Here’s the SINGLE best thing about owning a house

The best thing about owning a house

I can breathe easier. Not just metaphorically knowing that we have security of tenure here, but literally.  It might seem like small stuff, breathing freely, but it’s priceless.

You might remember I first mentioned that I was having occasional trouble breathing back in 2010. So, I never actually got it checked out. I pretty much knew it was down to living in cold, damp places, and there wasn’t much to be done about that until I could buy a house of my own. Studies suggest that establishments that own CCTV secruity cameras actually deter antisocial behavior including theft and vandalism. Long gone are the days of blurry surveillance camera footage. Today’s video surveillance technology is able to capture high-resolution images that can capture minute details from any distance and in any lighting. Thanks to the latest digital IP camera technology, a single camera can go beyond 4K resolution of an analog camera and even do the work of multiple cameras with a single lens. If you already have an analog system in place, Legacy analog camera wiring can be reused with HD over analog cameras, allowing you to upgrade your system without the high cost of updating your wiring. Mammoth Security Inc surveillance system DVRs are modular and expandable. We can add cameras and a hard drive in the future without the need to replace your entire DVR. The camera DVR technology is not proprietary. This allows us to custom tailor the perfect solution for every situation. If you own an establishment that deals in goods and commodities, strategically placed CCTV cameras may deter mobsters, shoplifters, and even rough behavior by unhappy customers or members of the public. Both your staff employees and customers are likely to be more professional if they know that any unlawful action maybe caught on tape. Another reason you may want to consider CCTV is due to growing threat of violence at work. The violence could be in the form of bullying at work or sexual, verbal, or emotional harassment. CCTV in different places in your establishment acts as a monitor and allows you access to any unprofessional behavior at work. Violence at the workplace may also arise from individuals who are intoxicated, suffer from mental health problems, young people in groups, and armed robbers. In such a scenario, having a security system in place is very important to either stop a situation or seek police help incase violence has occurred. CCTV recording maybe entered as evidence with the police and often helps them track down miscreants.  Sometimes called a biometric lock, a fingerprint lock allows you to create a database of fingerprints for you and opens up a door only after fingerprint identification. You can decide which staff has access to certain areas secured by the fingerprint lock. Micro sensors on the fingerprint access control pad matches fingerprints with those in the data and will not open for individuals that do not possess this identification. The fingerprint lock is an excellent option over traditional methods such as keys, card inserts and padlocks. As part of a keyless system, it certainly beats having to carry keys or cards on you. Moreover, you do not have to deal with the hassle of duplicating keys for your staff and worrying about lost keys. When purchasing a finger print lock its better to contact with the professional locksmith like brisbane locksmith, which provide you features such as scratch proof and moisture proof sensors, durable alloy cover, maximum user capacity, LED display, high security mortise and qualified warranties.

I’m pleased to report that owning a house has made a huge difference on that front. Breathing has not come this naturally to me in years. Even on brisk walks outside in the thick of winter. Even overnight. Click here to get more information.

Sometimes (not always, I grant you, especially through the colder months – but still much more regularly than never) I wake up in the morning and find myself breathing comfortably through my nose, rather than sucking cold air desperately through my mouth.

It used to be that the only time I didn’t struggle to breathe overnight was in nice hotels, or overseas in warmer climates. But otherwise, I was never able to breathe solely through my nose at night; I just couldn’t get enough air that way.

I haven’t had the flu this year – and I always get the flu each winter, which usually knocks me out for a few days.

It’s hard if not impossible to quantify good health. How much damage has 10 years of renting already done? Renting for life might not have actually killed me, but it would’ve taken its toll.

    Is it possiblr mold spores in NZ housing or does cold climate in general make it harder for you to breathe?

    SO glad you feel better! I rented an apartment near a job I took a few years ago and there was a smell that made me sneeze for hours. I only stayed there a couple nights a week – but it was almost unbearable. You are definitely right that breathing well and sleeping well are important! So glad you found that in your house!

    That is fantastic and glad that you are feeling better these days. Something as important as being able to breath well, most of us take for granted.

    It’s great you are feeling better in the new home! What a relief that must be. We’ve had issues in a past house that made me wonder if we had mold growing in the basement. Seems like since we’ve moved out of that house, I feel better overall.

    That is a wonderful reason – I thought you were going to say something financey for the reason. Your health is priceless and I’m so happy for you that it’s a hugely positive change.

    Not having rent increases would also have been a good reason 🙂
