1 Thank you for completing the Online Home Energy Audit. Based on the answers that you provided in the questionnaire, the following is a complete analysis of your household's energy consumption. We have included tables and charts that show how your household uses energy and how much various appliances cost you to operate. We have also listed possible ways to reduce your bill by improving the energy-efficiency of your home. Following the recommended energy-saving tips will allow you to discover ways of making better use of your electricity and get the most for your energy dollar. In addition, these energy efficient improvements will help you do your part in conserving our nation s valuable natural resources. You will receive your 8 compact fluorescent lamps by mail in approximately 2-4 weeks. If you have any questions regarding your audit results, please call our representative at , Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., and we will be happy to help. Meanwhile, take a few minutes to read this report and start putting some of these money-saving ideas to work for you

2 Electrical Usage This table shows how much electricity you use to operate your electic appliances and how much it costs. It also shows the percentage of your total electric bill that each appliance represents. All major appliances are listed, but small household appliances like vacuum cleaners and electric toothbrushes are grouped into a category entitled "All Other Uses". The term kwh (kilowatt hour) is a measure of electrical energy. Your electrical bill is based on how many of these units you consume plus a monthly base charge, taxes, and minor fees required by state legislators. Appliance Annual Electricity Use* Total Cost (April 4, April 4, 2008) Average Daily Cost Total Use kwh Air conditioning $ $1.93 7, % Swimming Pool Pumps $ $0.72 2, % Water Heating $ $0.67 2, % Refrigerators $ $0.53 2, % Lights $ $0.39 1, % Laundry $ $0.34 1, % Central heating $81.40 $ % Cooking $64.42 $ % Fans $58.19 $ % All Other Uses $51.83 $ % Microwave Oven $25.69 $ % Dishwashers $22.11 $ % Televisions $21.56 $ % Stereos $13.91 $ % Percentage of Total kwh Used TOTAL $2, $ , % *Annual Electricity Use is based on 12 months of your electric bills. These estimates may not reflect your actual 12 month billing history due to miscellaneous account credits, adjustments, or charges.

3 Monthly Trend Your Monthly Energy Usage (May 1, April 1, 2008) This chart shows your monthly energy cost for the specified period. Variations in your billings can be due to many reasons - some of which are beyond your control, such as weather conditions and number of days in the billing cycle. Other changes such as additional appliances and lifestyle changes will also have an affect on the billing. An asterisk (*) beside the name of a month denotes that your energy consumption for that period was adjusted, prorated, or estimated by Tampa Electic.

4 Summary This page summarizes the energy-conserving measures, described on the following pages, that you can implement in your home The utility does not warrant or guarantee the audit findings or recommendations nor is the utility liable as a result of the audit for the acts or omissions of any person who implements or attempts to implement those conservation measures found and recommended by the audit. Tampa Electric Recommended Measures and Practices Estimated Annual Savings Estimated Payback Have Your Duct System Sealed $100 - $ yrs Raise Thermostat Setting Of Central Air Conditioner $53 - $65 Raise Cooling Temperature When Not At Home Change Your Air Conditioner Filter Monthly Maintain Your Cooling Systems Replace Old Appliances With High-Efficiency Models Install Faucet Aerators $14 - $23 0.9yrs Repair Leaking Water Pipes, Faucets And Showers Turn Off Your Water Heater When Your Home Is Vacant Replace Incandescent Lamps With Energy Efficient Lamps Seal Your Home Against Air Infiltration Replace Your Water Heater With A Heat Pump System $98 - $ yrs Supplement Water Heater With Heat Recovery System $81 - $ yrs Install Electrical Outlet Gaskets Use Shades To Reduce Heat Gain In The Summer Open Shades During The Heating Season Replace Old Doors With Modern Insulating Types Fix Refrigerator Door Seals Clean Refrigerator Coils

5 Tips Listed here are money-saving measures that apply specifically to your account. Estimated first-year savings are based upon engineering assumptions and approximations. Actual energy savings may differ from those estimated due to variations in individual energy use habits and home characteristics. In addition, the total energy savings from the installation of more than one measure may be less that the sum of energy savings of measures installed individually. The range of estimated costs is based on average market prices and will vary depending on your selection of contractors and/or quality of merchandise you choose to install. Have Your Duct System Sealed Approximate Annual Savings: $100 - $135 The Florida Solar Energy Center reports, "The single largest energy waste in existing Florida homes occurs as the result of leakage in air conditioning duct systems." The joints of your ductwork are sealed with tape or mastic which may exhibit mechanical fatigue or failure over time and allow "good" air to escape into the attic. Also, return air cavities constructed as an integral part of your wall or closet generally have significant openings or cracks that allow hot air to be drawn into the airstream causing your air conditioning unit to run longer than necessary. This wastes energy and your money! Tampa Electric can help with identifying and sealing these problem areas. Our DuctWorks program will have a trained professional appraise your home's duct system, seal any leaks and help minimize future leaks - all for the affordable fee of only $79*! *Extensive repairs or replacement of existing duct work will increase customer payment. Raise Thermostat Setting Of Central Air Conditioner Approximate Annual Savings: $53 - $65 Raise the thermostat setting of your central air conditioner and save on cooling costs. We suggest that you keep your cooling thermostat set at 78 degrees or higher to achieve the above savings. A cooling savings of 6-8% per degree will occur. Raise Cooling Temperature When Not At Home If you leave your home unoccupied for 4 hours or more, you can save money by raising the air conditioning temperature by at least 4 degrees Fahrenheit. A cooling savings of 6-8% per degree will occur while you're away. For maximum savings, turn your air conditioning unit(s) completely "off" when your home is unoccupied. Change Your Air Conditioner Filter Monthly For optimum performance of your air conditioner, you should clean or replace the filter each month or as needed. Maintain Your Cooling Systems Periodic servicing may help your air conditioning system run more efficiently. Additional benefits may include longer life and lower maintenance costs. Contact a reputable heating and air conditioning contractor in your area to determine if your system needs service.

