Energy savings


Steve Sullivan

Recommended Posts

I just got the utility bill the other day. Although I haven't had the equipment installed for the full billing cycle (shy about a week) I did see a 200+ kwph savings from last year for the same period. Around 1780 to 1549 or something.

 

We did also get a new refrigerator since last year so that I'm sure has some impact, although I don't think that much, as other months pre ISY-Insteon were similar.

 

I think the savings will increase significantly over the next few months once we settle into the system and I see full cycles.

 

Upon installing and setting up the programs I've turned the lights on and off a ridiculous amount of times. Since I'm not playing around with it as much now I can let the system do it's job.

 

I'm really looking forward to getting future data usage. Not the bill...Just the data

Figured I'd post some actual data on energy savings now that some time has gone by. I started installing the ISY and Insteon stuff in Nov of last year. Pretty much all lighting then I added thermostat control based on occupancy/bedtime a bit later.

 

I have electric hot water which I am currently not controlling but plan to in the future.

 

Want to add the energy meter soon as well.

 

This year we added a wood stove, which hopefully will prevent my oil furnace from kicking in too much.

 

This is the info from our provider. As you can tell there is a consistent difference in usage since installed. Not all months have shown a savings, not sure why. Maybe my electric food smoker rigged with the Stoker (awesome device by the way http://rocksbarbque.com played a part in that:)
