Winter is right around the corner

Before freezing temperatures arrive, here is a checklist just for you-

outdoor spigot

Outdoor spigots (faucets)

  • Disconnect garden hoses from outdoor spigots.
  • Turn off the water supply to those spigots. If you don’t where the shut off valves are, they are usually located in the garage or in a closet.
  • Once you turn off the water to the spigot, go outside and turn it on to drain any remaining water. This also makes sure the water has been turned off.


  • Start winter off with clean gutters! Clogged gutters and downspouts can cause damage and cost you money down the road.


  • Check the seals around your exterior doors. Replace if torn or missing. Don’t forget the door sweep. This is the vinyl strip attached to the bottom of the door. To replace this, the door may have to be taken off the hinges.


  • Fill cracks around doors, windows and trim with a quality caulk. Options are water based acrylic latex with silicone, solvent based urethane or elastomeric. Solvent based caulks supposedly hold up better for exterior use. DO NOT use 100% silicone.
  • Some caulks are available in different colors to better match your home. You can also use clear caulk, which comes out white but dries clear. If using the clear, wipe off excess with a damp cloth before it dries because it will have a glossy sheen to it.

Close crawl space vents

  • Closing these vents will prevent cold floors and keep water pipes from freezing.
  • Check the crawl entry door and make sure it’s closed.

Have a happy Fall!


Smart TV’s and Privacy

Smart TV’s and privacy

Smart is good. TV…good (well, some of it anyway). Privacy…good. But what about “Smart TV’s AND privacy?

Televisions have come a long way in the last few years. They’re thinner, lighter and smarter. If you have a “Smart” TV or thinking about buying one, there is something you should know. It could be spying on you. Saaay WHAT?

Does the tv you own (or thinking about buying) have voice recognition? Voice recognition means that your television can listen for commands. Commands such as “go to channel 32”. Pretty cool but does that mean it listens “all the time”? Well, sort of.

Does it have ACR (automatic content recognition)? This little feature basically tracks your viewing habits and can send that information off to a third party. Who is that third party and what do they do with that information? Hmm. If the TV has either one of these features, you should be able to turn these off if you have any privacy concerns.

Consumer Reports has an article about Smart TVs and privacy you may find useful. If any of the above information is inaccurate, please let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy viewing!


TV installation Indianapolis

TV installation Indianapolis and surrounding areas. Hire the services of a professional to get the results you want. A TV is an expensive appliance, so you want to make sure that the mounting is correct so there is no damage from falling. This is especially true for large, flat screen TVs. There are many reasons why it might be better for you to let a professional install your TV.

TV installation Indianapolis


1. Best TV Placement

Professionals are better able to determine the appropriate placement of your TV. Simply express your desires to the technician, and he or she will work to make sure you have your TV in a position that you like but is also the best for viewing. For instance, the place where you might have placed your TV (if you had installed it on your own) might not have been the best placement for it. A TV installation Indianapolis service will take things like viewing angle into consideration.

“A perfect example is, many people like to mount their TVs above their fireplaces but this is usually not recommended.”

However, in some cases it is the only option. The technician will determine if this is feasible. This article titled “Where should i put my TV?” may give you some tips.

2. Secure TV Mounting

Professionals are better able to securely mount your TV. They have the appropriate mounting supplies like brackets, nuts, bolts, drills, levels and other tools to ensure that your TV is securely mounted. On top of that, they are specially trained in the best procedures and techniques for securely mounting TVs to a wall with studs, brick or stone. Of course, you want to ensure that your TV is securely mounted so that it doesn’t fall and ruin the unit or even worse, injure someone.

3. Hiding Wires

Another reason why it might be in your best interest to hire professionals for your TV installation in Indianapolis is because they are capable of hiding any wires that you don’t want seen. Many people hate the appearance of wires poking out from behind their appliances, and if you attempt to install a TV on your own, you might not know the best way to hide the wires. Professional technicians can hide wires and give you a nice clean install.

Oftentimes, your TV is the focal point of the room. So, the best install will maintain the aesthetics of that room. Professional technicians possess the knowledge and skills for the best TV installation for Indianapolis.

4. Insured TV installation Indianapolis

A professional service will (or should) have insurance. So, just in case they make a mistake, you don’t have to worry about being out any money. Their insurance will take care of replacement and re-installation.

A New Installation Service

The old scenario:

You want something installed or replaced. You buy it online or through your favorite store. Then, you have to arrange for someone to install it. If you work during the day (like most people), that means you have to take off work or arrange for someone to be at your residence.

There IS another option.

The New Scenario:

To better serve customers who can’t take off of work, Indy Install Service is offering “after hours” and weekend installation of household items. Nice! We look forward to meeting YOUR needs.

We also welcome your comments and suggestions.
