Efficient Homes

Efficient households may take a variety of steps to be more energy efficient, including using the thermostat to manage heating costs, turning off lights and devices when not in use and always running full loads in the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. While these homes use less energy than you, it might not be because their homes are more efficient – they may not be at home as often as you, or you may have life or health circumstances that mean you use more.
