Yes and yes and yes
You're obviously great at assuming things. The whole point is no bill from a utility.

Yeah. I dont use the stove, a 6 slice convection toaster oven cooks everything fine. The layout of my place is rectangular (660ish sq ft) so one 13w CFL bulb on a floor lamp is enough light for the entire living room/kitchen/hallway/den. Load of laundry once a week on a weekend, no need to run the heatpump yet since it never dips below 22c in here. I suppose turning off the power bar for the tv/receiver/xbox/n64/android box every night helps for phantom load, not sure if it really makes a difference though.CoffeeGod wrote: ↑Dec 5th, 2015 2:37 pmDo you live in a condo by yourself only? That's impressive how little electricity you use.
I'm kind of addicted to seeing now low I can go for usage esp with the comparison tool on powerstream.. there's 2 households using less electricity than me in my postal code....I think they don't use the dryer probably or have gas stove
Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Most hydro utility companies in the GTA have a way to lookup hourly or daily usage online. It's an easier way to monitor changes you make each day to conserve.

Sep 11 - Oct 9 $98 19 kWh/day vs 20 last year
Oct 10 - Nov 10 $96 18 kWh/day vs 18 last year
So charged twice as much in Aug 12 - Sep 10 time period. Yes, possibly more ac use during that time but were also away for one week.
Aug 12 - Sep 10 $196 40 kWh/day vs 23 last year

If your water-heater is electric, it'll definitely use a huge amount of electricity, but gas-based water heaters shouldn't use much.

Careful with the tank temp, do not go under 50-55C due to legionella, maybe try to insulate better?
