Use today’s technology to save time and money.

Put your home on autopilot (BPT) - Every homeowner can remember a time when they wondered, “Did I lock the front door this morning?” or “Did I leave a light on?” Others can attest to that feeling of dread knowing their air conditioner is running full blast while they’re away on a weekend trip. There’s nothing worse than worrying about the security of your home - or your rising electric bill - while you’re away. Fortunately, recent advancements in home technology offer peace of mind when it comes to energy efficiency, security and time savings. Almost any home can be put on “autopilot” without breaking the bank. Many areas of the home can benefit from some simple technology upgrades. Efficiency Heating and cooling a home accounts for 50 percent or more of a home’s energy bill, so it’s important to incorporate the latest technology to make it as easy as possible to be as efficient as possible. “ We have seen some great advancements in home technology that maximize the energy efficiency of heating and cooling products,” says Bobby DiFulgentiz, an energy efficiency expert with Lennox International. “For example, as thermostats become more advanced, homeowners now have the ability to optimize home comfort and energy savings.” One example of these smart thermostats is the Lennox icomfort WiFi thermostat. Homeowners can maximize energy savings through its one-touch away mode and remote control capabilities. Additionally, the thermostat communicates with a home’s HVAC system and provides real-time alerts to service providers regarding any maintenance issues that need attention. The icomfort Wi-Fi also is the only thermostat that

can blend into its surroundings by using customizable “skins” that match wallpaper or paint, or even allow it to be disguised as a piece of art or a family photo. Water usage also is a concern when it comes to efficiency. Homeowners can cut down on water bills by using home sprinkler systems that incorporate Wi-Fi technology. These systems allow homeowners to start or stop sprinklers from anywhere, avoiding water waste when heavy rains have already saturated the lawn. Many systems now even include wireless capabilities that prevent sprinklers from activating during rain or freezing temperatures. Security Homeowners can rest easy, thanks to automated systems that ensure their home is safe and secure. Companies now offer products that check, open and close garage doors directly from a smartphone, tablet or computer. There are also lock systems that respond only to the fingerprints of residents of the home. If that’s not enough, new technologies send text or email updates when doors are locked or unlocked, and can remotely lock doors through Wi-Fi. Time Savings Finally, kitchen appliances are beginning to integrate technologies to streamline the day-to-day routines of homeowners, allowing for maximum time savings. Consumers can take the hassle out of finding the perfect cooking setting by using a microwave that can scan a bar code on a dish and automatically adjusts to the correct time and power for the particular product. Ovens equipped with Wi-Fi allow cooks to monitor their meals on a mobile device and put the crock pot to shame.

Deer are among nature’s most beautiful animals, but they can cause headaches for homeowners.

Freeze out deer this winter (BPT) - Deer are beautiful, graceful animals, we cannot deny it. But when it comes to where deer decide to dine, most of us just don’t want them outside our windows foraging through our foliage. Their beauty and grace comes with the destruction - even devastation - of our well-cared-for and often expensive landscaped yards and gardens. If you think your yard is out of the woods since summer’s over, think again. Deer damage can actually get worse in fall and winter.We know deer can do extensive damage to landscapes in any season, but during winter, when their food sources are scarce, they can be more aggressive and bold, wreaking havoc on trees and shrubs they never touched in warmer weather. A single deer eats about 12 pounds of foliage a day, and in winter they’ll turn to any source of vegetation to satisfy their appetites. Bucks can travel 100 miles or more, but does don’t migrate.They usually stay within the same three to four square miles for their entire lives. That means once a doe finds an easy food source in your yard, she’ll be back again and again, season to season, and you can bet she’ll bring her friends and babies with her. During winter months, a deer’s diet changes. Instead of the grass and leaves they favor during summer, deer turn to woody plants in winter. That means your evergreens are at risk. Although a deer’s mouth is usually about 28 inches above the ground, when one stands on its back legs, it can reach as high as 6 feet off the ground. That reach allows them to create a broad swath of damage to even tall trees. Even before the weather turns really cold, deer can cause damage to trees. Fall is mating season. Bucks become aggressive and the new antlers they’ve grown over the summer itch. They scratch by rubbing

