I got my energy bill today, and again, I find the actual khw usage to be questionable. For the last two months, apparently my total use in kWh has been steadily increasing, but we have not changed our habits/touched the thermostat since November, when our monthly kWh usage was MUCH lower. I called the power company, and they told me they were getting normal readings. This leads me to believe that either: 1) The power company is full of it or 2) A certain electric product in my apartment is drawing much more power than is necessary. Is there a certain way I can go about finding out what it is that is using so much power? I plan on completely unplugging it (it's my DVR/Digital Cable receiver) from the wall when not using it, but is there a (cheap) way I can monitor the power usage from that one particular thing?
