What house has a built in energy meter?  The YesHaus of course!  This is like having a speedometer on your home and a way to record and measure your energy use.  What better way to know where you stand and what to expect on your bill?  The image you see is from an actual YesHaus reading that we took on March 21.

Look at how low the readings are on each gauge shown. This screenshot of the actual dashboard indicates a predicted home heating cost of only $9.19 for the month of March and in Montana no less!  We got so excited about this that our team can't stop talking about it.  Some of us are even drawing weird graphs on the backs of envelopes and sharing our findings at odd hours of the day and night.  Let's just say we are VERY PLEASED with the results!
