Message From Stoney
Four years ago, after our first summer living in the barndominium, Ellen and I were shocked at the cost of our electric bill. We chalked it up to the fact that we were supplying power to the 1600 sqft apartment, inside a large shop, a separate barn, and several extra appliances. We looked into alternatives and decided to install solar panels on the shop to help offset the cost of running the farm.
We did get a federal credit on our income tax and a low interest loan. However, after 4 years, I don’t know that the savings on our Entergy bill will ever recoup the costs of installing the solar system at the time, with the incentives that were available.
In a traditionally built home, the HVAC system battling passive moist air intrusion, and the heat coming from the vented attic, has been the main driver of energy usage. On our new #AndersonForeverHome, the 98% tightness of the envelope, with an encapsulated attic, allows our HVAC system to run at a lower speed and use less energy to maintain the desired inside temperature. Our total Entergy bill for our new house is substantially less than what a, same size, traditionally built home would cost to run. Add in the lower maintenance and health benefits we get from a sealed envelope, and the longer we live in our home, the more money we will save, especially with rising energy costs.
Along with Anderson Homes’ pledge to build an energy efficient house, all Anderson Forever Homes are built solar ready. The longer times goes by, technological advances will help solar cost less and we all know about the government’s push to incentivize alternative energy. When it makes economic sense, all Anderson Forever Homes will be ready to accept solar panels with no retrofit needed. We believe that making our houses solar ready today is the most cost effective option when considering the sustainable features of your new custom home.
