YKYAEM when you get a call from an Energy Coach to explore and inform me about ways to save energy at home - and the call lasts half an hour longer than planned and it is not clear who learned the most

Part of the deal was a box with a LED lamp, isolation foil, weather seals and a shower-timer hour glass, all free. So I put up with the call.

I now know that we use way less electricity and gas than average, even more so considering the size, type and build year of our house.
We can improve on central heating and by addressing the few single-layer windows left. It wasn't a complete waste of time
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