their antlers on tree trunks - even those they don’t like to eat - and can cause serious damage to trees. The best approach to preventing deer damage is a proactive one. Don’t wait until you see deer or deer damage in your yard to deal with the problem. So what do you do to keep the deer out? There are loads of ‘home remedies’ that have been tried with varying results: human hair, soap, pepper spray, even coyote urine. These remedies might work sporadically, but they are not reliable deterrents for deer. Then there’s fencing. Properly built and maintained fencing can be an effective method for preventing deer damage. But, deer can jump up to and clear an 8-foot fence on level ground, and they can easily push and remove plastic netting. Installing a 6- to 8-foot fence can be an effective solution to some extent, but fencing is costly and can be quite unsightly. One of the most effective and easiest methods to deter deer is repellents. Repellents rely on deer’s strong sense of smell. Many are available in the marketplace, but few have credible third-party testing for efficacy, and some rely on chemicals that are unfriendly to the environment, and can be injurious to certain trees, shrubs, and especially to new growth. Bobbex Deer Repellent is a topical, natural, proven effective foliar spray used to deter and prevent deer, moose and elk from browsing and causing other damage to ornamental plantings, shrubs and forest trees. Bobbex’s blend of ingredients deters deer with taste and smell, and is actually beneficial to plant development. The active ingredients are a series of proteins, making the product extremely safe for use on the most sensitive plantings.

Winterize your home in a weekend (BPT) - Preparing for Jack Frost’s arrival can send a shiver down any homeowner ’s spine. A long to-do list for getting your home ready can feel overwhelming, leaving you wondering where you’ll find the time and resources. But, with some optimism, easy tips and access to a few rental tools, you can winterize your home in just one weekend, leaving plenty of time to enjoy autumn’s splendor. Prepare your lawn and landscaping Cold temperatures cause grass and other plants in your landscape to go dormant. Spend a few hours preparing your lawn for beautiful greenery next year. Start by aerating. Renting an aerator is a cost-effective and efficient way to reduce thatch and provide extra space in the soil for water and oxygen to reach the roots. Find a local American Rental Association (BPT) member store near you by visiting RentalHQ.com. After aerating, spread a quality winter fertilizer to give your grass the nutrients it needs to grow strong. If you live in an area with harsh winters, remember to cover roses and delicate perennials so that they are protected. Winterize your deck The harsh winter elements can take a major toll on decking, so it’s important to protect it. With a little time and effort, your deck will make it through winter unscathed and ready for outdoor fun in spring. To keep the structure’s integrity intact and wood looking beautiful, clean and seal your deck before winter arrives. Start by renting a pressure washer at your local ARA member rental store. The trained rental associate will give you guidance on

safe and efficient operation of the pressure washer. After you clean your deck, let it dry completely and then apply paint or sealant. Trim your trees Weak trees and dead branches can break and fall during winter, possibly damaging your home, your car, a utility line, or worse. Be a responsible homeowner and cut weak or dead branches in the fall so you don’t have to worry. A chainsaw is the easiest way to deal with dead branches and will take much less time than hand sawing. You can rent a chainsaw to cut the wood into small logs or pieces for disposing of properly. Chippers can also be rented for grinding up the wood and using it for mulch in the spring. Seal windows and doors When temperatures drop, the small leaks in windows and doors become apparent. Avoid a chilly house and high energy bills by caulking your windows and weather stripping doors. Weather stripping is cheap and easy. Apply the adhesive strip between the door and frame for a tight seal that limits the amount of air that enters or exits when the door is closed. Caulking windows is a simple process as well when you have a caulk gun. If you need a tall ladder to reach second story windows, consider renting it since you’ll likely use it infrequently. While you have the ladder, clean your gutters of leaves and other debris that can cause backups and ice dams. All you need is one weekend to prepare your home and yard for the cold weather ahead. Plus you’ll get to enjoy the crisp autumn air while you get these quick and easy chores done.

Ideas for storing those off-season items By MELISSA RAYWORTH Associated Press It’s that time of year again, when we pull out the blankets and sweaters and stash the last of the warm-weather items until spring arrives. Many homes lack the space needed to store everything right where we use it. So seasonal things get shuttled around and sometimes even misplaced. If the serving dishes you use only at the holidays are stacked way up at the top of your pantry, “you may find yourself running out and buying something you’ve already got, because you can’t remember what you have or you can’t get to it,” says Atlanta-based interior designer Mallory Mathison. Many of her clients struggle with insufficient closet space for storing items that are only used for a few months each year. Here, Mathison and interior designers Brian Patrick Flynn and Molly Luetkemeyer offer advice on creatively storing off-season items in ways that maximize every inch of space and make it easy to retrieve what you need. FIND DOUBLE-DUTY FURNITURE All three designers love furniture that offers hidden storage. A bench with storage space inside is perfect for boots, and bins containing scarves, gloves and hats. Or add a large coffee table/ottoman combination to your living room: “They’re an easy way to sneak a bit more seasonal storage into a room, without having to add extra closet space or add pricey, big-ticket furniture pieces,” says Flynn, founder of the design website decordemon.com. “You can find a ton of storage-ottoman-coffee tables on websites like overstock.com or hayneedle. com.” For families with pets, Flynn suggests creating a sleeping space for a small dog or cat that doubles as seasonal storage. “To do this, I take a flea-market dresser, usually a highboy with four to six drawers, then remove the bottom two for use as an open lounge space for pets, complete with a removable cushion,” he says. Use the remaining drawers above for seasonal items like off-season clothing.

