** Savings are estimates based on a typical home of 1,850 sq. ft. with an annual kWh usage of 15,000, calculated at $.12/kWh and assumes all components of the kit will be installed and operate over their useful life. They are based upon engineering assumptions and approximations from DEF Base Study, DOE and ENERGY STAR®. Actual savings may differ from those estimated due to variations in weather, individual energy use habits, occupancy and home characteristics.
