One thing that I have come to realize is that almost everyone’s AC return air grilles are bold, boring, and just plain ugly! It’s natural if you do not realize how ugly the metal air grilles are until a friend mentions it or points it out, but air grilles just stick out like a sore thumb.

Itchy eyes, scratchy throat, runny nose… Wait—aren’t those symptoms supposed to go away with the coming of summer? Just because spring is gone does not mean that the allergies are gone with it. In fact, summer allergies can make your summer fun and relaxation anything but fun and relaxing.
What causes allergies? Allergies are triggered when you breathe certain particles and the immune system fights back. When allergens find their way into the nasal passage, the immune system treats them as foreign invaders and begins to release antibodies, which are generally made to fight off...
