An Energy Efficient House Saves You Money

The Home Energy Saver website has a useful tool for determining how much you spend on energy and how much having a more energy efficient house can save you. You can easily save 500 or more dollars a year if your house is currently equipped with insufficient insulation, single pain windows and/or old appliances.

Replacing appliances and windows is an expensive proposition but atleast you can factor in the yearly savings when making a purchasing decision. Some improvements are pretty easy to do youself and pay off quickly. Like installing insulation around your water heater. Installing insulation under your house and in your attic can also be done relatively cheaply if you do it yourself.
