Both I and my valuist wife are busy working professionals with lot of things going on in our lives. Having two children, a house, jobs, investments, etc make life busy and exciting at the same time. So we decided to check on different options such that the simple mundane tasks in life are automated and require very little of our attention. It would leave us with a significant amount of time to do things more enjoyable.
After 2 years in our newly constructed house our electric bills were soaring pretty high averaging $180 per month. My Valuist Wife always blamed it on our double ceiling in our family room. Being an engineer, I wasn’t very convinced. My thought process was that warm air rose to the top and if I were to go with her idea then it would be an issue during the winter months. However our heating was primarily gas based and we shouldn’t be seeing hikes in our electric bills. In the summer months, on the contrary, it would work to our benefit with the cold air settling on the bottom which in effect should minimize the air conditioning. Nevertheless, we decided to investigate solar panel options.
