My dads been pulling the last of his hairs out over this.
The past two years around this time, the electric bill jumps to about $300 when typically it’s around $100.
Nothing has changed, we haven’t acquired any new appliances ( all kitchen appliances are relatively brand energy efficient appliances ) We have one LCD TV that’s rated at something like $20 annually.
Dad and wife suspect someone is somehow siphoning power.
When the the main breaker is shut off, the meter stops spinning.
We’ve been selectively unplugging drier, washer, fridges, stove etc. Water heater is gas. We have central AC and it hasn’t run much at all as well.
Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this aside from selectively unpluging devices ?
