Factors To Help You Go For The Right Towel Radiator

Do you want to buy a towel radiator? If so, you may want to keep a few things in mind, such as the heating capacity, wall space, hanging space, design and usage capacity. There is no need to mention that the price will also be an important factor to take into account, but it shouldn’t be the most important factor on the list when making the buying decision. Let’s find out more.

1) Wall space

Since radiators come in different sizes, you can choose one based on your needs. For this, you can measure the available wall space. Usually, full-size devices require a good deal of wall space. On the other hand, smaller units require a little bit of space in the bathroom.

Some units even can be fit at the backside of the bathroom door. So, you may want to go for a smaller unit if your bathroom doesn’t have a lot of space.

2) Heating capacity

The radiator’s heating capacity is the first factor you should keep in mind. If the rail is the only heat source for your bathroom, you may want to look for one with a good deal of heating capacity. Ideally, the device should be able to heat up your whole bathroom.

To check the capacity of the device, you can read the specifications. You can also figure out the output on your own. On the other side, if your bathroom has some other type of heating systems, like a quality under-floor heater, you can use a radiator with less output power.

3) Hanging space

How many towels do you want to hang in your bathroom? The answer to this question will decide the amount of hanging space you will need. For communal bathrooms, you will need bigger rails as they offer more hanging space. Homes, on the other side, may need little hanging space.

4) Design

Based on your needs and preference, you can choose from a variety of towel warmer designs. a radiator with a unique design will be an ideal choice should you want something that will look different.

On the other hand, you can choose a simple one should your bathroom is small. By simple design, we mean a design that will blend well with the design of your bathroom.

5) Usage

Usage frequency is another important factor to keep in mind. If you are going to use the radiator throughout the year in both summer and winter, we suggest that you opt for an electric heater. Hydronic radiators are heated up with the help of hot-water systems, so you can also buy this type of heater.

6) Finish

Towel radiators come in a wide assortment of finishes, such as sleek chrome, mate and funky colors. Make sure you go for a finish that will suit the color scheme and the theme of the bathroom. No matter what finish you go for, it shouldn’t have a negative impact on the radiator’s performance.

5 Home Improvements That Really DO Recover Value

HGTV considers the following home-enhancements to be among top-tier choices for regaining the most pay-back. Though not exhaustive, this list includes some of the most popular home-improvements as well as some of the most enjoyable, once renovation is complete.

1. Modernized Kitchens

A state-of-the-art kitchen is a very coveted renovation for earning back most of the monetary investment. Even if you were to not gut the entire kitchen, there are certain upgrades that are zealously prized by potential buyers: granite counter-tops, hardwood or stone (not tile) floors, premium appliances, islands, and under-mount sinks.

RECOUP:

A kitchen remodel can return more than 100%.

2. New or Renewed Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood floors are a favorite with discriminating buyers; and if your older home has original hardwood floors and they are in decent shape, you are in luck! Have them lightly sanded, stained and resealed-you would be amazed at how stunning they can appear, once again, at a fraction of the cost of new hardwood flooring. Wood floors in pristine condition add that ‘wow’ factor that can be a deal-breaker for home-buyers.

RECOUP:

Hardwood floors can bring back 2-times their cost! Conservatively, hardwood floors will bring in 100-150% return on investment.

3. Additional Square Footage

For every 1,000 square feet of actual living space that are added onto a home, the sale price can be boosted by more than 30%, according to the National Association of Realtors. Whether it is a spacious attic bedroom or a dedicated entertainment space, the ROI is quite impressive.

RECOUP:

Attic bedrooms and family/entertainment rooms can recoup between 70% and 80%.

4. Optimized Curb Appeal

If people drive by your home and are not impressed with what their eyes immediately see, chances are they may never give the inside of your home a single opportunity to strut its stuff. Curb appeal is synonymous with ‘first impression’. Make your home’s curb appeal eye-catching enough that it actually makes a statement that conveys a warm sense of ‘welcome’! That message draws people in, both, physically and psychologically.

Add beautiful beds of flowers, potted plants and trees to your property; and have them positioned in strategic locations to transform your home’s exterior from ‘frumpy’ to ‘fabulous’. Group plants by height; and layer the groupings for visual appeal. Your grassy areas should be lush and thick; and investing in a good edger to keep your property looking exquisitely manicured will impress even the most-persnickety buyers.

Curb appeal is not limited, only, to vegetation. Making sure your driveway and sidewalks are in good shape is equally important. If your concrete areas have seen better days, and if cracks or any bulging or separation is apparent, consider replacement or professional repair. If sidewalks and the driveway are in good shape and just need a facelift, staining or painting those areas with highly-durable, concrete-specific products will do wonders to add a fresh, renewed look! Also, tasteful outside lighting “paints” your home at night; and retaining walls add color and texture to wide stretches of green and give any property a very fortified appearance. Curb appeal can make the difference between a home that sells quickly at top dollar verses one that languishes for months.

