My energy consumption increased from 6.7kw per day in December to 37.7 this month. The only thing that is different is I switched out my Direct TV box for Dish network. Nothing else has changed. To put this in perspective, the highest my usage has ever been in this 2 year old house is 27 kw per day in the hottest Louisiana month. The energy company said the meter reading is accurate after a reread. I turned off the main and the meter stopped. Tested each circuit and some showed energy use even though all lights were off and nothing was plugged in, especially GFCI. DIY electric is absolutely outside of my abilities; is the next step to call an electrician to help troubleshoot? I'm a noob so thank you for your help!
