Everyone likes a good analogy. How about this one:
When you check out at the grocery store, you’re not presented with a flat fee and no explanation with what you just bought. Instead, you receive an itemized list detailing exactly what you purchased and in what amounts. Of course! Well, why should your energy bill be a mystery? You would never take a receipt at the grocery store without knowing what you paid for which items, and your energy bill should be no different.
With Energy Insights, you can review a detailed graph outlining where energy was used in your house – right down to the appliance in some situations – and then see how much that usage cost you on that bill.
We’ve all heard about “keeping up with the Joneses,” but what about being better than them instead? Thanks to our Home Comparison Tool, you can compare your home’s energy usage patterns to people with homes like to yours. For example, we rate your home against people with similar square footage, homes with a pool like yours, others with multiple stories, and other characteristics. It’s a fantastic tool for detecting the home systems and appliances that aren’t operating efficiently – like your water heater or HVAC.
Sure, we all remember the times when the weather was extra crazy, but we don’t always remember how we used energy on those days and how it might have impacted our energy bills. When you check out the Heat Map Calendar, you’ll see exactly how you used energy on a given day – starting with deep green for low usage and ending at bright red for high usage. By helping you recognize past energy usage patterns, you can then make adjustments to your lifestyle and habits to impact future use.
And what good would all these colorful charts and graphs be without some helpful suggestions? We happily share tips to improve the energy efficiency of your home and world at Energy Insights and the Heat Map Calendar so you can adjust your habits to buy less of what we sell
Ultimately, this information puts you in charge of your home’s energy choices – just as it should be!
When you choose Direct Energy, the power of deregulated energy choice in the Lone Star State really is in your hands. You’re a Texan. You deserve it.
