Tax Credits for home improvements that are Energy Efficient

Thinking of increasing your Energy Efficiency, going green or just need to make some new home improvements?  For many of the home improvement projects now come with Federal tax credits.  For instance, do you need or want new windows installed in your home?  Do you need a new furnace or air conditioner?  There are new tax credits available to you.
