Gas prices are on the rise again. They seem to go up so quickly, but boy are they slow coming down.
One thing I’ve noticed lately that has probably been happening for years is our use of lights. A lot of homes and businesses have either window blinds, shades, heavy curtains or some combination of the above. When light is desired in a given space or room, rather than opening up for natural light, we flip a switch. Skylights were once popular, but seem to have fallen out of style. Today’s low energy usage light bulbs use less electricity, but contain mercury, and are supposed to be disposed of in a haz-mat collection site, really who does that? Newer skylight designs use tubes similar to A/C vent tubes to redirect light where you want it and drastically reduce the need of making large holes in roofs, which reduces the possibilities of unwanted roof leaks. It is even possible to have the light enter a tube that doesn’t penetrate the roof at all.
Tomorrow is another day. Peace be with you all.
