    Same. I couldn’t get a plumber so I shut off the water and capped it watching YouTube videos. Props to me, my wife said I couldn’t do it.

    While I wouldn't word it in a way to pool-splain the professional, I will say that I never would have known that I could do anything without your posts. I've spoken to a lot of folks around me and none had done anything after the power died.

    The colder weather alone and amount of energy consumed alone could probably make up that difference. How many more kW did you use than previous month?

    That does not seem that bad.

    We posted our electric bills a couple years ago that showed kW usage and mine was astronomical. Kind of scared to see how much I used this past month. I do levelized billing

    I used just under 1,000 kwh, 900sqft place. I messed up on my most recent renewal and got a bad rate for under 1,000. I would have paid less if I exceeded 1,000 due to credits I think. Normally I’m at like 600 kWh.
