9 ways to cut your energy bills

An attic-to-basement primer on amping up energy efficiency and cutting your power bill this winter.

Get audited

The problem: Your power bills seem suspiciously high.

The solution: For $250 to $800, an energy auditor will do a detailed diagnosis of your home, identifying problems and possible solutions.

Find auditors via the Building Performance Institute or Residential Energy Services Network -- and ask your utility provider if an audit qualifies you for a rebate.
