Gas & Elec usage dilema
If the increase in your utility bills has been more and more each year, this could be the reason. But if you don't use electricity to heat your house, you should have seen an increase only in your gas bills. Have you changed your habits, or made renovations, like adding canned lights (50Watts each)? Hope this helps, and Happy Holidays! Wolley
And we have been confused about the electric bill component too. Yes, we do have can lights both inside(12) and outside(7), most of which have been added in the last 15 years. We did ask the electrician about that and our ceiling fans(5) and he said that things like that would not account for such a huge difference. He said the bill for his entire office and warehouse is less than half our bill which he said was certainly not right. Our combined gas and electric bill was $305 last month vs. $150's for our neighbor. These homes are only 2200 sq feet. My son, who lives about 20 miles away in a 5000 sq ft house has bills lower than ours.
Thanks for your input. Keep thinking.
the culpret was the undergound cable coming into the house the transformer was hit by lightining all those years ago and burnt the neutral wire right off aslo melted the 120 line and 220 line together causing a short in the system. the day before it was changed i was using 175kw /day
the day it was changed i used 35kw/day and haven,t changed since
have them come out and check these connectors
told them to use an ommeter and check for continuity between the lines WITH THE SUPPLY POWER TO THE HOUSE SHUT OFF
don,t expect any refund though because they agree that the bills have dropped by 80% but don,t agree that it would effect the usage
and don,t agree with there linemaen either that say the same thing as me
good luck let me know what happens
it may also cause the heater to go through more gas by running longer because the motor is running on low voltage
