    I am looking for a way to make our home more energy efficent.
    (power bills & envirioment) My wife & I have a 14 Year old son. I am
    a Vietnam veteran. I have been disabled since 2003. We do own our home.
    It was paid off, however over the last 12 years we have had to borrow
    against it. Otherwise I would replace the heat pump and windows ourselves.

    Thank you, sincerly

    What I am about to write might seem like a harsh statement to some of you but there is no malicous intent, only the cold hard truth that we all know to be self evident.
    On the planet Earth, homo sapiens do not require the utilization of electricity in order to live. They have been made to believe that they do.

    The words planet, world, and, Earth would all seem to be synonmous, to most people but really they are not. Earth is the planet we all live on. Our world is what we make of it. If you believe you need electricity to live on Earth then that is your world. Just remember that for thousands of years all of mankind did not need electricity to live on the planet Earth. That was their world. We today are a living testimony to that fact. The utilization of electrcity is something that most people today, believe they need in order to live on the planet Earth. Its just not so, thats simply the world they live in. That belief began only one hundred years ago. We can’t change the planet Earth but, we can all change the world in which we live. There is a growing belief in the world of quantum physics that tells us, no matter what we think we know, we don’t know anything but what we know. http://www.whatthebleep.com

    Hi ADELINA HEBER.
    I could help but comment on your remarks about your electric bill. There is a site I would like for you to look at please.
    http://www.cleanerandgreener.org/resources/pollutioncalculator.htm

    The choice is yours ADELINA, electricity is not a must have like food and water. Electricity is a desire. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying you should live without any electricity at all but I am sure there is a lot that you could live without if you would apply your mind to the task and ask your heart to follow. You won’t have to change your religion ether. There is lots of info on the subject of living without electricity. After all, people had been living without it since, well, since there have been people. Its only been in the last 100 years that people have begun to believe they cannot live without it. That is the power of advertising.

  11. Elaina Wright Says:

    I just bought a house almost 2 yrs ago, it was built in 1986 the home still has the roll out windows, I loose so much air out of them. It takes so long for the home to cool as the air conditioner unit is still the original one from 1986 . I have tried fixing the windows myself but the panes just fall out. I’m a single mom and don’t know what to do. I work part time as the economy is so bad right now. Please help.

    Thank you,

    I am a qualified energy consultant. I’ll teach you how to save money on your electric bill, no cost. We Americans, generally, are using more and more electricity every year and the cost of that electricity is going up. There are a lot of small adjustments you can do that make a significant difference on what you’ll pay.

    I think we can only save the energy if energy efficeint appliances were cheaper. You see, most people want to lower the energy bill and help the earth but as long as the prices are HUGE, this will be a slow process

  14. Heat Exchanging Says:

    A heat recovery ventilator will replace the moist air with fresh air from outside that is dry. This happens using a fan to create a constant slow incoming flow of outdoor air while concurrently having an outward flow of indoor air that has become stale. In essence, fresh air is in constant supply as the allergens and other pollutants are regularly being escorted out.

  15. Gemma Taylor Says:

    There is a lot of information on the internet regarding building your own Home Solar Power System and Wind Turbine System. Does anybody know if there is any grants available in Florida if you change to renewable energy sources. I’ve also read some electricity companies will buy any excess energy that you don’t use. Is this difficult to setup and monitor?

    i also am disabled,would like to change my house to solar,any place to get it free,with incentives etc,any efficent ways to save on my bills thank you cheramie

  17. Peter Kindle on Fire Says:

    great initiative. I built my own solar panel system, this way it came way cheaper than the comercial ones. I hope it will last as long. But ROI is certainly better.

  18. Panela Glass Says:

    I am disabled and live on $700.00 a month. In July my dad passed away and I had to use all my money to help pay for expenses.That put me behind on my mortage and all my bills which by the help from God I’ll find away to catch up somehow. I have severe allergies to mold and when I returned from the funeral I walked into my home which was 92 degrees.My ac unit outside died. I can’t possibly afford to replace it and I can’t afford a loan. I pray you can help me to see if it could be fixed. On top of that I don’t have any insulation in my attic which is more money I just can’t afford. I would be so happy to find someone out there that can assist me in my time of need.
    God Bless
