Many of us, for reasons both environmental as well as financial, are contemplating “going off the grid” and installing solar panels on our homes.
Before you take the plunge, you should be aware of a potential scam that has popped in this field. It involves companies that offer to install solar panels on your home for free. The deal is, they own the panels and they will bill you every month, just like the power company.
Now, these companies promise that your bill will be substantially less than what you’re currently paying, but there have been reports of people actually paying more.
So before agreeing to anything, do your homework. Find out if other friends or family members have done business with the company. Research them online with the Better Business Bureau and things like Yahoo reviews. Finally, read your contract carefully and make sure you understand what you’re getting yourself into.
Reputable businesses are always glad to do business in the sunshine.
The idea that we need less sleep as we grow older is false. Research shows 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night helps keep our brains sharp. Lack of good sleep on a consistent basis can lead to depression on even dementia!
Here are some tips to help you make it through the night:
Avoid Long Naps – If you must nap during the day, try to keep it under 30 minutes
Socks – Yes, wearing socks to keep your feet warm can actually help you sleep sounder and longer
Keep Discussion Pleasant – Try to avoid discussing topics like politics or finances that can raise your stress level in the last few hours before bedtime.
