Make This Year’s Father’s Day His Best One Yet!
When June rolls around, two things are certain. Summer has officially begun and Father’s Day is on the horizon.This means it’s time to start seriously thinking about everyone’s favorite guy—Dad! Thanks to last year’s pandemic, many of us didn’t get the chance to see our dads, so we think it’s only right to make this Father’s Day one that Dad will never forget. How so? Well, instead of giving Dad the traditional neckties, grilling tools, T-shirts and coffee mugs, why not think outside the box when it comes to Father’s Day gifts? And since many of us at Blue Ribbon are dads ourselves, we can help. We’ve got great ideas on just the right “out of the box” gifts to make dad smile—and keep him cool, too!
Don’t Worry, Make Dad Happy
We all know summers in Bastrop County can get pretty steamy. So, it’s imperative that Dad’s summer AC temperatures and indoor comfort stay perfect if he wants to make it through another long, hot summer. Here are five ways to keep him cool and happy at home, not just this Father’s Day—but all season long.
It’s time to make Dad…
Dads always want to be the smartest person in the house, right? Invest in a smart thermostat for him and you’ll make him feel like the smartest guy on the block! Smart thermostats learn your patterns, meaning they know when you’re home, when you’re sleeping and when you’re away—and they set your home temperatures accordingly. Dad can even adjust and set the smart thermostat right from his phone. So, he’s always in control—and feeling smarter than ever.
Does Dad have a special room or space where he likes to enjoy his hobbies? Maybe it’s the garage, an attic space or even a shed where he spends time crafting or building. For many homeowners, these spaces aren’t climate controlled—and can often make Dad feel hot and sweaty. But if you install a ductless mini-split in Dad’s solo room, he’ll be as chill as a penguin! These small zone-controlled systems are prefect for areas without ductwork and do a great job keeping spaces cool.
Being a dad means you have to stay on top of all kinds of homeowner issues. From buying car insurance and paying the mortgage to renewing your home’s maintenance plan, being a responsible dad is hard work. Here’s an idea: Why not renew Dad’s maintenance plan for him—or even sign him up if he doesn’t have one? You can prepay for the year and Dad will get two service appointments: one in the fall and one in the spring! It’s a great way to let Dad know you’re in his corner and allow him to save money, too.
How’s Dad fairing with his allergies this year? We’re past cedar fever season, but that doesn’t mean indoor allergies from dust, pet dander or other home chemicals aren’t affecting him. Help clean the air for Dad by calling to schedule a whole-home indoor air quality installation! Today’s IAQ systems can do wonders for those with allergies, including zapping viruses, bacteria, mold and many other household contaminants.
Time to make Dad dinner! It’s Father’s Day after all. Head to the store and grab some big juicy steaks and Dad’s favorite six pack of beer. Then, treat him to a night of grilling and serving. You might even consider lighting some tiki torches by the fire pit and putting on his favorite oldies station. He’ll be smiling from ear to ear.
