This chapter evaluates the energy consumption in rental housing units, comparing patterns of appliance ownerships between homeowners and renters using data from the Residential Energy Consumption Survey. It first provides background information about energy efficiency standards in the United States, and then describes the estimating equation used to test for variations in appliance ownership patterns between homeowners and renters. The results are then presented and discussed. The chapter concludes with suggestions for future research.

Keywords:   energy consumption, rental housing units, appliance ownerships, homeowners, renters, Residential Energy Consumption, energy efficiency standards
