Have you ever heard of passive income? It is a term describing money gained while no significant action is taken on your part, such as rent taken in from a rental property you own. While this might not be for you, there are ways to minimize expenses that once implemented won’t require much maintenance or work on your part. Take a Trombe wall for example. While these usually only bring a good return on your investment in particular climates, they are a prime example of adjustments to your home that will save you money.
A Trombe wall has a dark surface facing the sun and then a large thermal mass behind it that collects all that heat from the sun. The heat is then released into your home slowly over time long after the weather outside gets cooler during the night. This will save a lot of energy while equalizing the temperature in a home over the course of the day.
