We just got one in the email from the Sensi company. My inlaws did too.

Our 20 yr old furnace ran 225 hours.

My inlaws 95% unit ran 130 hours. (smaller house and no dog to let in and out)

This was in southeast Michigan. Temps averaged low 30s in November.

Wish I knew where that stood locally.

I don’t have a wifi thermostat but do have a smart electric meter. My electric company sends me a report on air conditioning usage, and I’m not sure how they know which circuits the power is going to after it passes thru their smart meter. I have 2 ACs (ie it takes more than 5 tons of cooling) which makes it tougher.

Yes, got it first time this month. Only able to see in email, can't access real time in app or online.

Looks like three heat units ran 28, 71 and 32 hours, a/c 2, 3 and 26. Who can pick out the bedroom unit for a menopausal woman?

Yes.

It's Sensi trying to sell their new monthly service.

Buncha bullshit.

I have a Honeywell thermostat and get one each month that compares usage to the same month last year.

I have several(4) wifi honeywells. One is fairly sophisticated but none give me a report on runtime.

How do you get a report on run time?

Nest sends a monthly report of how many hours you've run, how many the month before average for the area of nesters as they refer to customers.

It really would be nice if you could pull down historical data in a spreadsheet, so you could compare hours used over time vs having to log it yourself.
