April 15 is just a month away and if you haven’t already filed your taxes, you still have time to remember any energy-efficient home improvements you made in 2011. They can earn federal tax credits for you.

The Alliance to Save Energy says you can get up to $500 back on your 2011 income tax return for energy-efficient products you installed in your home in 2011. That includes things like insulation, a roof, exterior doors and windows, water heaters and furnaces.
