Tesla roof tiles

Solar panels have been finding their way onto the roofs of homes for quite some time now but despite upholding a solid list of positives including helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and saving you money over time. There's no denying that they can be a serious eyesore. Tesla's rooftop solar tiles do exactly the same job as traditional solar panels which is to turn sunlight into electricity but instead of protruding out like an add-on accessory these solar tiles actually make up the construction of your roof allowing you to completely cover your rooftop without compromising the existing design of your home.

Tesla offers four different styles of solar roof tile textured, smooth, Tuscan and slate. All of which are manufactured using incredibly strong tempered glass making them up to three times more durable than the average roof tile. Installing these solar roof tiles in combination with a Tesla powerball will allow you to collect store and use green renewable energy for as long as the sun keeps shining with an initial investment of around 34,000 dollars for a two thousand square foot roof.

Installing Tesla roof tiles is competitive in price with other high-end roofing alternatives.

Self-cleaning windows

There are hundreds of great window cleaning products out there that make window cleaning easier from magnetic, double-sided cleaners to telescopic hose attachments but wouldn't it be better if you could skip the use of elbow grease altogether?

Self-cleaning windows are an incredibly useful feature to add to your home they work thanks to a very thin outer coating of titanium dioxide which is a white powdery compound commonly used to make things such as paint and toothpaste a bright white the 10 to 25 Nanometer deep coating is thin enough to go unnoticed but thick enough to keep your windows spotlessly clean without them ever needing to see a sponge or squeegee.


The coating works in two ways, firstly by reacting with daylight to break down organic dirt and secondly by making the glass hydrophilic or water loving. What this means is that instead of water droplets forming on the glass beading down and forming streaks, water molecules spread out evenly across the glass in a very even sheet so when rain hits the glass it spreads across it like a great big cloth cleaning it in the process. Self-cleaning glass is often used on skylights and conservatories however it can be used on any windows throughout your home.

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is the smartest way to create a warm and comfortable home the sort of welcoming environment that every homeowner desires.
