Every industry has its own special standards. These are details that rival companies compete on that make a difference to the customers and decide who is at the top of the industry. In multi-family rentals, this standard can be summed up in a single word, "Luxury". Luxury apartments are a step above average apartments. They provide a higher degree of comfort, convenience, and exclusivity than what most people have come to associate with apartments and complexes. However, what defines an apartment as 'luxury' is not exactly set in stone, in fact, it changes from neighborhood to neighborhood. The design of a building can enhance the luxury of an apartment unit and neighborhood. But, many apartment communities have self-upgraded simply by improving the environment, amenities, and quality of the units themselves. If you're looking to become more competitive in the local apartment rental market, the most bang for your budget can be found in clever and affordable luxury features. Here are

You can't see it through the snow, ice and freezing rain, but spring is coming, and with it comes fine weather, flowers, new tree growth, outdoor work and sports activities - and the need for misting fans. Here are seven reasons why spring's arrival signals it's time for adding some cooling comfort to your environment:
Spring brings allergy seasonal allergiesAllergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S., with about 50 million people suffering some symptoms annually and about 200,000 trips to the emergency room made every year due to the severe reactions. A misting fan helps remove dust and allergens from skin, hair and clothing, reducing the chance of inhaling them and causing an allergic reaction.
Gardening and landscaping workWhether you're growing your own produce or re-sodding a baseball field, the water and breeze from a fan keeps you cool in warm or hot conditions, and for the home gardener, there's the

Summer is the perfect time to head out to the pool. Swimming is a great way to cool off from the hot sunshine and the sun-warmed water is never too cold to dive right in. Of course, not everyone at the pool is splashing around in the water. Lifeguards, often teenagers and young college students out of school for the season, are posted on those high wooden stands keeping everyone safe from drowning, but who is keeping them safe from the sun? Even when the stands have awnings, and they don't always, lifeguards are actually at the highest risk of anyone at the pool for dangerous overheating. If you are a pool owner or manager, one of the best things you can do for employees and customers alike is keeping your lifeguards cool.
