NEW YORK, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Video News Release - With the weather warming up, now's the perfect time to get your house and yard ready for a season full of fun! Emmy Award-Winning host George Oliphant stopped by with some tips on how to save money, energy, and space, from energy efficient cooling systems, to landscaping and gardening solutions.
Cooling systems account for nearly 50% of a home's energy use – and 20% of the air moving through traditional ductwork can be lost to leaks, holes and poor connections. A wall unit from LG's Art Cool™ Gallery duct-free split system places your AC into a piece of fully customizable artwork! This system is more efficient than traditional central HVAC and window-mounted air conditioners. It allows you to cool or heat your entire home or just a single room without the need for ductwork. One outdoor unit can cool up to 8 rooms.
For outdoor improvements, George reaches for his favorite landscaping tools and mulch. There's a brand new line of cordless landscaping tools – Troy-Bilt powered by CORE. They make a string trimmer, hedge-trimmer, and a leaf-blower, with a walk-behind mower coming soon. The patented motor rivals the power of gas engines, and all of the units operate on the same battery. So if you already own one battery, you can save money by purchasing just the bare tools.
One of the easiest ways to enhance the beauty of any garden or landscape this summer is by applying mulch. This simple step helps maintain soil moisture, prevent weeds by blocking growth and access to sunlight and creates a groomed landscape all year long. The Scotts® company's mulch guarantees yearlong color and only uses high-quality natural recovered forest product. Miracle Gro makes a line of organic soil products called Nature's Care - especially designed to get your garden ready before summer really heats up. These soils make it easier to grow beautiful flowers, plants and even homegrown veggies for a nutritious family meal.
