Buying my first home. Would like to save on bills by utilizing wind energy/solar power, waste oil heaters, insulate home good, and switching lights to florescence/leds.
Any other ideas people got out there?
You can get a federal tax credit for up to $1,500 for making “green” improvements to the home. There are details of it here http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=tax_credits.tx_index and it also lists different improvements, which may give you some ideas of what to do as well.
Some of the things I didn’t see you mention were geothermal heat pumps and thermopanel windows.
