could put all three pieces of equipment in a portable garage. Portable garages are available in a variety of sizes and are designed to withstand years of wear and tear. You can use these shelters year round to store anything that you don’t have room for or that you need to protect. Simple solutions can make storing your winter tools a breeze this spring and summer!
It’ll be here sooner than you think…snow. Are you prepared? Have you checked your snow thrower to see that it is still in good working order? Do you have a Snow Thrower Cab for protection? If not, try to remember using the snow thrower during last year’s snow…
The freezing wind blows the loose, wet snow into your face and down your neck. It doesn’t matter how many layers of winter clothing and outerwear you have on, that biting wind and icy snow find a way in, making the job of clearing your driveway and sidewalks a never-ending nightmare. After you finish, there’s little room for satisfaction because you know that you’ll have to pull out the snow thrower again in a few days after the next snow falls.
Something as simple as a Snow Thrower Cab can make the chore of clearing snow immeasurably more pleasant. A cab protects your head, torso, and hands from exposure to wind and moisture, which allows you to complete the job more effectively and with much less discomfort. A Snow Thrower Cab attaches easily to your two-stage snow thrower, and it can be removed quickly for storage.
