With stocks plummeting, home heating prices soaring and money tight, many people looks toward winter with fear and trepidation. One of the best ways to alleviate this fear is to take a positive action like having a home energy audit.
Almost half of our energy use goes into heating and cooling our homes. We are already paying an average of 20 percent higher home heating costs, so any way you can reduce your costs will pay for it. A professional home energy audit costs $100-$300, but if you take their recommendations, you will quickly make that money back.

Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver on Thursday unveiled new property tax reform legislation that would revise the state’s arbitration system by requiring the emphasis be placed on protecting taxpayers. In announcing the legislation, the Democratic legislative leaders noted the overhaul is necessary and overdue to put the system back in balance. “Rare, outlandish arbitrator awards that have caused property taxes to spike in some communities do stand out and have made a strong case for reform,” said Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Cumberland/Salem). “This reform will return much needed balance to a system that desperately needs it. When I stood with the Governor in July, I said the Senate would give local officials this vital tool, and here we are.”
