"MYMETER™ has been very beneficial for me to keep tabs on my house and shop’s heating and electrical needs. I currently work for Westinghouse Electrical Company and am in Field Service. This job puts me away from my family and house for extended periods of time which is difficult. I like the fact that I can tell if my heating system is operating correctly. We recently built a house that uses geothermal radiant floor heat and forced air with a super heater for its heating system. It gives me the freedom to know that the system is not running continuous or abnormally based on the conditions present. It is a great tool and I know that I will continue to use it."
"MYMETER™ was very helpful to our family when we moved back to Minnesota from the West Coast after ten years. We were not sure what to budget for energy costs during the winter months and were nervous about how high the bills may be. The use of MYMETER™ helped us get daily reads to see the effects of lowering the indoor temperature and still be comfortable from the outdoor chill. We felt much more in control and were able to teach our kids the importance of responsible energy usage by showing them the graphs and how that related to kWh costs. Thank you for this service!"
"I log on to MYMETER™ several times a week. I noticed a spike in my usage, and discovered a well pump had been running constantly. The problem is being resolved. I would not have known this quite as fast, had it not been for MYMETER™."
"I built a box to go around my horse water tank and insulated it since tank heaters are notorious energy hogs. I didn’t see a huge savings, but I went to MYMETER™ and saw that I had reduced my kilowatt usage and electric bill to the farm this winter compared to last winter with just that one project using scrap lumber. MYMETER™ is a great tool."
"I have been a customer of yours for only a short year and I can't thank you enough for setting up the MYMETER™ program.....there are many stories that I can share......
Story #1 - Our property is a seasonal lake home and since we are not always there, it is nice to have something looking out for us...MYMETER™ did. I turned on one of the heat sources on in November, the electric boiler, and after monitoring the electrically us I noticed how my electric use dramatically dropped. Upon investigating the possible solutions, sure enough, the boiler had issues and had stopped working, thus the electric use greatly declined We check on the cabin every other week and it would have been too long without having heat but we were saved by watching MYMETER™ reading. My family and the water lines greatly appreciate the MYMETER™.
Story #2 - After getting the boiler going again, I wasn't sure what to set the thermostat to, since this was a new purchase for us and really didn't have a clue on the setting, as the boiler isn't the main heat source. But after watching my electrical use, it was getting really high, so we adjusted our thermostats and our use of the boiler became more efficient. Again, thanks to MYMETER™, we were able to not waste electricity and have an electric bill that would have forced me to take out a loan.
Story #3 - Heat related again, as just recently the electrical use again seemed not right. The off peak seemed right, but the other meter, residential use seemed to have dropped. And almost like story #1, our main heat source, the furnace, stopped working. Thankfully the boiler was working, but it was nice once again to watch the meter and see there was a change in my usage, helping me get the furnace fixed and again to reduce any bigger problems."
