Efficiency First Kansas City shows home and business owners how to cut costs on energy bills by making the buildings more efficient.

"Air sealing and insulation is going to be the best bang for your buck and it can save up to 50 percent on your utility bill," said Samantha Geier, one of the volunteers with the organization.

Another way -- replace your windows. That's an expensive fix, but KCP&L helps customers offset the cost with rebates.

"People are usually surprised because they don't really think about it because here in Kansas City we are not the most extreme hot or extreme cold, but there are a lot of way to be energy efficient," said Geier.

The last day to get KCP&L rebates, which equal $75 for each energy efficient window installed, is November 14.

"We have lots of rebates at KCP&L and windows was one particular rebate that we had that we didn't have much participation in and we thought there were some other opportunities to focus on some other rebates," said Brian File with the energy company.

While the rebates on windows come to a close, KCP&L urges customers to take advantage of other programs like insulation for your walls and attic, window and door sealant and energy efficient appliances.

"You're saving now and saving later, that is one thing we are trying to educate customers on," said File.
