Have you noticed a significant spike in your utility bill lately? You may be tempted to write this off as the result of spending more time at home than you typically have been. But, could it be that there is a rogue appliance in your home that is using more energy than it should be? This kind of unusual power consumption can happen more often than you think, and typically can be repaired by an appliance’s manufacturer. However, the first step toward fixing the problem is identifying it in the first place.
Using a thermal imaging camera, a professional home inspector can visibly detect which circuit is running the hottest, which may indicate abnormal power consumption. From there, it’s a simple process of elimination. After turning off all other circuits at the circuit breaker, it’s simply a matter of figuring out which appliances are still powered on. One of those appliances may be causing the problem.
