Where Energy is Used in Your Home
The following electric energy use pattern is fairly common in many Tallahassee homes (all-electric homes heated and cooled with an electric heat pump).
- Heating or cooling the house ~60%
- Water heating ~15%
- Refrigeration ~13%
- Everything else (TV, lights, washer, dryer, cooking, etc.) ~12%
As you can see, the greatest opportunities for energy reduction are in heating and cooling.
