This could be the most dangerous appliance in your home
Believe it or not, one of the most important appliances in your home - your water heater - also has the potential to be the most dangerous. That's why it's so important to make sure it is well maintained. 

Water heaters have a thermostat designed to monitor and prevent super-heating. If the thermostat fails, a temperature and pressure relief valve (TPRV) is installed to relieve the pressure. The TPRV is that little metal lever you see on top of your water heater. 

A water heater can accumulate more than 85,000 pounds of pressure. If the tank ruptures with super- heated water inside, and there's no TPRV, the result is a severe explosion. So protect your home. Double check to make sure your water heater has a TPRV.
Did you know you have multiple credit scores?
Every buyer wonders, "What is my credit score?" But the correct question is "What are my credit scores?" When you apply for a mortgage to buy a home, your lender will pull three credit scores, not just one. 

You have credit scores from three different credit firms: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. And none of these three credit scores are likely to be the same. 

Each credit firm bases its score on its own formula that, while similar, are not exactly the same. They may also have different information. It's therefore important to pull a credit report from each one and fix any errors before you apply for a home. Remember, if there are errors, you will need to fix them with each credit firm separately.

Disaster preparedness: Do you have a plan?
Every family needs to have a disaster preparedness plan. Being ready will give you and your family peace of mind before something happens, and can make the difference if and when something does. 

The America Red Cross suggests that planning can be as easy as 1-2-3:
  1. Meet as a family or with everyone in your household. Discuss how you are going to respond to different emergencies that are likely to occur where you live, learn, work and play.
  2. Assign responsibilities: how you will work together as a team and select a centralized meeting site away from home, work and school.
  3. Practice as many elements of your plan as you can.
To get started, download the Red Cross smartphone app with Emergency Alerts for disasters. It's free and available for most devices.
