New Orleans Real Estate - Energy Audit

Have you ever thought about what makes up your energy usage? Every month you get a bill from Entergy here in New Orleans...have you ever thought about what is driving that high energy bill? I know I have! I just stumbled across a very interesting chart of what makes up a typical energy bill.  Granted this information is from the 2007 Buildings Energy Data Book, but I am sure these figures have not changed dramatically since then.

  • 31% Space Heating
  • 12% Space Cooling
  • 12% Water Heating
  • 11% Lighting
  • 9% Electronics/Computers
  • 9% Appliances
  • 8% Refrigeration
  • 8% Other

Ok, so I know we probably use our heaters a whole lot less in New Orleans than in other parts of the country! But this information is actually very helpful.  It shows us how important proper insulation and making sure that your doors and windows have a proper seal is to keeping energy costs down.
