Hello gang: 

Just in time for the energy debate. It's Kim Komando's cool site of the day!


Winter is on the way. For many people that means increased energy use to combat 
the cold. And that means you're spending more money.

Using energy more efficiently can help save you money. But figuring out how to 
be more efficient is tough. Fortunately, you don't have to do it alone.

Microsoft has an energy-calculating site called Hohm. Just enter your house's 
street address. Hohm will pull its estimated energy use based on public 
records. You can also enter more specific information for a better estimate.

Hohm provides an energy cost breakdown. That helps you see where your energy is 
going. It then offers some helpful solutions. That includes current tax credits 
for replacing inefficient appliances. Or it might suggest procedures for 
sealing up air leaks. There are dozens of things you can try.

You will need to sign in to get the solutions. However, it only requires a free 
Microsoft Live account. If you have a Hotmail account you can use that.
