It’s almost unbelievable how much the SunSource® Home Energy System can do for your home. You know how much sun shines here in Cedar Rapids, so why wouldn’t you put the energy to use? It can help reduce your heating and cooling costs and even powers other appliances in your home. It could even cut your utility bills by more than half. That’s certainly something to smile about.
A number of people are asking how to “go green.” Our answer – for the paramount environmentally friendly home – is to add solar capabilities. There are an endless number of reasons why solar is a wonderful choice, but we’ll just outline three.
- Solar energy is free. You do have to purchase the system, but once it’s installed the sun provides its energy free of cost. Plus, your utility costs will be significantly lower than what you were paying before, it’ll feel like this energy is nearly free, too.
- It increases your home’s value. U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development surveys have noted that home values rise an average of $20 for every $1 reduction in year-end utility bills. That amount will add up quickly with a solar energy system in your Cedar Rapids area home.
- It’s environmentally responsible. Opposite from coal, oil and gas, the sun’s energy is clean and doesn’t let harmful toxins into the environment. In addition, your solar energy system will provide plenty of energy to your home, cutting back the amount you need from your local utility grid.
