Renewable energy systems for your home – a good idea or not?

I read somewhere that people might be put off buying a house because it has renewable energy technologies installed!
It was quite a shock to me to read that! I can’t see how the idea of lower (or no) fuel bills would be unattractive to anyone! I suppose though if you don’t understand the technologies involved then you might worry about maintenance of systems.
Solar panels should be washed down once a year apparently – but that could be done by your window cleaner perhaps! Air source heat pumps need leaves removing from around them and that’s about it! Whilst systems can be checked to make sure they’re working right these checks are fairly simple and easy – and are often included as part of installation plans.

Would you say no to free heating and electricity?
