Hardware stores and mechanics busy as cold weather moves in
UPPER ARLINGTON, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- Record- breaking cold weather is keeping hardware stores and mechanics very busy.
Space heater's are selling earlier than usual at Nutter Hardware in Upper Arlington.
"I firmly believe the safest ones out there are the ones that are driven by electricity. The one I recommend the most often is the infrared type," said Chuck Nutter, the owner of Nutter Hardware.
Nutter said infrared fans blow a lot of air at a very low noise level and said they are very safe.
Miller's Arlington Car Care has also been busy with all the cold weather. The owner recommends drivers to start preparing their cars for the cold right now and to get snow tires.
"Get an oil change. You should be checking your tires and fluids, checking your anti-freeze to make sure it's good until at least 32 below zero. Make sure it's clean, power steering fluids."
