I would need to upgrade my twenty year old unit to a newer, more efficient one that could
As I have gotten older I have come to realize that I need to start thinking more about the people and world around me. How I manage my time and treat those things has become important to me. I think this really hit home one day while I was watching my granddaughter play in the backyard. I began to think about all of the fossil fuels that were being burned each year and how they were affecting the world around us. Air pollution, toxic water, and even deforestation were causing our world to become a less safe place to be. I decided that I wanted to make a change. I know that my converting over to solar power was not going to save the world but at least I could be a drop in the bucket of change. I knew that the bulk of the energy I used came from running the HVAC system in my home. Living in a dessert area we need to have air conditioning so I wasn’t ready to give that up. I also knew that my current unit could not be converted over to using the solar power system I was having installed. I would need to upgrade my twenty year old unit to a newer, more efficient one that could. The expense of converting to all solar power was going to be high but every dollar would be worth it. All of the new equipment would pay for itself over time and I would feel better about doing my small part to make the world around me a safer place for future generations.
