What am I doing wrong?
We recently built a home and tried to take extra measures with regard to energy efficiency. We put Geothermalheating and cooling; we put windows with high u values and solar heat gain coefficient, upgraded both wall and attic insulation, put radiant barrierin attic, tile roof.... We have been living in the house few months and our average usage is a whapping 4500 KW/ month -more than twice the average energystar calculated for a house our size in the area.
We live in Texas. 3900sq ft air conditioned space; well water pump, pool pump operating 8 hrs/day, sewer pump, electric clothes washer, dishwasher, new energy eff. refrigeratoe,two computers and miscellaneous kitchen appliances - What am I missing? Where is it all going?
