Subject: [tabi] Ways to lower your energy bill - Sunday, 

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
<http://www.komando.com/toolbox.aspx?mode=print&id=9782#>  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

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 <http://www.komando.com/toolbox.aspx?mode=print&id=9782#>  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
<http://www.komando.com/toolbox.aspx?mode=print&id=9782#> . If you have a
Hotmail account you can use that.
