1/ Homeowners can get guaranteed high returns through energy savings projects (thread)

I've done many of them myself and now have ridiculously low energy bills, which PERMANENTLY lowers a fixed-cost

Here are 15 ideas

2/ Install LED lightbulbs everywhere

A few hundred dollars cover the whole house

Easy and ROI well over 100%
3/ Programmable thermostat

ROI 25% to 100%+ depending on how advanced you go
4/ Seal door/window/basement/attic air leaks w/ caulk or Great Stuff

ROI 50%+

ROI 50%+ depending on model
6/ Insulate water heater
