Fall Maintenance Checklist for Your Home

Autumn’s crisp air and brightly painted leaves are just around the corner. It’s a beautiful season, and a great time to perform maintenance tasks before winter’s cold and snow set in. Take care of these things to keep your home in top shape.

Interior

Most people think of yard work when they visualize fall, but inspecting the interior of your home is just as important as the outside.

-Have an HVAC professional check your furnace for performance and carbon monoxide leaks. In addition, change your heater’s filter and stock up on enough new filters to change them every month during the winter.

-Inspect and clean the heating ducts and vents. You don’t want to find your toddler’s missing toy via the scent of melting plastic wafting through the air.

Choosing the Right Flooring for Your Home

With so many flooring options available, selecting the right type for your home can be a little overwhelming. However, there are some ways to narrow down your choices. You can be sure that you’ve made the right decision when you take into consideration your family’s lifestyle, the room’s use, and your budget.

Narrowing Down the Selection

Answer these questions to find the right fit for your home.

  1. What is your lifestyle? Do you have kids or indoor pets? Both tend to be harder on floors, so you’ll want something that will stand up to a lot of wear.
  2. What’s the purpose of the room? While wood floors might look great in the kitchen, installing wood in the bathroom may not be a good idea.

Top Billboard Hits of 2014

Being at the top of the Billboard charts is a goal that every musical artist strives to achieve. Making a hit song is something that leaves an artist remembered. Even one solid hit is enough to make most artists a household name. 

How It is Determined

When determining the top hits, there are a few things that are taken into account. A good beat alone isn’t enough to make a song one of the best. It is a combination of single sales, radio airplay, digital downloads and streaming activity that determines the popularity of a song. 

When the Billboard charts were first created, they were greatly affected by whether a label was promoting a particular single. Songs had a more difficult time staying on the charts before 1991 because of the system being used to determine their popularity. Now, they use Nielsen SoundScan to prevent this from happening.
