Learning All About Painting Your Home

Hello, I'm Marc Victors. I am excited to talk to you about painting your home. I loved to change the look of my home on a regular basis by using just a bit of paint. There are a wide range of paint options for every room. Therefore, it's important to know how to select the best type of paint for each area. For example, high gloss paint should only be used in the kitchen or bathroom since those areas need frequent cleaning to stay in good shape. Using high gloss in the bedrooms or living areas gives the space a harsh sheen when the lights are turned on. Please use the information on my site to select and use the right paint for the job. Also follow my site to learn how to correct apply the paint to the walls. Thanks.

3 Common Clothes Dryer Problems And How They Are Fixed

by Terry Fernandez

Having a dryer at home makes life so much simpler. It is much easier to toss clothing into your own dryer than to lug it back and forth from a laundromat. Sometimes, your dryer may develop one of the following issues, which a dryer repair company can address.

The dryer runs and tumbles, but never gets hot.  

Have you put your clothes in for several rounds, only to have them come out damp at the end? The next time you try to dry your clothing, stop the cycle in the middle and feel how warm your clothes are. If they are cool, that means the dryer is not heating. There are a few possible causes of this, but usually, the issue comes down to the thermal fuse. It may have popped due to an electrical overload. This sometimes happens if the dryer vent gets blocked, or if you overload the dryer.

A dryer repair company can remove and replace the thermal fuse. It's a small and inexpensive part and almost always worth fixing. You'll also want to take steps to ensure it does not blow again. Move items and landscaping away from your dryer vent, and make sure you're drying manageably sized loads.

The dryer gets warm, but not warm enough.

Does your dryer seem to be getting slightly warm, but not warm enough to effectively dry your clothes? One of the heating elements might be blown or the heating element may be on the verge of failure. This can be caused by a blocked lint screen, or by simple wear and tear over the years. Replacing a heating element is a bigger repair. It's worth making if your dryer is newer and in otherwise good shape, or if it is covered under warranty. But if your dryer is old, you may be better off just buying a new one.

The dryer turns on and off quickly.

This is most likely to happen with a gas dryer. They have a sensor that tells whether there is a flame and turns off the flow of gas when there is no flame. This sensor is called a thermocouple. If it breaks, which is pretty common, the dryer will turn off because the gas flow keeps getting turned off. Luckily, the thermocouple is a small and inexpensive part to have replaced. 

If your dryer is not working correctly, contact a company like Acutech Appliance Heating and Air.
