Home Energy Suite

The HomeEnergySuite gives customers the opportunity to conduct a self analysis on their home and review scenarios that will help them save energy and money. The online calculator features a quick, one-screen form that asks users about a dozen questions about their home and provides an estimate of the home’s monthly and annual energy use. 

The calculator can be used to consider making a change, like reducing your home’s water heater temperature. Other changes include adjusting heating settings down or cooling settings up; reducing air leaks in the home; adding insulation; installing storm windows; or changing out a heating system. Just click “Calculate” after each change to see the difference in their monthly energy bill.

HomeEnergySuite also provides a big-picture look at overall home energy usage. Clicking the suite’s “Chart” button provides a pie chart with the percentage break-down of total annual energy use by appliance or system type. Other features of this online tool include a library of energy information, energy savings tips, and the option to receive an e-mail report that includes steps for taking action to save energy in the home.
