How many appliances? How much energy your appliances use? Identify appropriate EE&C measures. Basic Energy Audits Source: WAP Program, Florida
Average Monthly Appliance Costs (Based on P10 per kWh)
Cooling Tips Purchase air conditioning unit with higher Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER); Install in coolest and shady part of the room; Reduction of heat gain; Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) AIR CONDITIONING UNIT
Cooling Tips Set the thermostat at comfortable temperature; Use fans in conjunction with your air conditioning unit; Seal and insulate ductwork; Keep your air conditioning unit clean; and Have your cooling system checked annually. AIR CONDITIONING UNIT
Cooling Tips ELECTRIC FAN Set fan setting at comfortable level; Use fan with timer; Switch off oscillator; Regular cleaning; and Use hand fan.
