Danberrys BACK TO SCHOOL 101

They’re Heading Back to School, Are You Ready?

Many Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan students are returning to school this week. Sure you did the supply shopping, bought new school uniforms, signed the permission slips for extracurricular activities, but what about after the whirlwind of that first day back? The bus just pulled away and the house has fallen quiet again, at least until 3 o’ clock. So now what?

school 1

It’s easy to get sucked into bad habits and after a long summer switching gears can be difficult for you and your little one. Keep yourself organized and schedules in check with a few handy Danberry Back To School Tips!

school 6

  • Set a Bed Time and Wake Up Time, and stick to it!

Children thrive when put on a routine. They can exercise independence when they have consistency in their day. If teeth brushing is always at 7:30 PM right before a bedtime TV show or book you may find they’re in the bathroom brushing away without reminder. In the mornings don’t touch that snooze button! If you and your child adjust to a morning routine as well daily stress will be reduced. Staying on a schedule gives you more free time to do what you want once responsibilities are handled. 

  • Cut Down on Those ‘First Time’ Jitters

Familiarize your child with the school grounds. A new grade can be intimidating but a whole new school can be even more stressful. If your child is entering into a new building walk them inside. Help them locate the main areas, the gym, cafeteria, nurses office, principals office, and bathrooms. Even if they are not going to a new building be sure they know the exterior grounds as well. Show them the best route if walking, the nearest emergency facility, recess areas, and so on. Any way you can reduce their worries about the little things the more they can focus on their learning.

  • Homework Check Ins

Check in to be certain they are bringing the needed work home. Being there to help with homework shows you are invested in their schooling and that they are being held responsible for their work.

  • Go Farther

Get involved in school events and activities can be a critical aspect of showing support and enthusiasm for your child’s learning experience. Participating in school activities is also a valuable way of connecting to the school community. You can learn a lot about the school just by talking to fellow parents.

school 3

  • Read With Them

Reading is always a wonderful way to connect with your child while adding a bit of education into the mix. You are spending time with them while keeping up with their school curriculum, a win-win!

school 2

 

And the most important tip of all enjoy this time with your kids, they are only this young for so long. Whether they are starting this year in Kindergarten or as a Senior in High School they are only that age once. Enjoy your time with family and everyone have a safe and happy school year!

Standard water heaters often run out of hot water, forcing residents to wait for more to be heated. Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water as they can produce it at a constant rate on demand.If you are selling an older home, there is always a possibility that either your agent or a prospective buyer will ask that you upgrade an old appliance or two. And even if you are planning to stay in your home, one appliance that may be in need of replacement is a water heater, as most models have an expected lifespan of about 10 years. While you may be tempted to buy the lease expensive model available to serve your needs, there is a new option worth considering: a tankless water heater.

What are tankless water heaters?
Traditional water heaters work by filling a large tank with cold water, which is then heated using gas or electricity. These heaters work well, and have been around for years, but waste a considerable amount of energy.

Tankless water heaters work by heating water as it is requested. When you turn on the hot water tap to take a shower, the heater detects the requested flow of water, calculates the amount of heat necessary to take cold water almost instantly to the desired temperature and uses electricity or gas to produce that heat.

Pros
A traditional water heater must keep the water in the tank hot 24/7, meaning that a lot of energy goes to waste while the water is just sitting there. They also need to keep water in the tank much hotter in order to kill bacteria – not an issue with tankless water heaters.

Standard water heaters often run out of hot water, forcing residents to wait for more to be heated. Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water as they can produce it at a constant rate on demand.

Because of the increased energy efficiency of tankless water heaters, water heating costs can be reduced by between 8 percent and 40 percent, depending upon the age of their previous heater and the average local groundwater temperature.

Cons
First and foremost, tankless water heaters are expensive. A traditional water heater might cost a few hundred dollars – significantly less than the $1,000 to $2,000 price tag for tankless water heaters. Over time, these heaters may pay for themselves with energy savings, but the payback period is usually significant.

While tankless heaters never run out of hot water, they can be overtaxed. Only high end models can produce five gallons of hot water at once - enough to take a shower and run the dishwasher concurrently, but not enough to do laundry at the same time.

Finally, tankless water heaters require more maintenance, especially in areas with hard water.

The bottom line
Whether you are selling your home or planning to stay for a while, if it’s time to replace your water heater, you may find yourself weighing the pros and cons of replacing with a tankless water heater. If selling, it is always a good idea to speak with your Realtor about ROI. In some areas, particularly those in which residents care about their carbon footprint, you may be able to see a return on your investment.

If you do opt to purchase a tankless water heater, a home warranty plan is a good option for further increasing the desirability of your home to potential buyers.

4 great ideas for your outdoor living area

A fire pit can really accent an outdoor living space.

Summer is a busy season. Whether it’s increased travel, vacationing, traffic or shopping, it seems like more people are interested in getting things done. Even home buying tends to increase as the temperatures climb.

Speaking of which, many of today’s homeowners have decks attached to their residences or plan on building one to use as an outdoor living area. In fact, based on a survey done by Harris Interactive, consumers said they intend to spend more on their outdoor living spaces this year than in 2013.

“Outdoor living spaces have evolved from a grill and a picnic table to lavishly landscaped patios and decks with couches, lounge areas and dining spaces under shaded arches, trellises, and porticos,” said Sabeena Hickman, CEO of landscaping trade association Planet. “It is a trend that we expect to continue indefinitely. Americans have had a long love affair with the backyard barbeque, and now, they are taking it to the next level.”

But your outdoor living space this summer doesn’t have to be confined to the square footage of a deck. There’s no limit to how you can set one up – only your imagination. To give you a few ideas, check out some of these suggestions from a landscaping trade group.

1. Bring your kitchen outdoors.  Talk to any landscaping professional, and they’ll tell you that full-scale outdoor kitchens are more popular today than ever before. How extensive you want your kitchen to be is up to you, as the more comprehensive ones include tables, countertops and preparation areas made of brick, stone or concrete.

2. Accent with lighting. It’s amazing what some strategically placed lighting can do for an outdoor living area, helping to establish a calm and peaceful mood. Landscapers refer to this as “lightscaping.” These can be done professionally or there are also solar walkway lights that are ideal for do-it-yourselfers.

3. Set up an herb or flower garden. If you want to set up an outdoor living space for social gatherings, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better conversation starter than with a wildflower or herb garden. You’d be surprised how many people do gardening as a hobby. In fact, after building one, your fellow greenthumbs may offer some suggestions on how to make it even better.

4. Add a fireplace. Cool summer nights are ideal for toasting marshmallows over an open fire. What’s also great about them is that they don’t have to be stationed in one part of your backyard. Known as chimineas, these fire pits are portable, so you can bring the fire to you rather than the other way around.
