If anyone has previously brought this up, I couldn’t find it.
I like the Similar Homes comparison, but one major aspect that seems to be missing to me is comparing available types of utilities. For instance, I’m always higher average wattage than the majority of similar homes according to Sense, but it doesn’t seem to allow for the fact that I’m on 100% electricity. Therefore, I assume I’m being compared to homes that cook with gas, for instance. Or in the winter, heating with oil (which is common in my area) or gas, when again I’m using electric (geothermal in my case).
I realize the Similar Homes comparison right now only accounts for location and square footage, but I’d love to see how I compare against other 100% electric homes. Do I really have very high usage for my square footage, or is it just because I run everything on electric?