a covered porch area designed by Brian Patrick Flynn displays hooks that create additional storage space on the exterior of a house.' MAXIMIZE UNDER-BED SPACES Many people use the space under their master bed for seasonal storage. Luetkemeyer suggests doing the same with every bed in the house. Tuck clear plastic bins under children’s beds (and a guest bed, if you have one), labeling each one clearly. You can rotate items in and out of these bins during the year — one holding

swimsuits all winter might hold sweaters in summer. If you know that all under-bed space is designated for seasonal items, it will be easier to track down the oncea-year items you’re seeking. Also, see whether any sofas or other large pieces of furniture might have room underneath for flat storage bins. See “STORAGE” on Page 31

Storage Continued from Page 30 TRY CREATIVE CARPENTRY Mathison suggests having built-in cabinets added along the walls on both sides of your bed. Creating this architectural niche for your bed “is totally cozy, and it also creates great concealed and/or open storage,” she says. Another built-in option: If your kitchen cabinets don’t go all the way to the ceiling, add extra closed storage on top for seasonal serving dishes and table linens. Or have a row of very shallow shelves (no more than 3 or 4 inches deep) added to one wall of your kitchen or pantry. You can prop up dishware or serving pieces you rarely use, creatively storing them while adding some beauty to your walls. Also, search your home for bits of squarefootage that aren’t being used, such as a crawl space under a staircase. Hire a handyman to add a small door and turn that empty space into a cabinet. Consider changing your kitchen seating: Swap out chairs for built-in benches with hidden storage, then hide rarely-used items there. GET HOOKED “Seasonal things that inspire you should be left out as much as possible,” Flynn says. “I use a ton of wall hooks in my spaces, mostly to be able to hang up favorite pieces of clothing which add decorative flair to a room.” In a bedroom, a cluster of favorite flannel shirts can look great on decorative hooks, and the same goes for winter jackets. In summer, hang your favorite T-shirts or swimsuits on those same hooks while the winter items are put away. This works well in kids’ rooms and nurseries, helping ensure that kids wear their cutest pieces before the season ends and they grow out of them. USE CLOSETS WELL Maximize closet space by adding shelves up high if there aren’t any, then keep a small step-ladder in the closet for accessing high items, Luetkemeyer says. Add inexpensive, battery-powered lights to dim closets, and increase shelf space by adding a row of canvas hanging shelves. In a guest room closet, if you have one, Mathison suggests using two rows of hanging canvas shelves — one filled with items your guest may need, such as extra towels and soap, and the other left empty so your guest can put out some of the clothes they brought. Then use the rest of the closet for your seasonal things. It will be clear to the guest what space is theirs and what isn’t. If winter items will be hung in a closet, Flynn opts for “thick wooden hangers or sculptural modern aluminum hangers to

Consider splurging on rebuilding your closets with exactly the shelving and hanging space you want: “This way, every closet in the house can work for all seasons,” says Flynn. “We spend a ton of money on our cars and have garages built for them, right? Well, we spend just as much on our wardrobes, so why not invest in a space to store that investment?” ROLL OUT THE RACKS Mathison suggests keeping seasonal things like coats in clear plastic garment bags on rolling racks in a basement or attic. They’ll stay clean, and when it’s time to swap them with the opposite season’s items in your main closets, having items grouped

in garment bags will make it simpler to transport them quickly back and forth. Rolling garment racks are easy to find and affordable, but it’s important to choose good quality ones so they don’t bend under the weight of winter clothing. Mathison is also a fan of coordinated bins or baskets to organize smaller items (gloves, hats, swimsuits, goggles) in closets. It’s easy to move these bins out of your main closet into a basement or attic during the off-season. PARE DOWN Luetkemeyer points out that the change of season is a great time to identify items you don’t use and get rid of them. Consider donating sheets or blankets you rarely use to a charity or shelter. Do the same with bulky winter coats and sweaters. You’ll save space for seasonal items, and also embrace the meaning of the holiday season.
