Is your electricity bill a real shocker?

If the answer is yes, the first step in reducing costs is targeting the two major electricity guzzlers found in most households — heating equipment and air conditioners.

Electric water heaters and clothes dryers also account for two other major expenses that show up on your bill.

Once you see the savings that are generated by energy efficiency and lower consumption, you may also want to look into smaller ways to save. Look into sealants around doors and windows, and check out smaller household appliances that are more energy efficient. Remodeling and landscaping tips may also help.

Around the Web, check out more facts and information on how to save money on the those monthly electricity bills, and join the legions of homeowners who are "going green" and cutting dependency on foreign oil — in a fight to both cut costs and save the environment.
