A quick follow-up on my post from July 19, Home Energy Efficiency Project. Much to my great disappointment, our electric consumption increased 10 percent over August 2012. We are completely perplexed as we cannot recall any significant energy outlay last month and we put so much time, energy, and money into reducing our energy consumption. We re-reviewed all the energy saving advice available and other than the extremely expensive projects of replacing our windows and a/c unit, we’ve done just about everything. My husband has contacted the power company to see if there is anything we missed or if they can supply us with information on where the energy leak may be. Stay tuned. . .
