If you’re familiar with the weather of the Northern Nevada area during the summer months, then you know just how hot it can get here. Temperatures often reach the low 100’s as the summer progresses and the dry heat is exhausting. This year, we’ve experienced unusually high temperatures ranging from the low to mid 100’s. Unfortunately, it’s likely to only get hotter in the area which is not only uncomfortable but hazardous if you aren’t taking the right precautions to stay cool.
See how you can beat the heat this summer with Louie’s ACE Hardware. From fans and air conditioning units to water slide rentals, we have all the tools you need to keep cool this summer.
How to Cool Off Your Home This Summer
Before we get into all the products available to help keep you cool, let’s take a look at some of the things you can do to your home right now to reduce your indoor temperature.
#1 Check Your Doors and Windows
Doors and windows are the most common part of your home to let in hot air and allow cool air to escape. The seals on doors and windows can wear quickly which is not good for maintaining proper insulation during the summer or winter. Be sure to inspect the seals around the edge of all your exterior doors and windows for cracks, breaks, or missing parts. If you do notice any damage, have the seal replaced to ensure your home stays cool.
#2 Ceiling Fans and Portable Fans
Ceiling fans aren’t necessarily a staple in Northern Nevada homes for some reason, but if you are lucky enough to have them, use them. A continually rotating ceiling fan can help you feel significantly cooler in the summer as it pushes cool air down on you, allowing you to feel a light breeze of air on your skin. A portable fan provides a similar outcome, but they are less effective at pulling cool air down to you. However, any sort of air you can get to circulate through your home will be needed to keep cool.
#3 Keep Unused Rooms Closed
A room unused is a room wasting your cooling efforts. If you’re like many others with a spare bedroom or office that is visited sparingly, consider closing the door to the room along with its cooling vent. This will help the other rooms of the house stay cool as most of the cool air will be forced into these spaces.
#4 Shut Off Unnecessary Lights
While it may seem like a small adjustment to make, this simple tip can make a large difference in your electricity bill. Turning off all unnecessary lights in your home can help keep your energy costs down as well as your home’s temperature. The heat that radiates from incandescent light bulbs can add to the heat you feel in your home, so be sure to keep these to a minimum, especially during the day.
#5 Cover Your Windows During the Day
By placing just a light window covering over your windows such as a window sheer, you can significantly reduce the temperature of your home. Hot outdoor temperatures are best controlled inside by blocking the heat and direct sunlight. By blocking out a majority of the hot sunlight from your home, your other cooling efforts will be much more effective.
Stay Cool With These Products from Louie’s ACE Hardware
While fans don’t necessarily provide cool air, they do help keep the air in your home circulating so that it doesn’t get too warm. Consistent airflow is extremely important in keeping your home cool because it helps balance the warm air with the cool air in your home. This prevents hot or cold spots from developing in your house and ensures each area of the home has a consistent temperature. Portable fans come in a variety of styles and heights so that you can put them anywhere in your home. Just remember to set up your portable fan in a position that will promote proper airflow.
Water Slide Rentals
One way that you can beat the heat and keep yourself and the kids entertained is with a water slide. Not only are water slides fun, but they’re a great way to quickly cool off in times of extreme temperatures. If your home is simply too hot, or you need to get outside but don’t want to overheat, this is a great option. Interested in trying out a water slide?

Benefits of Renting Tools vs. Buying
If you’re getting ready to tackle a new DIY project or home renovation, you’re going to need tools and hardware to get the job done. Fortunately, hardware rentals are readily available to anyone who needs a specific tool but isn’t ready to purchase their own yet. There are several benefits to ACE hardware rentals that will make your next project a piece of cake.
#1 Save Your Money
Hardware tool rentals can save you up to hundreds of dollars on any given project. Rather than purchasing a tool or piece of equipment that you may only end up using a couple of times, you can rent the same tool for a fraction of the cost. Remember, hardware can be expensive and the pieces aren’t always versatile, limiting your use of them.
