Solar panels require very little maintenance. The solar power generator system has no moving parts to wear out and replace. Cleaning a couple of times a year is usually all that is required.

Next is the size of the heater in your bathroom fans w/ heater. You’ll want to make certain that the heater is designed for 120 Volt operation. If the bathroom fans w/ heater is designed for 240 Volt operation, you’ll need to have special wiring installed by a competent electrician to accommodate it.

Change light fixtures and light bulbs. Many of the new lighting fixtures on the market today are more energy efficient. A new light fixture would do a lot towards making the house look clean and well maintained. Using the right bulbs for these fixtures saves energy and produces a better quality light. If you do not like working on ladders, or you have a fear of electricity, this is something best left to a tradesman.

When it comes to home improvement contractors there are general categories that they will all fit into. The first category I like to call the “Bob Vila” of contractors. Very well known, an excellent reputation, has all of the right licenses and insurance, provides very high quality work, and all work is completed on schedule. This is by far the best type of contractor to hire if money is no object! Expect to pay considerably more than your average contractor. A good rule of thumb is to figure the material costs, plus the labor costs, and double that. This is what the average turn-key project will cost if you hire a general contractor, not a Bob Villa. Add about 50%25 more for this category of contractor. Check references however, this contractor will not give you anyone that has anything bad to say.

Knowing how to make these panels or home windmills is not so difficult. With the right knowledge you would be able to make, install and get full benefit from solar power. Even getting the right materials is easy to get.

Aging is for sissies. Even though my brittle bones break easily now, I need to feel the hurt of a hockey body check, the pain of a torn knee in a football game. While waiting at the batter’s plate for the agonizingly slow arc of a softball pitch I long for the sting of a hardball smacking into my bare hands.
