The High Cost of Home Heating

I was a bit dismayed when I discovered that my energy bill for the past month was over $300 dollars. I don't know about you, but I can think of many more interesting things to do with my hard-earned money than to contribute it to the already over-flowing coffers of the local utility company.

Then it struck me that I myself was partially to blame for the high costs of my energy bill. While I have made some efforts over the previous two years to make my home more energy efficient, I still have a long way to go. The problem is that, being a rather impractical academic, I really didn't know where to begin to conserve energy in my home.

That's when I came across a government site that provided the opportunity to perform a home energy audit on-line. The site is located at and I, for one, found it extremely useful.

Like me, if you are seriously interested in living a more sustainable lifestyle, give this site a try. If nothing else, it may save you a few dollars that you can probably put to much better use.