#2 Learn About the Tool
Renting hardware allows you to talk to the rental staff about how the equipment works and how one should properly operate it. They are very knowledgeable about all of the products we rent out and are happy to show you how they work and give you some helpful tips for best use.
#3 Try Before Buying
As stated above, some hardware can be very expensive and difficult to return. Many hardware stores in Reno may refuse your request for a refund if the tool has been used, but it’s not always so easy to tell if you’re going to like it or not. So what do you do?
Rentals gives you the opportunity to try out a tool before you buy it. This can help prevent you from getting stuck with a tool you really dislike.
#4 No Maintenance Required
Most tools will require some sort of upkeep and maintenance. Fortunately, our rentals always come complete and in perfectly working condition. And while it is expected that renters will use the equipment with care to prevent damage, there are no maintenance requirements to renting the hardware or tools.

Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to spruce up your yard again. Imagine hosting spring cookouts and family get-togethers outdoors with a lush, green lawn to enjoy it all on. In Fallon, NV, keeping a nice lawn can take a lot of work. Hot temperatures and problematic pests can wreak havoc on your lawn and garden, so it’s important that you take the appropriate steps to prepare and maintain your yard. Things like fertilizer, pesticides, and sprinkler systems are just a few of the supplies needed to keep your lawn and garden looking their best.
For a complete list of our lawn and garden care tips, keep reading below! If you’re interested in lawn care advice or even gardening rentals, connect with the experts at ACE Hardware.
Lawn care starts with an effective treatment plan and a bit of preparation. Now is the perfect time to do so considering the Fallon weather and temperatures are quite moderate. There are several factors that may affect how healthy your lawn is throughout the growing season. Follow these steps to ensure your lawn stays green and thick all spring and summer long.
After the long winter, thatch can build up and prevent your grass from looking its best. If you’re not too sure about what thatch is, it’s described as a loose, intermingled organic layer of dead and living roots. When this dead grass that gets stuck between living grass and the soil is not able to receive proper air, water, and nutrients, your lawn can end up looking rough. At Louie’s Ace Hardware, we carry all the hardware and garden supplies you need such as dethatchers to restore your lawn to its prime.
Aerating should be an important part of your lawn care process as it allows air, water, and nutrients to get to the grassroots. If your lawn is looking a little dead and colorless, it might be due to a compaction issue. Soil compaction causes the lawn to harden up and prevents new grass from growing. Water, sunlight, air, and nutrients are unable to reach the soil below the surface, which leads to several problems with your lawn. If you notice any of the following issues, then it’s probably time to aerate your lawn:
- Puddling water
- Bare areas
- Thin or patchy spots
- Thick layers of thatch
To remedy this, an aerating lawn care tool is used to remove plugs from the lawn, creating holes that let in water, air, and nutrients.
Regular feeding with a good fertilizer is essential for proper growth and lush, green color. There are many types of fertilizers to choose from and to choose the best one for your lawn, it’s recommended to first perform a pH test on the soil. If the acidity levels are high, then you’re going to need to fix this before you fertilize. You can then choose from a weed-and-feed type of fertilizer, an organic mixture, and much more. Ask your local Fallon ACE Hardware store for help determining the best fertilizer to use for your lawn.
It’s commonly recommended for homeowners to use slow-release fertilizers, as they release nutrients more efficiently and can be applied less frequently. It’s best to fertilize in the early morning or evening, then water thoroughly.
#4 Pest and Grub Control
Grubs are the larvae of beetles that hatch and thrive below the surface of lawns. They feed on the roots of your grass, killing it from underneath. They also attract animals like birds and moles who tend to dig and rip up grass from the top. Essentially, these little bugs ruin your lawn from top to bottom and they can be very difficult to notice directly since they live underground. If you notice any of the following changes in your lawn, then you may have a grub infestation:
- Irregular brown spots
- Patches of dead grass
- Soft/spongy grass that can be easily lifted up
- Increased animal activity in your yard
Other pests, like ants, centipedes, earwigs, fleas, millipedes, spiders, and ticks can run rampant in your yard. By applying a perimeter pest control around the area of your home and lawn every 4-6 weeks, you can avoid these types of problems.
