I've always heard it's only worth it to install it when building new. But I've heard you can save money by installing a timer on the water heater and using electricity for it during non peak times.

we don't have peak rates here. Electricity costs the same all day.

I'm thinking about selling my place. I bought in a fringe area near Uptown and I think I can turn a quick $30,000 profit on my place. Not too bad for only being there for 2.5 years. I want to build a bungalow a little bit closer to Plaza-Midwood. There is a builder in the area that will build 3BR/2BA bungalow homes starting at $152k. I'd probably spend 25-30k more to get some upgraded features thrown in though.


I kind of want a yard now, although not a big one, so I want to get out of my townhome.

I wish my electric bill were $325 per month.


I am a person who gets too damn hot.  So, I like to keep the temp down around 72.  During the summer, by power bill is over $450 per month.


But then again, my wife and kids have a BAD habit of leaving every light and TV on in the house...all the time.


Just kills me.

Eh, lights don't really use THAT much electricity.


Heating and cooling systems and water heaters are the biggest users of electricity. The best thing you could probably do to lessen that (if you don't have this already) would be to zone your heating/cooling system so you're not heating/cooling the whole house all the time and install a super efficient water heating system.


Zoning your HVAC system would have the most impact though and I don't think it is terribly expensive to do.

I normally don't advocate the defense of "ignorance of the law".  But, in this case she should have been given a misdemeanor at the most.


I think the cop did the right thing, but the DA seemed to have blown it.

Yep. I think a fine at most (I think a warning for first offense is sufficient, especially since she did the right thing when he pulled her over). Going to prison for this would be a joke.
