How Much Is Really Saved?

In Wichita Kansas where I hold my real estate license energy conservation and efficiency is not as well promoted as it is in other parts of the country and the world.

It’s often pondered by consumers just how much money is actually saved in utilizing energy efficient programs, improvements and products. After all making a home energy efficient is in itself an expense. Here are some numbers calculated by greenandsave.com. Measurements are based on a 2,500 sq ft home.

Programmable Thermostat $115 $180 $1,800 156%
CFL $60 $80 $800 133%
Standby power reduction $20 $24 $240 120%