6 Tips Listed here are money-saving measures that apply specifically to your account. Estimated first-year savings are based upon engineering assumptions and approximations. Actual energy savings may differ from those estimated due to variations in individual energy use habits and home characteristics. In addition, the total energy savings from the installation of more than one measure may be less that the sum of energy savings of measures installed individually. The range of estimated costs is based on average market prices and will vary depending on your selection of contractors and/or quality of merchandise you choose to install. Replace Old Appliances With High-Efficiency Models If you're planning to replace any of your appliances soon, remember to check the ENERGYGUIDE rating for the more efficient models. While these units may cost more to purchase, they are less expensive in the long run because they require less energy to operate. Install Faucet Aerators Approximate Annual Savings: $14 - $23 Faucet aerators on your kitchen and bathroom faucets reduce water flow, saving energy and water. Lower hot water usage means a lower hot water bill for you. Aerators can be purchased for about $3.20 at most hardware stores, and you can install them yourself. Repair Leaking Water Pipes, Faucets And Showers If you have any water pipes that leak, be sure to repair them promptly. Turn Off Your Water Heater When Your Home Is Vacant If you leave home for two days or more, you can save money by turning off your electric water heater at the breaker or switch. Most water heaters are capable of reheating the water to the set temperature in about an hour. Replace Incandescent Lamps With Energy Efficient Lamps There are many energy-saving choices you can make when selecting light bulbs for your home, inside and out. Fluorescent tubes are an efficient way to light workshops and playrooms. For other rooms inside your home, compact fluorescent bulbs can be installed in many standard lamp fixtures and give you approximately the same amount of light for about one quarter of the energy drawn by an ordinary incandescent bulb. Compact fluorescents also have a rated life span ten times longer than incandescents. Some fluorescent lamps can also be used outside, or try high-pressure sodium, halogen or high-efficiency incandescent bulbs for energy savings. Other savings can be attained by photocells, motion detectors, or dimmer switches to control your lighting use.

7 Tips Listed here are money-saving measures that apply specifically to your account. Estimated first-year savings are based upon engineering assumptions and approximations. Actual energy savings may differ from those estimated due to variations in individual energy use habits and home characteristics. In addition, the total energy savings from the installation of more than one measure may be less that the sum of energy savings of measures installed individually. The range of estimated costs is based on average market prices and will vary depending on your selection of contractors and/or quality of merchandise you choose to install. Seal Your Home Against Air Infiltration Caulking and weather-stripping is not limited to windows and doors. Examples of such places include where the wooden sill of the house meets the foundation, where dryer vents and fan covers pass through the wall, where plumbing pipes and telephone wires enter the house, and around electric outlets on outside walls. Look for these cracks on the interior and exterior of your house and seal appropriately. Replace Your Water Heater With A Heat Pump System Approximate Annual Savings: $98 - $146 Replacing your water heater with a dedicated heat pump will reduce your energy costs and provide ample amounts of hot water year round. A heat pump water heater can reduce hot water costs by up to 50% or more. The cost of implementing this measure ranges from $704 to $1056. Supplement Water Heater With Heat Recovery System Approximate Annual Savings: $81 - $122 Supplementing your electric water heater with a heat recovery system will reduce your energy costs. Heat recovery systems take the waste heat from your air conditioner and deliver it to your water heater. The cost of implementing this measure ranges from $531 to $649. Install Electrical Outlet Gaskets Energy loss occurs through the electrical switch and outlet covers. To reduce these losses, install inexpensive gaskets underneath the covers. The gaskets cost about $0.45 a piece and are available at most hardware stores. Use Shades To Reduce Heat Gain In The Summer Shading windows with eastern or western exposure can help reduce unwanted summer heat gain. It is also advisable to keep your drapes closed on these windows during the day. Open Shades During The Heating Season To take advantage of the sun's warmth in the winter, leave window shades or drapes open during the daytime.

8 Tips Listed here are money-saving measures that apply specifically to your account. Replace Old Doors With Modern Insulating Types Modern insulating doors are much more energy-efficient than older wooden ones, and can also offer better security. Most of these new doors come with magnetic weatherstripping that seals just like a refrigerator door. So when it's time to replace a door, do it with a new insulated type. It can save you money and make your home more comfortable all year around. Fix Refrigerator Door Seals Cracked or broken refrigerator door seals allow energy to escape. Check for signs of wear or deterioration on a regular basis. If you have any refrigerators with broken seals, be sure to have them replaced promptly. Clean Refrigerator Coils Cleaning the coils beneath or behind your refrigerator/s helps them operate more efficiently. Dust accumulation can block airflow and act as an insulator preventing heat from dissipating. Estimated first-year savings are based upon engineering assumptions and approximations. Actual energy savings may differ from those estimated due to variations in individual energy use habits and home characteristics. In addition, the total energy savings from the installation of more than one measure may be less that the sum of energy savings of measures installed individually. The range of estimated costs is based on average market prices and will vary depending on your selection of contractors and/or quality of merchandise you choose to install.
