I was anticipating that it was going to go down at least a bit because I returned the cable box. Instead it doubled. I did need to start using some heat and the furnace uses some electricity to start. But still, that was only for a week or so of the month. And I was actually home much less in Sept. so I should be using less lights, etc.
The only other thing I can think of was that I switched to Vonage phone and so needed to plug in their little box. Could it really be using that much electricity??
The bill went from $39 to $85. That is crazy!
