This is a free US Government calculator to help you decide which energy options will save you money. All you need is your electric/gas bill and you can create an upgrade report, then edit it to contain only the things that make sense to you. The finished product will show how much money you would spend, how much you would save (in dollars, KWH, and CO2 emissions), simple payback time and return on investment. I found that if I spend $3370 to:
1. seal the ductwork
2. replace windows with premium windows
3. replace heat pump
I will see a $338 per year savings after 8 years.

SmartFlix is a service that rents video DVDs - just like your corner video store... but they rent the kind of videos that you can't find on every street corner. Videos on running lathes, making glass beads, welding steel, oil painting, building guitars... cool videos! Rent online, at any time of day, and get the videos shipped straight to you (with return postage included free!).