RECOUP:

Clean and classy curb appeal can contribute a whopping 20% to the total property value of a home. If done right, the ROI with curb appeal can be double the initial, total expense.

5. New Windows

The energy efficiency of installing higher-end windows is an unarguable benefit. Replacement costs will be determined by the number of windows being replaced as well as the type, of course. This is one home-improvement that home-buyers place a high premium on.

RECOUP:

A return of investment of at least 79% is very realistic.

There are certain improvements that are, definitely, worth the investment when it comes to helping attract more buyers, helping you to sell your home quicker, helping you retrieve most or all of your investment, and helping to optimize your home’s true market value. It is vital, however, to not over-improve out of your particular neighborhood since reclaiming your investment will, likely, not materialize. You don’t want to fall into the trap of out-pricing your home, out of all other homes in your area, by a wide margin.

What you get back on your investment will depend on the value of your home, the value of homes in your immediate area, the housing market where you live, how soon you sell after making home-improvements and the quality of each project involved.

Home Insulation at Different Climatic Conditions

Attic insulation is one of the home improvement processes which are done to keep the temperature moderate inside the house. The insulation is done most probably in extreme hot and cold climatic conditions. The purpose of insulation is the same but the types and style of insulation employed is entirely different. Insulation is also done for secondary reasons like pest resistant, noise barrier, energy saver, reduction of utility bills, etc… The below paragraphs shows the type of insulation based on the seasons. The insulation is done either in the hot climatic region or cold climatic region.

Insulation in hot climatic areas: In a hot climatic condition, the hot air enters and accumulates into the house through wall, attic, etc… and lets the cool air to pass out. This happens despite using the electronic cooling equipment which in turn increases the usage and shows rapid increase in the utility bill. Insulating the house will prevent the let-out of cool air. As the radiation level is more in hot temperatures, the insulation also serves as the radiation barrier. The types of insulation used in a hot climate are listed below.

Blown-in attic insulation: As the name suggests, the insulation is implemented by blowing the insulation in the wall or roof in high pressure with the special equipments. Blown-in insulation is done in all types of insulation materials like fiberglass, cellulose and rock wool. There are three main type of blown in insulation used, they are loose fill, wall cavity spray and stabilized type. Blown-in cellulose insulation is the eco-friendly process of insulation, as the material is made from the recycled paper. They are cheaper and can easily fill into the small air spaces and this insulation is implemented in the walls, attic floors and small and tiny places.

Rolled-in insulation: Unlike blown-in, this is the flat piece like insulation materials available in layers. The small layer of materials is taken and the space is filled. This comes under the blanket category. The insulation material used in this type is the fiberglass and rock wool. They carry negative effect in filling the small spaces. This type is very expensive and can be handled easily even by the less experienced workers. Rolled-in insulation doesn’t require the special type of equipment for the installation. They can be implemented in walls and flat floors and ceiling which are devoid of gaps and wires.

Insulation for cold climate: In a cold climatic condition, the reverse reaction happens (i.e.) the cold air let in and hot air let out will be more. Folks attempt simple things like using a furnace to produce heat, use of hot ACs and other electronic devices to keep the temperature warm but the insulation serves the purpose well, as they seal even the small minute portion of the house. In case of cold climates, it is wise to opt for the solar paired with the insulation, which doubles the benefit. The insulation implementation type varies depending on the architecture of the house and certain other factors. The most used Insulation type adapted in cold climate is explained below:

Loose fill insulation: Loose fill represents the flexibility of the materials used. The loose fill cellulose insulation is always preferred for the type of insulation for the winter season. The loose fill is blown with the special equipment that they can stick and get filled in the small spaces. This used most often in crawl spaces and the knee walls of the attic. They can be applied to the spaces till the specified thickness is reached. This is a very inexpensive type of insulation and required skilled labor for the installation. This type of insulation is not recommended for the finished buildings and attics.

Basic Clearing Ritual: Energy and Space Clearing With Charcoal

Energy and space clearing dates back to the ancients. It is impossible to trace who first created and developed the practice, because this is a ritual present in all cultures around the world.

There are many ways to conduct a clearing. I discovered using charcoal by accident. I had carefully kept a bag containing several pieces in my bedroom at our ancestral. Now, I have been here for about a month, and had been performing intensive clearing. I already had a couple of charcoals positioned in different areas of my room (for about two to four years, I cannot recall the exact number). But I originally placed them there for a different purpose. Thus, I was surprised when I came into the room and chanced upon the this. As soon as I swung open the door, it gobbled up a field of energy into it. I was completely taken aback that I immediately bent down to inspect this.

Facts confirmed, I set off at once to arrange several of them in different areas of the house. Similar to crystals, they are an interesting and unique form of consciousness all on their own. Getting acquainted with them was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had as an energy worker. I also learned more about salts in the process, but let us save that for another topic.

I recommend three ways of using charcoals for energy and space clearing. Let us go over each one.

Initial General Clearing Session

When working with charcoal for the first time…

Do this both inside and outside your house (or any space you want to clear). Focus especially on the very dense rooms for about two days to two weeks.

