Before you know it the weather will go
from spring to summer and instead of cool mornings and pleasant
afternoons it will be muggy and hot. Get your home ready by having
the best ceiling fans that will keep you cool and comfortable without
putting the squeeze your energy pocketbook.
Regency Fans have
come out with several new fans that I want to talk to you about.
Vail Fan is a 52” DC motor fan( runs even more
economically) that has 6 speeds and a 14 degree pitch on the blades.
Vail comes with a remote, a 2700K warm white LED light kit
and in four finishes of nickel, oil rubber bronze, matte black and
white. The white, bronze and black fans can be used either inside
or outside so they are very versatile. If you have a big patio with
large outdoor areas check out the new
Vantage Fan. It is an 8
blade fan that is 66 inches from blade tip to tip with a 12.5 degree
of pitch on the blade. The
Vantage comes with a remote, 2700K
LED light kit and when you have the fan cranked up to the highest
speed you better make sure things are nailed down! It moves an
unbelievable amount of air that will keep you comfortable even during
th of July. One of the prettiest outdoor fans that
Regency has is the
Andros fan. It is 52” fan with a 14
degree pitch a “vintage” looking light kit and remote. Another
new fan for inside is the
Hover Fan. It has the same light
kit as the new outdoor fans with 6 speedsand a remote. You have a
choice of blades on this fan from dark walnut, silver or cherry. The
blades are 56” from tip to tip and have a 14 degree pitch so if you
are wondering if this fan can keep you cool this summer -the answer
is YES!! I just wanted you to be informed about what is available –

Question: My renters put 1” holes in
the tile of the shower. Is there any product that can fill that hole
that is made in the porcelain tile?
Answer: You have two options, there is
a product called
Mildew Free Sealant that comes in white and
in off white. You could fill the holes and make it flush with the
tile. This sealant is guaranteed not to mildew for 7 years and will
keep moisture from going behind the tile and causing damage. I did
this in my shower. The only other option is to replace the tile.
Question: Last year we had some damage
to a ceiling in a closet from the over flow pan of the air
conditioner. It was expensive an so unnecessary. Besides putting
bleach down that tiny pipe by the unit is there a way to keep the
algae from building up again so we don’t have that problem?
Answer: Use the Actabs EE. If
the drain gets slow and the water starts to rise in the pan the
Actabs EE will release a drain cleaner until the water level
goes back down again. Just put the packet in the back of the pan,
with the holes down. It’s a good thing to throw up in the pan at
the start of the summer season.
Question: Trudy, how do I clean a
glass oven door without using a product that produces tons of fumes.
I can’t take the smell of those cleaners.
Answer: Use the Holy Cow
Spray it on the cool oven door and let it sit for a while. Then use
a 3M scrubby sponge to clean with, rinse well and wipe dry. The
will even take grease off car engines!
Question: I have a front loading
washing machine, and the rubber gasket smells. It will make my whole
machine stink! What can I do?
Answer: Spray the rubber with Bio
and then leave the door of the washer open when you are not
