Hi Mary Beth,

Somehow I missed your comment about reading Home Energy magazine here on Home Energy Pros....Home Energy magazine is a co-sponsor of this community and often post blogs here with links back to their website but to read their free articles you should go to homeenergy.org. They have many articles that are free to read, but it's best to get a subscription to read all their articles.
