"Cash for Caulkers"

If you have been listening to the news at all lately, you may have been hearing about President Obama talking about his Homestar program (otherwise known as "Cash for Caulkers"). For those of you who haven't heard about this, let us explain.

Mr. Obama was recently at a Home Depot in Alexandria, Virginia to talk about this program. The basic idea of this program is to help you make your home energy efficient. The program's goal is to offer incentives for things like winterization to new doors and windows, and appliances including refrigerators, washers and air conditioning units. The program may offer a 50% rebate on the cost of the equipment as well as the installation, up to $12,000 per household. In addition to the rebate, installing energy efficient appliances or windows and doors could end up saving homeowners up to 20% on their energy bills.
