The comfort of our home is undeniably the best we’ve ever experienced. Our new home is extraordinarily quiet, and exceptionally comfortable. After paying a utility bill of more than $450 per month in the winter and $250 in summer, we have had only a $4.75 connection fee for electricity and about 1/2 the natural gas charge of our previous home.
With the federal tax credit, which offsets a third of the cost, the 15% state rebate, the 50% bonus depreciation and the energy savings– combined with the positive environmental impact – it’s a totally win-win situation. Additionally, the solar on our home adds value – but does not add to our property tax bill!
We live in a luxury, energy efficient, green home built by Clarum Communities. Clarum installed grid-tied photovoltaic electricity and solar water heating for domestic hot water and forced air space heating, which is supplemented by gas when there is insufficient solar heat. The PV covers all our electricity needs in a house almost 5,000 sq. ft., plus it charges our electric car. The walls are 10″ thick SIPS which provide very effective insulation from the outside heat or cold. In summer we have rarely turned on the air conditioner as the house maintains a very steady, comfortable temperature even when outdoor temperature is over 100 degrees. Our home is comfortable year round, extremely eco-friendly and visually superb. Clarum Communities did an excellent job constructing our home.
