The following energy-saving tip is brought to you by CleanEdison.

Tonight when you get home from work or school, call your utility company and ask what incentives they have for you to get an energy audit for your home. Many utilities have been offering free energy audits for years, but very few people have actually taken advantage.

In case you’re unfamiliar, an energy audit is an assessment of your home by a certified energy rater in which they use diagnostic equipment to determine a list of recommendations for how you can improve the efficiency (and comfort) of your home.

If your utility offers free or discounted audits, make an appointment for after April, so you’ll have done most of the easy stuff before he/she gets there.
