Knowing where the big energy users are will help you be come a better enegry manager. The heating/air conditioning uses 55%,water heating 20%,freezes/refrigerators 8% ,lighting,tv's,stereos & radios 8%, food preparation 5%, and clothes dryer/dishwasher 4%.
Five simple steps to conserve energy are 1) set the a/c heaing system thermostat to 78 degrees in the summer and 68 degrees in the winter. 2) set the hotwater heater thermostat to 120 degrees or on medium. 3) replace air filters every 30 days. 4) use energy efficient light bulds when replacing them. 5) seal air leaks.
