|Air cooling alternatives still costly|
With the recent hot weather, the one thing on our minds is the cost of energy to heat and cool our homes and businesses.
Every year there are new regulations that continue to increase this cost. Combined with the increase in the price of electricity and oil and to a lesser extent natural gas, we are constantly looking for ways to reduce the price we pay for the comfortable environment we have become so addicted to. We are constantly told that there is a free source of energy, called Solar Energy, especially in the South, where sunshine is in abundance. However, as I recently discovered this so called "free energy" isn't actually free. There is a considerable up-front cost.
Home energy cost average from eight- to 14-cents per heated square foot per month. That means a home with 2,000 sq. ft. heated area will cost between $160 and $280 per month depending on the season of the year and the temperature setting.
