Hot Louisville Summers - Keep This Outta the Garage
Three things that don't belong in a Louisville garage
by MIKE HALL, Owner/Broker/Agent
Okay, I'm not talking about a life-sized poster of Christian Laettner or a signed photo of Bob Huggins. (Inside choke for my UK and UofL fans.) So, what am I talking about - three common items found in garages that should be stored elsewhere.
1. A refrigerator or freezer. What?!?! Right. It's the most convenient place to store one of this frosty friends, but, you'll pay out the whaa-zoo for energy. Maybe not millions but you'll feel a little frostbite on your utilities.
2. Gasoline or oil. Excuse me, according Consumer Reports, over half of people keep their gas or oil in the garage. Well, you shouldn't. You're talking about the risk for a fire or explosion.
3. Paint of solvent. Temperatures that soar into the 90's or dip into the teens into the winter could damage the paint.
Just doing my part to keep my Louiville homeowners safe and richer. (Paint and utilities add up, friends.) Thanks to Consumer Reports for their article on this oft-neglected not-to-do list.
