    For savings on heating or cooling, our approach is based on temperature measurements in the household, and we have defined saving factors that estimate the potential savings as a fraction of the observed energy consumption. The approach considers local climate data, to make the saving advices more relevant to the visited households. We have found energy savings of 1000 – 8200 kilowatt-hours per household, depending on the local climate, or 5 – 20 % savings per household. The first 5 % result from inexpensive behaviour related changes, while larger savings result from improvements to the building envelope.
