Electric Bill Increase?

Hi everyone, just troubleshooting a 3x spike in our electric bill...bit of a shock (pardon the pun).  We just have the standard Dig Life package, no cameras or docklocks....but our electric bill had a huge jump.  Has anyone else had this happen?  Just wondering if it is the security system or something else going on....

 

Thanks,

Davis

There's nothing about the DL system that would account for any noticeable increase in power consumption.  I saw the same shocking spike in my bill this month too but it was due to the unusually cold temperatures we had on the East Coast.

Where are you located? Here, if the weather is rotten, the electric company will estimate the usage instead of an actual reading, sometimes two months in a row. Then when they do take a reading......LOOK OUT!!

 

If you happen to be in the Boston area with 100 inches of snow the last two-three months, that's a a good bet.

I'm in Seattle....oddly our winter has been really mild, so don't think it is the heating.  But good to hear that the DL system isn't causing others to have larger electric bills.  Ok, will keep sleuthing on what caused the spike

 

Thanks everyone!

I thought that my surge in the electric bill was related to the new security system because i do have 2 cameras, etc. I came to this forum looking for answers also.
