Through a joint partnership between the United Way, the Engineering Department at a local university, and our natural gas provider, we had an energy audit done at the clinic recently.
Before I share the results, let me provide some demographics on the staff (most of whom are part-time):
1 female in her 60's
5 females in their 50's
1 female in her 40's
1 female in her 30's
2 males in their 30's
The report said we use only about 60% of the natural gas consumed annually by the average building our size.
Apparently, if you stuff enough menopausal women into one small building, you can save big on heating costs.
