'Tis The Season to Have Your HVAC Checked!

It's getting cold out there! Although some of us can handle the cold more than others, with these brisk Louisville autumn nights, chances are you have already started turning on the heat in your home - but have you had you had your routine HVAC maintenance yet?! We all know how miserable it is to wake up in the middle of the night, absolutely freezing because your heat went out. It always seems to happen at the worst times, and whether you have pets, kids, or a spouse...you better get ready to hear some complaining! Especially since this scenario is avoidable with routine preventative maintenance. It's important to have your HVAC checked at least twice a year. First, when you are about to turn on the heat for the first time, and second, when you are going to turn on your AC for the first time. This way you can catch and address any problems before they become a major inconvenience. Just remember that the longer into the season you wait, the more calls your local HVAC technician will be receiving. If something does go wrong, there is a good chance you will have to wait a few days before it can be fixed! So, make sure to get ahead of any HVAC issues, and can stay cozy and warm this season.

Halloween on Hillcrest

Halloween on Hillcrest is a spooky and delightful tradition on Hillcrest Avenue, in the Crescent Hill neighborhood. Each year residents of Hillcrest spend tons of their time and money on extravagant decorations, making the street come alive with the spirit of Halloween. Some residents have displays that are consistent from year to year, while others come up with new themes every year. During the month of October, an estimated 75,000+ visitors from near and far make it a point to drive to Hillcrest Avenue and walk up and down the street to see the what scary surprises are in store.

On the big day, the street will be blocked off to traffic, and Hillcrest Avenue will be flooded with Trick-or-Treaters, with on average between 2,500 to 3,000 children.  This year, Trick-or-Treating will take place on October 31st from 5pm to 9pm, rain or shine. The residents of Hillcrest Avenue participate in this spectacular event on a voluntary basis, and generously provide candy to all of the Trick-or-Treaters out of their own pockets. Halloween on Hillcrest is a wonderful example of neighbors coming together to bring joy to the community, which is yet another reason that we at Family Realty are so proud to be Louisvillians.
