Joke of the Day: How was it that the nosy roofer ended up doing such a bad job? He couldn't stop eavesdropping!

Solar panels can give back. Assuming you meet the prerequisite of having an unshaded, south-facing roof, solar panels can be a pretty great investment. They aren’t as glamorous or fun as a new bathroom or kitchen, but they’ll slowly pay for themselves. Some of the Albertans who choose to buy solar panels even take out a loan so that their solar panels can be up on the roof and lowering their electricity bill now rather than in a few years. Before you start with solar though, it’s a good idea to decide why you want to generate your own power. If it’s for finances, do the math to make sure it’s a good investment. If it’s for the environmental reasons, double check that you aren’t in one of the few Albertan towns that already uses renewable resources. While coal generators dominate, some parts of our provinces are powered by wind. There’s no point making the switch for green-reasons if you’re already eco-friendly. http://goo.gl/AcMjMN

With green-living on many Canadians’ minds lately, we’ve been getting asked about solar panels. Where do you put them? Are they worth the investment? Will they weaken my roof? These are all really good questions, so we’re going to try to answer them today. To begin, solar panels probably aren’t going to work for your home if you do not have a large portion of unshaded roof facing south. After all, solar panels that are shaded by a tree aren’t doing you much good, and given how low the sun is during the Canadian winter, you’ll need your panels facing south if you want them to be worthwhile. http://goo.gl/5oUAoe

Unbalanced intake and exhaust vents can cause problems like conditioned, house air getting sucked up into the attic instead of dry, outside air. Basically, the imbalance in the vents causes a vacuum that sucks air from the house instead of through the intake vents. This may not seem like much of an issue, but house air has a lot of moisture from cooking, showering, laundry, and even just breathing. So when moist, house air is in the attic instead of outside air, you’re going to have humidity issues and potentially mould. Generally speaking, your intake and exhaust vents need to be in balance. If that’s not possible, it’s better to have too much intake then too much exhaust. As too much exhaust will only create a vacuum and suck up the conditioned, house air. http://goo.gl/hdc7g6
