NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2016) - It's back-to-school time and the annual Lennox Home Energy Report Card Survey found that most American homeowners are looking to move to the head of the class when it comes to Energy Savings 101. Many homeowners still have a lot to learn about keeping costs low and comfort levels high.
The Lennox Home Energy Report Card Survey, commissioned by Lennox Industries, a leading manufacturer of innovative home comfort products, and conducted by GfK Roper, identified that while comfort is key to consumers, saving money trumps all. In fact, the survey found that 26 percent of homeowners would rather walk around in their underwear than spend money to cool down their homes in the summer.
Fifty-one percent of homeowners gave themselves a 'B' grade in energy efficiency, up six percent from 2015, while 26 percent of homeowners gave themselves a 'C' (a five percent decrease from 2015).
Lennox invites homeowners to earn high marks in efficiency by submitting a unique and innovative home energy savings tip, along with a fun photo depicting their suggested tip as part of the "Energy Savings Superstar" contest on Lennox.com, open until August 31, 2016. The grand prize winner will receive a Dave Lennox Signature Collection XC25 air conditioner, the most efficient residential cooling system on the market, and the new iComfort S30 smart thermostat, or up to $10,000 in energy-efficient Lennox heating and air conditioning products, along with other "cool" prizes.
