Analysis is a key component of the Home Energy Information Cycle. Once we understand how to measure our energy consumption we can convert our raw consumption values into BTU units. We then combine them with degree days and living area measurements to create an energy index (EI) for each utility service. We sum the EIs into a home energy index (HEI). This is an important tool we use to measure our progress in conserving energy, protecting the environment and saving money.
