We’ve been discussing ways to keep your home safe while you’re on vacation this summer.

Tip #1 How to set your AC while on vacation

Tip #2 What to do with your water while on vacation

Tip #3 What to do about appliances, electronics and your smoke detectors

Tip #4 What to do with your mail

And today’s tip:

Tip #6 Don’t announce your vacation on social media! We now live in a world where everyone announces almost everything on social media and unfortunately this isn’t always a good thing.  Sadly, there are criminals that scan Facebook, Twitter and other channels looking to find out who is going to be out of town in your area. So be smart and wait until AFTER vacation is over to post pictures of your fun times!

While You’re Away… by Central Carolina Air Conditioning Greensboro NC

Posted on: June 11th, 2015 by CCAir No Comments

Think your house is ready for vacation while you’re away? Think again.

Earlier we posted about how to set your thermostat.

But did you know that you should turn off your water at the main valve as well? Lots of floods happen in the home when people are away. Many families lose all their belongings when water lines break and water floods their home!

Central Carolina Air Conditioning, Electrical and Plumbing will soon offer a home automation system where you can do all of this right from your phone! You’ll be able to just hit a button that is called “Vacation Mode” and all of this happens for you and it can turn on lights at certain times to make it look like someone is home.

But for now, remember to adjust that thermostat correctly AND turn off the water at the main water valve! Happy Vacationing!

Is Your Home Ready for Vacation by Central Carolina Air Conditioning Greensboro NC

While you might be ready for vacation, will your home be ready when you leave?  Most people don’t put enough thought into securing their home while they’re away!

Tip #1

Only turn your air conditioning up by 3-4 degrees at most! Most people think they should crank it up 10 degrees since no one will be home to enjoy it but this actually causes more stress on the unit when you return!

Letting the AC unit run consistently over a period of time on one temperature is actually more efficient in the long run and better on the environment and your wallet than turning it up and down drastically.

Stay tuned as we talk more about getting your home ready for vacation this month! Also be sure to check back for details about our big contest coming up!

This Memorial Day weekend, we honor our fallen heroes that bravely served in our military forces. We are grateful to you and your families for your service and great sacrifice.

Originally named Decoration Day, this federal holiday originated after the Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. However, by the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who died while in the military service.

America is the greatest nation on earth and we are thankful to those who fought to get us where we are today!

Did Eleanor Roosevelt have Air Conditioning by Central Carolina Air Conditioning

Did you know the first modern electrical air conditioning unit was invented by Willis Carrier in Buffalo, New York in 1902, after Eleanor Roosevelt was born in 1884? Aren’t you glad that we live in a time with modern conveniences such as air conditioning, plumbing and electric?

This mother of six was married to our 32nd President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, affectionately known as FDR. One must wonder how hard it must have been to raise that many children during that time period! Having survived a tough childhood, Eleanor lost both parents at an early age and didn’t have the happiest childhood sadly, which is one reason she may have wanted a big family.

Eleanor also encountered difficulty with her mother-in-law Sara Ann Delano who originally tried to break the two up before they wed! And Sara even tried to run Eleanor’s household as their townhomes (a gift from Franklin’s mother in Hyde Park, New York) were adjoined by a sliding door for the first ten years of their marriage!

However, Eleanor had a strong disposition and helped her husband run for political office even after he was stricken with polio, permanently paralyzing his legs.  Eleanor worked tirelessly for women’s rights, child labor laws and for educational rights while becoming a strong voice in the Democratic party.

Yet another famous mother in history that we salute this May!

Be sure to take care of your mother and make sure her home is safe and sound! Call us if we can help your family with air conditioning, plumbing or electrical needs!

We have decided to continue to celebrate Mother’s Day this year throughout all of May. We thought it might be fun here at Central Carolina Air Conditioning to share a little about a few famous women in history that became Mothers.

Did you know Katharine Martha Houghton Hepburn (mother to famous daughter and Hollywood icon Katharine Hepburn) left behind a considerable legacy when she died in 1951? Following her own mother’s  advice to pursue an education, Hepburn earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and history in 1899 and a masters in chemistry and physics in 1900,both from Bryn Mawr college, which was an uncommon academic achievement for a woman at the time [source: Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame]. Mother to six children, Katharine Martha & husband education their six children on standing up for women’s rights.

And how could you not love Coretta Scott King, famous widow of Martin Luther King Jr and single mother to four children Yolanda, Martin, Dexter and Bernice.  Picking up her husband’s famous stance on racial equality and civil rights, Coretta  balanced a life of travel speaking and lobbying the US government for a federal holiday commemorating her husband’s life and work (signed into existing by President Ronald Reagan in 1983 source: Applebome) while raising her children.  Additionally, Coretta she founded The King Center in Atlanta, Georgia to promote non-violent social change famously espoused by Martin Luther King Jr.

Two mothers that made great strides in life and left lasting legacies.
