Post Lamp Maintainance (New)
By on February 15, 2018
A multitude of violation letters have been mailed out recently with the topic of Post Lamps kept operational. This can be something as simple as bulb replacement to having to replace the photo sensor. Keeping the Post Lamp in operational condition includes the following.

-- Replacement of all burned out light bulb(s): If only one bulb is burning and the other 2 or 3 are not, you must replace the burned out bulb(s). Light sources must be “white” or incandescent. High-pressure sodium (yellow-orange) lights are prohibited. Flashing lights of any color are prohibited. LED lights are a great option for their longevity, but should be the lowest possble wattage (15-20 watts) to minimize glare.

--If the light does not come on at night: Replace the photo sensor and or check to see if the GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) is tripped. The GFI controlling the Lamp Post may be found in one of several locations: in the garage on a wall socket outlet; or in the electrical panel breaker box usuually located in the utility room, or on the wall just inside the utility room. If after these possibilities are ruled out, you may have a break in the line and you should contact a professional to repair.

--If a light stays on during the day: Usually signals that you need to replace the photo cell. Photo cell kits are available at any home repair/project store for minimum cost. And are relatively easy to replace.

--If your overall light fixture requires replacing (rusted, broken): You must replace with a new light fixture matching both the fixture being replaced and the light sconce on the side of the house near the main door. (Note: Only replace light fixtures with an existing type, style, size, color and consistency of the old fixture. You may have to go online, find the matching model, and order as most are not found at a local hardware store). Note: If you are still in possession of your original buyers binder, information on the outdoor lights (make, model, etc.) are located there.

Keeping your outdoor lighting in good operating conditions enhances the security of your home and helps in ensuring the well-being of our community as a whole by representing a uniform appearance.

Winterization Checklist for Your Home
By on January 2, 2018
1. Protect Your Pipes
To protect your pipes from bursting, disconnect and store outside garden hoses. If outside faucet has an indoor cut off, close the valve and drain the outside pipe. If you do not have an inside cut off valve, insulate the outside spigot with a Styrofoam cup made for covering up the spigot.

2. Time to Weatherproof
Weather-stripping or installing storm doors and windows will prevent cold air from entering your home or heat from escaping it, which will reduce your power bills.

3. Block the Cold
Caulk around windows and use foam outlet protectors to prevent cold air from entering your home. However, the majority of heat loss typically occurs via openings in the attic. Check to make sure that you have enough insulation.

4. Change Your Thermostat
Have you switched out your thermostat to a programmable version? If not, add this one to your list. A programmable thermostat lets you customize your heating so the system doesn't run when you don't need it. You can program the thermostat for one temperature when you're at home and another when you're away.

5. Bring in the Outdoor Furniture and Grill
Cold temperatures, snow and ice can damage outdoor furniture and grills. If possible, store them in the garage or basement. If you have a gas grill with a propane tank, close the tank valve and disconnect the tank first. It must be stored outside. If you don't have storage space for your items, purchase covers to protect them from the elements. You also need to maintain your grill and cover it before putting it away for the season.

6. Maintain your Outdoor Equipment
Outdoor power equipment such as mowers and string trimmers need to be cleaned and maintained prior to storing them. If you have a snow blower, it's time to inspect it before the first snowfall to ensure it's working properly. This is also a good time to stock up on ice melt.

7. Check/Clean Gutters
Gutters that are filled with leaves can cause ice-damming which will damage the roof line and cause additional damage in walls.
