Do people use more energy in the winter or the summer?

    Well there is not a simple answer to this question because it will depend very much on where one lives. First of all one must take into account the climate. In tropical and sub-tropical zones energy use will go up in the summer due to the use of air conditioning. Conversely if one lives in northern latitudes energy use will generally go up during the winter due to the use of heating units. Another thing to look at is the type of energy being used, i.e. electric (usually used for air condition) or gas (often used for heating, especially in older building). As far as conservation the ideal temperatures to set your thermastat in either case would be no more then 80 degrees in winter and no less then 70 in the summer.
