Ed and Amy Kelly of Indianapolis, Ind., are excited about their recent kitchen remodeling. While their initial reason was to update the appearance of their kitchen, the couple realized that replacing the aged appliances would have a big energy-saving benefit. "We bought all new energy-efficient appliances because we would save money in the long run. We watch our bills very closely. Plus, we wanted to do our part to reduce energy consumption," Amy explains.

The Kellys would like to implement more energy-saving ideas and projects around the house that would make their home more energy efficient, but like most young homeowners, they're on a tight budget. Luckily there are plenty of home improvement options to fit anyone's budget--from free energy-saving tactics to more costly overhauls.
