The 40 Best and Safest Pet Fences

Pet fencing systems are an excellent way to keep your pet safely contained in a specific area. When used according to manufacturer’s instructions, they provide a safe and reliable way to keep your pet out of harm’s way while allowing them to explore and get the exercise they need.

There are several types of systems to choose from. There are buried or in-ground wire systems, above-ground systems, wireless systems that use a transmitter device to project a desired boundary and even radio- and WiFi-enabled collars.

You’ll want to consider the type of system you desire before purchasing. Wireless systems provide more portability and are easier to install and set up. Wired systems can be expanded more easily though. Consider the coverage area your pet will require and look for a model that provides suitable coverage.

Replacement receiver collar batteries can be quite costly – rechargeable collars cut down on that expense but require time to charge up. If you have more than one dog or will need to expand the system in the future, that is another consideration to keep in mind.

Always install and use pet fences according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact them.

With the above in mind, in no particular order, here are 40 of the pet fences and fencing systems we consider to be the best, based on available features and average customer reviews.

The Best Water Heaters: 5 Safe, Efficient Water Heaters to Consider for Your Hot Water Needs

Sometimes, water heaters act up and need a simple fix by an experienced technician. Other times, a replacement water heater is in order, which is often the case if your current water heater is more than ten to twelve years old. In most cases, a new water heater can be installed in one day.

There are several water heater options available, depending on your hot water needs. Electric water heaters are more expensive than natural gas water heaters, but they often are superior in design, installation, maintenance, and service life compared to gas water heaters. Gas water heaters, however, are reliable and may recuperate as much as 40% faster than electric water heaters. Because gas water heaters have higher efficiency ratings, it may be possible to meet your hot water needs with a gas unit that has a smaller storage tank than with an electric water heater of the same rating. Tankless water heaters are another option, and they are gaining popularity because of their longer lifespan and on-demand hot water capabilities. Finally, solar water heaters are able to provide nearly 80% of a home’s hot water needs using energy provided by the sun.

With all of these choices, how do you choose the water heater that is right for your needs? One step is to consult professional plumbers and experienced technicians. They can review the options, evaluating the features and benefits offered by each water heater, to help you determine which model is the best choice for your home. We recommend five of the best and safest water heaters below, in no particular order.

Consumers reviewing the Takagi indoor tankless water heater on Amazon.com contribute to a near-perfect average rating of 4.8 stars out of 5, with one reviewer noting that this model has provided 10 full years of solid performance.

Water heaters come in several options, including electric, natural gas, propane gas, and even solar-powered models, so it’s no surprise that homeowners can easily become overwhelmed when choosing a new water heater. A look at your home’s hot water needs, energy requirements, and other features will narrow the options. Some water heaters require only a small space, while others hold dozens of gallons of water and take up a larger footprint. Additionally, some water heater models offer greater energy efficiency than other options, with some meeting criteria for Energy Star certification, meaning they can use 50 percent less energy than models meeting the minimum federal standard. A consultation with a qualified technician or plumber will help you decide which type of water heater will best accommodate your home’s hot water needs.

The 50 Best Indoor Grills & Griddles

Indoor grills and griddles are a wonderful way to enjoy the taste and simplicity of BBQ cooking all year round, and they are incredibly safe when observing just a few proper safety precautions.

The CPSC’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates that there were nearly 3,000 reported cases of injuries to children under the age of 18 caused by electric (and otherwise unspecified) grills that were treated in hospital in the United States in 2014.

The number of actual injuries is likely to be quite higher than this, as the data from the CPSC reporting system only looked at those injuries which resulted in medical treatment at one of 100 participating hospitals, and minor injuries were likely treated at home or another medical treatment facility not included in the reporting data.

Never leave your indoor grill unattended as fires and burns can happen very quickly. Don’t allow children to use an electric grill without proper supervision. By trimming excess fat from your meats, you’ll reduce the amount of smoke produced when cooking indoors. For this reason, it’s a good idea to use indoor grills near a kitchen widow or vent. It’s also a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher on hand in case of emergencies.

With the above tips in mind, in no particular order, here are 50 of the indoor grills and griddles we consider to be the safest, based on available features and average customer reviews and ratings.

The 50 Best Bike Helmets for Kids

When used with a bit of caution and common sense under proper adult supervision, bicycles, scooters, rollerblades and skateboards can be an excellent way for children to get some exercise, develop gross motor control, and burn off all that energy.

But they are not without their risks. Possible injuries that can be caused while riding include cuts, bruises, pinches, sprains and strains, broken bones and fractures, head injuries including concussions, and even death.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates that there were nearly 240,000 reported cases of injuries to children under the age of 18 caused by bicycles and tricycles that were treated in hospital in the United States in 2014.

