I didn’t expect for the power company to be cutting us checks

Now we have HVAC zone control throughout the whole house.

When we first had solar panels installed on our roof, we were so excited about the savings we would have on the energy bills. We have a large roof too and we fit a lot of solar panels up there. We have a 25 year warranty for the solar panels too, so that’s reassuring. They are guaranteed to have at least 80% efficiency up until 25 years, so I can’t wait to see if they can stand the test of time. So far though, we have been saving a lot of money on the energy bills. I couldn’t believe how low the electric bills have been. Then we recently decided to upgrade our HVAC system to something more energy efficient. That old system really was an energy hog according to our HVAC professional. He suggested that we go with a ductless multi-split system. I’m glad he recommended this because it made sense to go with a ductless system seeing the awesome energy saving potential. Now we have HVAC zone control throughout the whole house. Each room has customized temperature control settings and the children are especially pleased about that. They certainly haven’t been fighting over the temperature control settings anymore, that’s for sure. The thing I didn’t expect though was for the energy company to give us credit on our bills instead of us owing them. When the credit built up high enough, they eventually cut us a check for putting more energy on the grid than pulling from it! That HVAC upgrade was definitely worth it and I’m so happy to have a nice solar panel system.
