Staying Home Can Have Its Benefits and Rewards…

by | Jun 23, 2020 | Home & Garden

Still getting use to everyone staying at home. Well, keep getting used to it, because we are all going through this together. For most of us, the benefits are many. We have a little slower pace at home, and we have more quality time with the family. Breakfast and dinner have new meaning with more time with each other, and for some of us working at home has given us a new outlook on family time. Companies are accessing the benefits for their employees. Employees that work in small tight access areas are at high risk of contact with other workers which may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. For these companies, working at home just makes sense. Also, many experts are predicting very heavy traffic loads on our freeways due to workers avoiding public transportation options. Working at home will be view as a health and safety option.
Yes, while working at home has its benefits, it can also have its costs. The costs of working at home may be the reason your monthly utility bills are increasing. Just like your office environment, your work area at home needs to be comfortable. You will always need a proper work area, and it needs to be warm in the winter, and cool in the summer; and if it is not suitable for work, your work product will suffer. With good planning, you can make your work at home experience successful and profitable.
Now for the good news. Simple and affordable energy improvements can make your work at home experience a great and new way of living. With your new work at home schedule, you may be noticing higher gas and electrical bills. One of the best ways to reduce your utility bills is to install a homeowner-owned solar panel system. Solar panel systems work. They produce free electrical energy that competes with your energy provider, and in many instances they can off-set 80 to 100% of your electrical bills. Many homeowners can achieve a Net-Zero home by also upgrading their HVAC system. Keep in mind that electrical energy has been going up at an average of 5 to 7% each and every year for the last 5 straight years, and the money that you could be saving, could go towards paying for your investment.
