Homeowners should make it their New Year's resolution to make sure they have the right company and really know what they want to see in their new kitchen, bath or add on. There are wonderful options available for most budgets, so use this time now to connect with the right contractor and make a plan.

A Smart Investment in any Season
According to the US Department of Energy, leaky and inefficient windows, skylights and doors account for up to 25 percent of the average household's energy bills. Some sources estimate as high as 40 percent.
The colder or hotter the climate, the greater you're heating or cooling costs and the greater potential you have to save money on energy costs. Nearly everyone can benefit by replacing leaky, inefficient windows with modern energy-efficient windows. Depending on your location, you can cut energy costs by as much as 15 percent.

$200 Rebates for Washing Machines still Available
When you purchase a high-efficiency washing machine with a water factor of 4.0 or less, you can score a $200 rebate. Your new machine will typically use about half as much water as a standard machine and, with this rebate, the price is now comparable to much-less-efficient washers. The list of eligible machines is available at local appliance retailers. www.scvh2oprograms.com
