The house is in its 40’s and was built by the man that lived in it before us. Because of its old age the insulation is also very old and not good enough to support my house. This is causing us to use more heat and electricity. If we were to replace the insulation and maybe even look into solar panels, although they are very expensive, that would make a significant impact on our housing footprint.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
