How do my most efficient neighbors manage to use so much less energy than me?
The most efficient homes are likely taking a variety of savings approaches. These might include:
- Adjusting or programming their thermostats to manage heating and cooling costs
- Turning off lights and home electronics when not in use
- Running only full laundry and dishwasher loads
- Installing more efficient heating/air-conditioning systems, water heaters, or appliances
You can find personalized ways to save on your Home Electric Report.