Water is a precious resource, and too often around Fallon, we see people’s sprinklers watering everything but their lawn! Invest in a decent adjustable sprinkler that suits your lawn shape and size. This will save you money and ensure that the water is being directed where it’s needed.
If you’re like many of us who just don’t have a green-thumb for gardening, you’re not alone. The great thing about gardening is that you can always try again. While it may be disappointing and off-putting at first, seeing the results of your hard work are well worth the effort. Here are some garden care tips to help your garden thrive this spring and summer.
Clean Out the Area
To start your garden journey, you first need to clear out any debris in the area to prepare it for new life. Be sure to cut, prune, and dispose of any dead branches, leaves, or plants. Also, give your garden area some new soil and grab a bag of fertilizer while you’re at it. Lastly, mulch your borders with compost or manure and stop any young weeds in their tracks. All your hard work will pay off when it’s time to sow seeds and start the most fun part of gardening – planting!
Tend to Surviving Plants
If you were lucky enough to keep some of your plants alive through the winter, first give yourself a pat on the back, and then see that they get some much needed attention. Start by pruning leaves and dead foliage on the plants, give them some fertilizer, and give them a good watering. Also be sure to pack down their roots if you noticed them pop up during the frigid temperatures. All of this will help give your plants a fighting chance of survival!
Plant Trees, Shrubs, and Other Plants
After all that hard work tidying up and removing unwanted plants, it’s time to get planting. If you didn’t manage to plant trees and shrubs during the fall, the ground should now be free from frost and therefore soft enough for you to get planting now. That way, your new plants will be fully established by the time winter hits again.

If you’re getting ready to tackle a new DIY project or home renovation, you’re going to need tools and hardware to get the job done. While some tools such as hammers, screw drivers, and tape measures are commonly found in most homes, other, more complex tools such as jack hammers and tractors are much less common. Fortunately, hardware rentals are readily available to anyone who needs a specific tool but isn’t ready to purchase their own yet. Take a look below at some of the advantages of renting hardware from our Louie’s Ace Hardware Store as opposed to purchasing them!
Test Different Products
One of the biggest advantages of renting a piece of equipment before you run out and purchase it is that you’re able to test different products to ascertain which is most suitable for you and your project. Most hardware rentals offer a variety of brands and tool types so you can see which product you like best. Some tool brands may perform better than others and the best way to figure that out is to test it for yourself. Rather than purchasing hardware based on superficial facts you may have found online, you can now test out your favorite products first-hand. With ACE hardware rentals, you can rent bigger equipment like a lawn mower. This is the most accurate way to determine whether or not you like a product and it could help save you money in the long run.
Renting hardware equipment that you may not use very often can help you save money you may need for other supplies. If you’re anticipating using a certain tool for just one or a few projects, then it probably doesn’t make much sense for you to purchase an expensive tool. Therefore, ACE hardware rentals may be your best option. If you do find an increased need for a certain tool, you can always purchase it when that time comes. For now, the ACE home center makes it easy for you to get your project done without spending a ton of money on a product you rarely use.
Free Up Storage Space
While some tools are compact and can be easily hidden away until you’re ready to use them, others are much larger and tend to take up more space. Paying for additional storage can be costly. So, for those of you who have limited storage space, the ACE home center may provide the solution you’re looking for. They allow you to get your project done properly while also helping you keep your home clutter free.
Hassle-Free Hardware Sales/Rentals
At Louie’s ACE Home Center, we offer a variety of ACE hardware sales/rentals that are available for daily, weekly, or monthly use. Whether you’re looking to rent a tool for a simple one day project, or need the equipment for an extended amount of time, we can help. Our knowledgeable staff is always happy to help you determine which tool will be the most useful and effective for you to use. Contact our ACE hardware rental department today and let us help you with your DIY project!
