This is an off-topic thread; I hope this is the best area to post. I would like to start a discussion about energy efficient home construction and renovation topics.
I will start with windows. I recently moved into a 30 year old home, built pretty well for 30 years ago, still 30 years ago...
I'm planning on setting up my garage to do car washes at home. Not sure what my requirements would be given that the winters here can be brutal. Additionally, what type of waterproofing would I need to do to the walls(bathroom paint) and or floors(epoxy). Also, would the drain need to be...
I have just set up phone key on my new model 3. I now seem to be able to walk up to the car, unlock it and drive, just by having my phone in my pocket... perfect.
However, when I'm at home and the model 3 is in the driveway I notice that my phone is sometimes connected to the car. Does this...
Cabin Overheat Protection has an option to turn it off. I like to keep it on during the hot summer. Unfortunately when left on it keeps the vehicle from sleeping and leads to phantom power drain (not so phantom when we know what causes the drain).
It would be nice if we had the option to turn...

Are you or someone you know moving to the Denver area or looking for a Tesla Home? We moved, but it was not without some real heart tugging for the home that we created.
Not just any home but a:

No answers, only question!
If I buy an inverter, can I use the power in my Model S to power my house at night?
If yes...how do you get the power from car through inverter, to house use?
Seems like a good wheeze!
i prefer to keep car unlocked when parked at home, since it allows my son to get in the car before me. With auto locking this doesn't work. I don't want to disable auto locking feature, but would like to prevent it when parked at home
So we're debating wether or not if we should replace our current wall charger with a Tesla Wall Connector, but if we do I would love it if I could move it away from the house and closer to the parking space itself. But to do so I would need to put something in place that the Wall Connector could...
does anyone have any thoughts on home vs. service center delivery? I live 3+ hours from the closest service center so i have the option to do either, and my delivery specialist explained the difference was there is no new vehicle orientation with home delivery. Am I really missing out? I've been...
I'm still trying to decide if I should buy a HPWC or just install a NEMA 14-50, I stopped at the local hardware store and picked up on 14-50 outlet, it is different than the others i've seen and it doesn't say NEMA anywhere on it. I attached pictures and was wondering will this work if I got...
Would it be possible for a software change to use Tesla battery to feed power into the NEMA plug during a power outage? With 90 KW available, it would be super to be able to run the refrigerator and lights during an extended power outage.
In 2004 when we had four hurricanes in Florida I was...

Hi folks, I just ordered my Model S (85 non-performance) and am extremely excited to get ride of my gas guzzler. As I am waiting for the car to be built I was looking at getting the charging station installed (NEMA 14-50 with 50amp) at my place. I called the SolarCity recommended electrician to...
