Keeping up with the Joneses—How does your energy use compare?


There is an interesting article in today’s NY times Utilities Turn Their Customers Green, With Envy  about comparing energy use between neighboring homes.  This might be a way to motivate people, especially now that having the biggest SUV on the block may not have the appeal that it once did. 


Our customers are definitely interested to know how their utility bills and some of our diagnostic tests compare to similar homes in the neighborhood.  We never disclose what an individual home’s usage or results are without the owner’s permission!  But we can talk in generalities about what we see in the area.  We’ve hosted on our website EPA’s Home Energy Yardstick a simple tool that can give you a rough idea of how your home measures up.  Check it out and see how your home stacks up.  And contact us if you’d like a more comprehensive assessment and a prescription tailored to you and your home.
