Fuel vs. Solar & Wind; Unforeseen Shortcomings
The environment is on a lot of peoples’ radars lately. From politics to small businesses to the everyday person, trying to keep up with all the ways you can be environmentally conscious can be tough—especially when it comes to the ways you heat your home. A lot of homeowners and businesses are researching and turning to solar or wind energy to satisfy that environmental itch to find alternatives to fossil fuels, but this new technology can be very costly and even be affected by the weather. A cloudy, rainy, snowy day or week should never put your family’s warmth and comfort at risk. Before you jump into that kind of investment, read on to learn more about financial risks of solar or wind energy and the easy savings Alternate Heating Solutions can offer you and your family!
Batteries & Expensive Fixes
The side of the story rarely talked about is what it takes to maintain a solar or wind powered energy solution. Alternatives to fossil fuels comes with pricey upfront costs, batteries, and parts that are expensive to replace or dispose of. You could be looking at a very hefty bill, with your name on it.

But you can ditch all of that worry and actually save money over time with a boiler solution with low maintenance and even lower yearly cost from Alternate Heating Solutions.
