Your local electricity provider offers energy audits of your home. Schedule for a representative to visit your home and walk through tips for saving energy. Tips can range from changing incandescent light bulbs to compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) to washing clothes in cold water in the laundry room. Energy audits are usually a free service, and will help you learn about your home, and saving money.
