Geographic Comparison helps you compare your equipment usage and home energy efficiency to similar homes in your state or province.
In the monthly energy reports you receive every month you can see where your home ranks in your state or province. In the example below the home is among the top 25% in terms of energy efficiency.
This number is based on the amount of HVAC runtime that your home has saved during the month (learn about how we calculate runtime savings here) and compares it with the runtime savings that homes with a similar equipment and size have in your state or province. This ensures that we compare your home’s savings with homes that have similar climate conditions.
To improve your geographic comparison, increase your runtime savings throughout the month. More on how to increase savings here.
