Average single home heating consumption

If heating consumption is low, there is less potential for savings

Fig. 3 Estimated average heating consumption in a single family home.

The graph in the above figure is based on the following formula (Gram-Hanssen 2005):

Annual heating consumption = 4816 kWH + (household area * 104 kWH/sqm)

Example: sqm housing = 100

Annual heating consumption (kWH) = 4816 + (100 * 104) 
                         = 4816 + 10400 
                         = 15216

In some cases it can be easier to use the formula instead of reading the graph. The results are only approximations, as the formula is based on the median of numerous calculations.
