Read this to find out what gable fan is best for you

Gable fan being installed

Are you looking for ways to reduce home cooling costs? This is one of the main reasons people buy gable fans. A gable fan mounts behind your attic gable vent and pushes all that hot air out of your attic on warmer days. This summer I had a chance to install two different gable fans, a solar model and a plug in powered model. Overall, both fans have really helped keep the house cooler, and our air conditioner comes on much less frequently. But what gable fan works best? There are a few key decision factors to weigh, but for me, noise was one of the biggest.

The types of Gable Fans I compared:


I did some shopping (and asking) around and narrowed my choice to the two gable fans listed above...

Facebook removes photo comments feature on pages, brings them back after adding support

Actions you can do on Facebook

Update:
Faceback once again has brought back user photo comments, as of July. After adding a feature toggle switch for this in admin panel and adding API support, it looks like this feature is here to stay. I think Facebook did the right thing in this case, they reserve the right to experiment and try new things, but also do right by their customers and are reasonable with business requests. Nice work FB 🙂

How to break into a truck

Slim Jim a car

Thanks for showing me how to break into a truck Rob!
Rob locked his keys in his truck accidentally, whoops. Looks like it’s happened to him before, he was able to break into his truck in record time. Watching this video is like a roller coaster ride, but in the end, all ends well.

Hampton Bay Windward remote repair

Hampton Bay Windward fan thumbnail

We recently installed some new ceiling fans in our house which really help to keep things cool in the summer time. I installed a white Hampton Bay Windward in our old house and we never had problems with it for 6 years. So, I decided to install the Hampton Bay Windward IV in our new place. These fans are good quality and pretty easy to install. I did the close to ceiling install which is a little trickier, but if you take your time and make sure you hide the wires properly, the close to ceiling install turns out quite nice. Once we were done, the remote had about a 1-2 foot range only! Talk about frustrating. So, as with most similar issues I went online to see if we could find a solution for a Hampton Bay Windward remote repair, plus we also contacted Hampton Bay.
