Summer Home Improvement Audits
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Lance_Winslow]Lance Winslow

We sure heard a lot about energy efficiency these days and we realize that in the new alternative energy Obama Stimulus Package there is money available for low income people to put insulation in their homes to save money on electricity, and natural gas in the winter times. Of course, this also helps in the summertime and there are a number of things that people can do to improve the temperature and indoor climate of their homes to save energy.

Every American owes it to themselves to do a summer energy home improvement audit. Many times the local utility company will come out for free and help you design a program that will help you save energy on air-conditioning for instance. There are many things you can do to shield the sun's heat from coming into your home at certain times of the day. For instance, you might get special blinders, outside angled shading, or front door weather stripping. All these things can help you.

There are even things you can do that hardly cost anything, such as getting a tune-up on your air conditioner. Did you know you can go online to your local utility company and there will be tips on ways you can save money during the summer on your energy needs?

Best of all it's all free and the information is right there. Then it's just a matter of fixing a couple of items in order to save the money. Once you fix the problems, your savings will go on, and you will be paying less on your energy bills each month. Please consider all this.
