Title: Home Energy Capstone PDF

Creator: Pratte, John
Publisher: Kennesaw State University
Description: This capstone activity uses the results of the Home Energy Audit and the Home Energy Analysis activities to investigate how changes in lifestyle affect the amount of energy used in the home. Students will listen to a National Public Radio show that discusses the energy efficiency of home appliances and their sales to see if any of the issues mentioned relate to their willingness to make similar investments. Then, they will examine the costs and benefits of making changes to their homes to improve energy efficiency by performing an economic analysis of three home improvements to determine how many years it would take to pay off the investment and decide whether these scenarios would be economically feasible.
