Hey Home Improvers lol...
I just run my split system air con whenever we want now that I got Solar Panels installed.
Think I've paid under $300 for elec for the past year.
Yes I AM still paying off the panels at $100 / month, so I'm happy to get SOME return. I have a BIG family, so that's dirt cheap.
The loan for the panels is less than I was paying for elec before then. (Think I have a year to go on that loan - it was interest free btw).
Plus we seldom ran the air con because of the added costs.
Now I run it any time we want to.
I went all out and bought ALL of us (including my family outside the home) an electric blanket each. These have been pure luxury esp this Winter.
It cost me a fortune but I was spending all my savings since the International Borders were shut anyway. Our trips were cancelled.
I've just about decided to purchase a pre-fab cabin (as my brother told me to do all along lol) as I found a Qld mob that have really nice ones for a great price.
The property market has boomed in our area like never before and I'm still trying to get my head around it.
A nearby property went for almost $3 million with no water views - I'm gobsmacked.
Our neighbour's ramshackle sweet little fibro majestic is for sale atm and going to Auction soon.
They lived there 70 years. I'm almost afraid to know what it'll sell for.
Uncle has been unwell and unable to work on our refurbishments.
Hopefully he'll pick up soon.
Onwards and upwards!
