Reasons for a High Bill
There are three main reasons why your bill might be higher than you expect it to be.
Changes in the weather during the winter and summer months can have a tremendous impact on your electric bill. You can also learn more online about How Weather Affects Your Bill.
Problems with your central heat and air system can make your bill go up. Problems with your water heater, such as water leaks, or the element burning out can cause the water heater to have to work more often. Other problems such as faulty or disconnected ductwork can lead to heat loss, resulting in higher bills.
Changes in your lifestyle can increase the amount of your electric bill. The addition of energy consuming items, the addition of people to your home, or the addition of new floor space can cause your bill to go up.
