I recently bought a new house and my electrical bills have climbed each month - $250 (Sept/Oct) $279 (Nov), $422 (Dec). It’s winter here in CT and I have oil heat; we were flat out shocked at the last bill as we had made a concerted effort to drive usage down. I suspect a bad device/component somewhere in the home… so I want to track usage.
My problem is that it’s a big house with a bunch of panels. I put together a quick diagram but can also provide photos or descriptions of anything helpful. In a perfect world, I’d like to monitor every breaker in ever box but there are a lot. The main box alone has 23 breakers, the secondary has 14, the tertiary has 8 and the outbuilding/pool have a few each.
How do people with large number of breakers track usage if the IoTaWatt supports 14?
The other thing I’m concerned about is that the house has a 15KVA generator behind the whole thing. Do I just ignore that? Do I care about the 4 DLM modules?
Deeply appreciate anyone’s thoughts/suggestions.
