I have been hard at work. Well podcasting and doing home work. The home work is the utility bill analysis. Listen to the podcast, check us on twitter. Do your home work and Tweet me your home work? Sum up 12 months of utility bills. Take a picture of that sheet and tweet it to me with the has tag #DoThatSheet.
This exercise will help you determine the cost per square foot. Take the total cost for a year of electric, gas, fuel oil or whatever you use to power your house. Then divide that by the square footage of the conditioned space of your house. For the rest of the details, listen to the full podcast. For those of you who will just listen to the last 2 minutes I will tell you how it ends. If you are about $1/SF you are doing pretty good.
