    Hello,

    You could first investigate on where most enery consumption is done.
    You could take a look at the lighting, that can be made automatic when entering a room and leaving a room.
    Also the heating system can be taken care of.

    I always forget the water heater on. A microcontroller would make a swift job out of it.
