On average, an employee spends about 30 minutes each day on a lunch break and then has additional breaks during the day. This is a great time to unwind, relax a little, and prepare for the rest of the work shift. Instead of purchasing a typical table and chairs, you can enhance your break room so that employees have multiple options for relaxing and fully enjoying the time. The following four pieces of office furniture can be added to a break room and really change the way that employees value their free time.
There are many reasons to love having a fireplace in your house. After all, what's cozier than snuggling up on the couch in front of a roaring fire on a winter night? However, a fireplace isn't exactly the greenest way to heat up your house. A larger carbon footprint is a definite drawback of using a fireplace for heat. You won't be able to make burning wood into a completely clean heat source, but there are things you can do to improve the eco-friendliness of your home's fireplace.
Banging sounds, funny smells and lack of heat are all signs that it is time to consider replacing your old furnace. You may not think that choosing a furnace is an important decision, but it turns out that your furnace can have a big impact on your energy bills. The United States Department of Energy reports that the energy required for heating and cooling a home is more than half the total energy used in an average US home.
Even if you are not good at most types of yardwork, you can still have a yard that is green, plush, and thick.

As a teenager, I joined my local swim team and soon became a champion swimmer. I have been swimming my entire life, and my love for water pushed me to purchase a home with a large in-ground pool. Strangely enough, after years of swimming I had no idea how to take care of the pool. I knew that I needed to add chemicals to get rid of potentially dangerous bacteria, and I also knew that chemicals kept algae at bay. I didn't know how to choose from hydrogen peroxide, salt, or chlorine additives. I definitely had no idea about shock, and I didn't know how many chemicals to add. After some trial and error, a very green pool, and a necessary draining, I figured it out. I have compiled for you a number of blogs and resources so you do not have to make costly mistakes like me.
