About a month ago, my utility company sent an email letting me know that my energy consumption extremely increased, then under normal circumstances, I would be surprised by this email because I am a creature of habit plus I’m truly conservative when it comes to energy consumption in my home, then well, the reason for the increase was that I had family members staying with me for 2 weeks plus during that time, we cooked a lot, watched lots of TV, did laundry, spent a lot of time in the A/C, plus so much more, then so, naturally, with an extra 4 people in my house, this would trigger more energy consumption.
Since there was no need for alarm, I just learn the email plus deleted it from my inbox.
But in hindsight, I should have saved the email because it gave energy saving tips. It was well documented plus gave data on where I consumed the most energy. Of course, it was from my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit. According to the email, my Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit is responsible for 51% of the energy consumption in my home. And 51% sounds like a large portion of the bill, considering all the other machines, appliances, plus other devices that I have in my home. Aside from the refrigerator, the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C unit is the appliance that runs the most, so that it could keep my property comfortable. And there actually isn’t much else I can do to conserve energy. I already keep the thermostats at the recommended temperature of 73 degrees, plus I also get the unit tested yearly. Of course, my utility company doesn’t know this, all they have is the data that they collect.
