My brother argues against it, but I am glad they finally got the solar heater because when I visit, the heater in the pool helps me enjoy it.
I have never been as successful as my brothers and sisters have been, especially my brothers. They all seem to have done so much better for themselves than I have. My brother Patrick was able to retire at 57 years old. I will be 57 in a few months and am still paying off debt and have no savings. My brother Jim lives in a gigantic house with a pool. I suspect his heating and cooling bills are more than my salary. My brother Kevin lives in a big house with a pool, and his wife stays home. They have this really amazing house with all sorts of cool stuff in it. The heater for the pool is a solar heater, which is really cool. They have HVAc with zone control so the a/c upstairs is set higher in the summer and the heating is set cooler in the winter, that is unless someone is staying with them and staying in the upstairs bedrooms. Downstairs, they have a/c sensors that determine whether or not someone is in a room. If the room is empty, the smart thermostat adjusts the air conditioning in that room until the a/c sensors sense movement in there again. I remember when his wife wanted to get a heater for the pool. My brother argues against it, but I am glad they finally got the solar heater because when I visit, the heater in the pool helps me enjoy it. In addition, Kevin has a huge Toyota that uses so much gas I can’t even imagine filling it up. He’s been working from home for the longest time now, and that is really nice, too. He has a side hustle where he buys and sells vacant land, and he seems successful with that, as well.
