Easy Energy Usage Calculator - Tips


Important

The most important thing to remember when using the calculator is to only enter the appliances in use at the current time. For example, in the summer time the use of your furnace or boiler is minimal, so for calculating usage in summer months leave the heating options out. On the other hand, if you own an air conditioner you would select it in the summer time but not in the winter.
