The Fort Collins Museum Of Art's 2017 Masks Exhibit this year runs April 7th through May 5th. Please join us on Saturday, April 8th for a free day at FCMOA as we celebrate and promote the creativity of Northern Colorado!
For thirteen years Masks has been FCMOA’s signature event. Masks offers a highly popular exhibition of community art while raising money to support the museum’s mission at the same time. Over its 13-year history, Masks has raised $1.1 million to support the museums exhibitions and educational programming. Each year has been an exciting journey as the unadorned ceramic forms leave the museum and return as an amazing collection of unique masks.
RE/MAX Advanced is proud to be a major sponsor of this annual community event. Come join us as we sponsor a Free Day this Saturday April 8th from 12-5.
Heating water in the average home consumes approximately 13 percent of your annual bill for the typical single-family home, according to EnergyStar.
It would be great if everyone could afford to invest in a new, more efficient ater heater. Since that is probably not the case, here are some quick steps you can take to cut your water heating costs.
1. Reduce the temperature. Set the temperature on your water heater to 120ºF. For every 10ºF reduction in temperature, you can save from 3% to 5% on your water heating costs.

With winter & high utility bills just around the corner now is a great time for a Home Energy Audit. Home Energy Audits are the best tool for analyzing the performance of a building and giving home owners insight into how they can stay warm and save money this winter.
Home Energy Audits can cost anywhere from $300.00-700.00, but luckily many of our local northern Colorado utilities support these efforts and we can get free or low cost audits for our homes just by contacting our utilities.

Lead poisoning isn't a thing of the past. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that houses built before 1978, the year lead-based paint for home use was banned, likely still contain some lead-based paint. Approximately 24 million housing units have deteriorated lead paint and elevated levels of lead-contaminated house dust.
Here are some lead poisoning prevention tips.
1. Home renovations. Pregnant women and children should avoid being in houses built before 1978 that are being renovated. They also shouldn't be involved in activities that disturb old paint or in cleaning up paint debris.
2. Water. Use only cold tap water for drinking, cooking, and for making baby formula. Hot water is more likely to contain higher lead levels.
3. Lead sources. Familiarize yourself with all the sources of lead poisoning, including artificial turf, toys, and folk medicine.
If your home was built before 1978 and you are concerned about the possibility of paint chips or dust containing lead, consider purchasing do-it-yourself test kits. These test kits cannot distinguish between low and high levels of lead and it may be difficult to get accurate readings on surfaces with multiple levels of paint.
The Colorado Department of Health has recently updated their Lead Services Directory, which is a great resource to find certified services for your home. In northern Colorado and Fort Collins the Colorado State University Extension office has a created a webpage with very helpful lead information.
