Microsoft launched a new “Hohm ZIP code pages” for every ZIP code (postal code) in the country—all 42,000+ of them. “Visitors to Microsoft Hohm will see a new home page where we will display the energy cost breakdown for an average home in any given ZIP code. That information will include how much is spent annually on heating, appliances, and lighting, as well as amount of money the average household in that ZIP code could save each year through smarter energy use. Consumers can refine their energy use and compute potential energy savings by simply entering their home’s square footage and year built. From there, visitors can explore Energy Saving Tips area, where they’ll find top energy savings recommendations for their ZIP code. As always, consumers who want more personalized tips and recommendations can build a free Hohm profile. The more information consumers share about their home and their energy use, the more precise Microsoft Hohm can be in suggesting energy-saving recommendations.
