Donna, Mid Amer Energy our fuel provider.   It is free and you get energy 
saving light bulbs, insulation wrap for pipes & water heater, efficient shower 
head and a programmable thermostat which does cost $30 installed.   They have a 
computer program that reviews your past costs with your home data & then come

     I'm sure you know new homes are not necessarily efficient.   This was a 
major objective of ours as   we stuffed insulation in any possible place there 
was after the construction workers did their job.   Our attic is waist deep 
in insulation & of course the extra thick walls certainly help.   We have
