Managing Energy Cost
In order to really know how to save on your energy consumption it's important to understand how the electric company determines your rate and how much of energy your home requires to sustain your comfort.
According to my calculation, which I derived from ENERGY.GOV, the average household of 5 people can save $52 a month using a water heater timer set to 4 hrs a day. 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening and never run out of hot water!
The more people that use the energy in a house, the longer the appliance has to run to re-coop what is lost.
When you are serious about saving energy, you have to look at your insulation, windows, doors and the condition of your major appliances.
Average kW/hr is 9 cents. I'm using $7.5 cents as a base here in Ohio
