Other Sources of High Usage

Sometimes you’ll find equipment using electricity that you thought was turned off. It could be a faulty motor control on an air conditioner, well pump, or pool pump, a leaky hot water faucet, or lights and equipment simply left on. By comparing your use with that in the Appliance Energy Use Guide tables, you may determine whether that equipment is using an unusually high amount of electricity.

However, if you can’t find the problem, contact your electrician or seek proper advice from your electric cooperative.
