When I was looking at property to build our house, I didn’t want to spend thoUnited Statesnds of dollars to clear a bunch of trees and brush.
I thought it would be cool to build our home in the middle of a field, but having no trees is a concern that I didn’t entirely consider.
It costs a fortune to heat and cool our home, because of the open field. There are no trees to supply shade while in the Summer or insulation while in the winter. The home is open to all of the elements and that can be difficult at times. During the summer, our cooling costs are very high. The same is true while in Winter time when the two of us have to run the furnace frequently. Every year since our partner and I moved to the region, the two of us have witnessed an increase in the energy bills for energy United Statesge. Only a couple of years ago, the two of us did something smart to help with the utility bills. Both of us invested in solar panels for our home. The solar panels collect sun while in the morning and the energy is stored for use in our home. The solar panels entirely help break the costs of heating and cooling our home. They were a significant investment up front, but the two of us had a couple of government subsidies that helped with the fees. Around here, there are large bonuses if you have solar energy. Even local corporations use solar energy to help defer the costs of heating and cooling. It’s not unrespected to see miles of farms followed by fields of solar panels.
