I noticed that our electric company auditor left some brochures on my table. They were full of more tips!! A couple of points of interest in them were:
- If every household in the USA raised air conditioning temperatures by 6 degrees, we’d save the equivalent of 190,000 barrels of oil ever day!
- 15% of residential energy is used for heating water
- Another 15% goes for refrigerators and freezers
- 24% goes into lighting, cooking, and running appliances