I. Prepare a bowl or tray laid with salt (sea rock, Epsom, or Himalayan pink salts). Place five or more pieces of charcoal blocks on top of the salts. If you are clairsentient, get a feel of how concentrated the density of the place is. This will help you estimate how many pieces you actually need.

II. Bless the bowl/s of charcoal with your intention.

III. Leave the bowl or tray on top of a high cabinet or table. Or place it close to the window or door of the room/s.

It is ideal to do this for all rooms within the house (or building/site). But if you do not have the liberty of doing so, do this for the rooms you have access to.

IV. Make sure to recharge the charcoals, together with the salts, daily. There are two simple ways to do this:

1. Light up a candle and place the bowl/s of charcoal close to it.

2. Place the bowl/s of charcoal under direct sunlight.

V. Clear out the charcoals and salts approximately after five, seven, or 14 days. Do this depending on how dense the site is.

For an extremely dense spaces, you may have to clear out the charcoal sooner. For such instances, it is best to combine this with a burning clearing ritual (bonfire or burning bowl). Howbeit, I recommend using charcoals prior to burning ceremony, because they have two different functions.

A period of at least two days to two weeks before the ceremony will allow the charcoals to “absorb” the low frequency energetic fields. This gives you some time to go through an observation period of the situation you are actually dealing with. At the same time, you get rid of most of what you do not have to deal with.

The bonfire/burning bowl procedure makes use of the element of fire, which is quintessential to ultimately disposing the charcoals. Lighting up fire also provides the crucial “closing energy” to the process; it breaks through the fields and consumes any remnants.

It is crucial to permanently clear out the bowl/s of charcoal by burning them. Do not just cast them out or throw them in the trash. When performing the burning clearing ceremony, remember to bless and thank the pieces of charcoal (and salts) for assisting the process.

Repeat this entire process as necessary, especially for very toxic, dense sites.

Using Charcoal for Maintenance (Space Energy Support)

Do this only after you have done the previous step above.

I. Arrange a new set of charcoals (with salts). Similarly place them in bowls or trays.

II. Place them in unobtrusive places (such as on top of a high cabinet) or on the window sill. It is best to place them where there is direct sunlight (this allows them to recharge… thereby prolonging their use) or where they can get a lot of ventilation (this also supports their recharging by giving them enough “breathing space”). If you have a patio in front or behind your house, this is also an ideal location to place them.

Take a moment to assess where you place them. They are very responsive to all the elements within their environment. Put them in pretty bowls and trays. Surround them with flowers and other inspiring items or colors (they respond positively to bright colors).

However, if you work with Selenites, it is best to use them separately and to keep them apart, especially in instances when you are clearing a very dense site.

A warning particularly for the clairsentient: It is best to position the charcoals where they are not too close to you. If you would like to have a bowl close to your work table, select a spot that is at least six meters away from you. Make sure there is sufficient ventilation and sunlight. An open window would be the ideal location.

Eventually, as the energy of the place improves and clears up, it will be best to move the charcoals from their usual places. Apart from the patio, place them at the highest windows (if you have a second floor). Keep a bowl with at least two pieces at the bathroom/s, kitchen, living room, and areas where you receive and entertain visitors.

III. Recharge them daily or weekly, especially if you keep them in dim places. (See above for process.) Recharging them prolongs their use.

IV. Clear out your charcoals regularly by burning them. Similar to the process above, it is best to clear them out by performing a burning clearing ritual.

To Alleviate Body Pain

Please note that this is not to provide permanent healing to any area of the body that is painful or ill. This serves as a first aid procedure. Please use your power of discernment and intellect as well to judge whether the circumstance is appropriate or not.

Let us quickly go through the dynamic behind this. This will give you a better idea if a situation is suitable or not. As explained above, charcoal “absorbs” low frequency energy. And then it literally breaks it down, within it. It goes on by processing these structures (similar to digesting) until it fully extinguishes the microcosmic low frequency structures. This can take awhile. That is why fire is the best way to permanently clear charcoals. Fire does exactly the same thing within a faster timeframe.

It is best not to use charcoals to lessen any ascension-related symptoms during extreme portal passages. A specific instance is when you realize that a lot of energy clearing is going on with your body and ether fields. Charcoal may only hasten and bolster the clearing process (more than what your physical body can manage), causing more soreness than ease.

I am very sensitive to food. But I am not a huge fan of prescription medication. I have used charcoal a number of times to relieve me of the “butterflies in my stomach” feeling I get often.

For the purpose of alleviating body aches…

Take a block/piece of charcoal and place it on the area that is painful. Leave it there for as long as necessary. When done, recharge or burn the charcoal immediately.

After recharging, store it for future use in a properly sealed container. This will keep it from absorbing energies in its environment. It is recommendable to choose an ornate or plain bright colored box/bag.

Whether you decide to store or burn it, remember to thank and bless the charcoal. Ask the Angelic-Archangelic to permanently clear out the energies.
