Net-Zero

We’re back with our special “Your Green Home,” all about how to use as little energy as possible, and save as much money as possible, in your very own home.

You know plenty of us try to save money on utilities. We adjust the temperature a few degrees, we turn off lights when we’re not using them. And we might even adjust the thermostat on the hot water tank, to bring it down just a few degrees, and to bring down our Energy bill at the same time.

But even though all those efforts will save you money and will help the environment, there’s another approach to saving energy that thousands of homeowners are adopting.

The Home Energy Audit

We are back! With our special ‘Your Green Home!’ All about your home – the energy it uses and the money you pay – for all that power.

Vacant vs Income

Back again, with our special show “Snowbirds….” all about heading South for the winter, and leaving the cold, the ice and the snow – far behind.

But we wanted to wrap up this hour of the show with a question.

When you pack up all your things, and make that long drive South…..and you stay there anywhere from three to six months….what happens to the house – you just left?

And most important – can that house generate any income for you….while you’re not in it?

Where to Go?

We are wrapping up our special show – “Snowbirds.” All about the annual migration that Americans take – from the snowy North – to the Sunny South – every winter.

But….Asheville gets over a foot of snow every year… and Grand junction gets around 19 inches!