Ensuring your child is wearing an approved helmet when riding their bike, even if it’s just a short distance is one of the best ways to protect your child. Three quarters of all American children ride a bike each month, but only about half of those wear a helmet every time they do so. Wearing a helmet is the easiest and most effective way to reduce bike-related head injuries.

The CPSC and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) test helmets to see if they comply with certain minimum standards. Look for one of their certifications on a product you’re considering purchasing for your child to ensure additional safety.

With the above tips in mind, in no particular order, here are 50 of the best bike helmets for kids we consider to be the safest, based on available features and average customer reviews and ratings.

The Best Attic Insulation: 5 Safe, Efficient Attic Insulation Types to Consider for Insulating Your Home

If you think you might be paying more for your heating and cooling than you should be, or if you have an older home, there’s a good chance that you don’t have enough insulation. Even newer homes may not have adequate insulation if the contractor only put in the minimum amount of insulation required by building codes. With insufficient insulation, energy loss can occur, resulting in drafty areas, higher utility bills, and an uncomfortable home climate. If you’ve been noticing these problems, it’s probably time to consult a home heating and insulation expert.

Home heating and insulation experts use tools such as infrared camera images to determine which sections of the attic need more insulation. Blue areas in infrared images reveal where cool air may be entering the home during the winter months. After identifying problem areas, home heating and insulation experts are able to seal air leaks and install new or additional attic insulation, preventing your home from losing heat and you from paying more than you should be to heat your home. Keep in mind that even the best insulation will not protect your home from the cold if it’s not installed properly.

Typical attic insulation types include cellulose, fiberglass, mineral wood, spray foam, and rigid foam. It’s also a good idea to consult an expert about attic insulation because they can identify the appropriate R-value — the insulation’s ability to resist heat flow — for your home, and that means a more comfortable home and lower utility bills. We’ve identified the best and safest attic insulation options to help you choose the right insulation for your home’s needs, including attic insulation options earning top ratings by consumers for offering the robust protection many homes require from the cold winter air.

The Best Sump Pumps: 5 Safe, Efficient Sump Pumps to Consider for Your Basement

Your sump pump more than likely is one of those tools that you don’t often think about until you need it. But, sump pumps serve such an important function for homeowners that you should make sure you have the best and safest model available before something happens and you are stuck with an outdated, unreliable pump. You especially should consider installing or updating your sump pump if you have an older home or live in a particularly damp area. Older homes are much more likely to develop cracks around the foundation or basement windows, and basement sealing is not always a 100% guarantee that water will stay out of your home.

Sump pumps almost always handle the water that enters people’s basements. In most cases, one electrically-powered sump pump can do the job, but if the power goes out, it is a good idea to have a back-up pump. Battery-powered sump pumps immediately begin to work when the power goes out, and fully-charged battery-powered sump pumps can run for about eight hours. Don’t take a chance with your sump pump. Consider replacing your old one, adding a back-up pump, or installing a new sump pump for the first time to protect your valuables and keep your basement free of the mold and mildew often associated with wet basements.

There are several types of sump pumps available. Some are submersible, some are plastic, and some are cast iron and stainless steel. Some sump pumps have float switches, while others are available in 1/3 HP, 1/4HP, 1/2 HP, 3/4 HP, and other power options. To help you decide which sump pump is right for you, we have searched for models that are top rated by homeowners and recommended by professional plumbers and licensed technicians. We have chosen sump pumps that are extremely reliable and powerful to put homeowners’ minds at ease.

The 50 Best Bikes for Kids

When used with a bit of caution and common sense under proper adult supervision, bicycles can be an excellent way for children to get some exercise, develop gross motor control, and burn off all that energy.

But they are not without their risks. Possible injuries that can be caused while bike riding include cuts, bruises, pinches, sprains and strains, broken bones and fractures, head injuries including concussions, and even death.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) estimates there were nearly 240,000 reported cases of injuries to children under the age of 18 caused by bicycles and tricycles that were treated in hospital in the United States in 2014.

The number of actual injuries caused by bicycles is likely to be quite higher than this, as the data from the CPSC reporting system only looked at those injuries which resulted in medical treatment at one of 100 participating hospitals, and minor injuries were likely treated at home or another medical treatment facility not included in the reporting data.

Always be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use and ensure your child is wearing an approved helmet when riding their bike, even if it’s just a short distance. Three quarters of all American children ride a bike each month, but only about half wear a helmet every time they do so. Wearing a helmet is the easiest and most effective way to reduce bike-related head injuries. Your child should also wear visible clothing, use lights at night, and follow the rules of the road when riding with traffic.

With the above tips in mind, in no particular order, here are 50 of the best bikes for kids we consider to be the safest, based on available features and average customer reviews and ratings:
