“What gets measured gets managed” is a quote often attributed to the venerable management expert Peter Drucker.

Variations of the quote abound but it is difficult to trace the quote to a specific book, paper, or speech. As it turns out, an earlier incarnation of this idea predates Drucker.

The lower the ambient temperature the less effective the heat pump water heater will be in generating hot water causing issues in households with more people, more bathrooms, and in colder months if the heat pump water heater is installed in garages or…Continue
All homeowners are energy users. It is anticipated that if every household in America used only one incandescent light bulb, they would still be able to match the energy output of one whole nuclear power plant.
