About a month ago, my utility corporation sent an text letting me know that my energy consumption seriously increased. Under normal circumstances, I would be surprised by this text because I am a creature of habit and I’m honestly conservative when it comes to energy consumption in my home. Well, the reason for the increase was that I had family members staying with me for 2 weeks and during that time, my buddy and I cooked a lot, watched lots of TV, did laundry, spent a lot of time in the cooling system, and so much more. 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 text and deleted it from my inbox, and but in hindsight, I should have saved the text because it provided energy saving tips. It was well documented and provided data on where I consumed the most energy. Of course, it was from my Heating and Air Conditioning unit. According to the text, my Heating and Air Conditioning machine is responsible for 51% of the energy consumption in my home. And 51% sounds like a immense portion of the bill, considering all the other machines, appliances, and other devices that I have in my home. Aside from the refrigerator, the Heating and Air Conditioning machine is the appliance that runs the most, so that it could keep my household comfortable. And there really isn’t much else I can do to conserve energy. I already keep the temperature controls at the recommended temperature of 78 degrees, and I also get the machine diagnosed yearly. Of course, my utility corporation doesn’t know this, all they have is the data that they collect.
