It can be an error on their part. If not, there is a problem with your electrical system
Faulty meter
Meters do break. An electrician can tell you if the meter is the problem and you can use this statement to show to the power company for an adjustment to your bill.
Faulty appliances
Major appliances like a refrigerator or washer use lots of electricity. If something is continually running, this could cause your bill to be unusually large. If you haven’t accidentally left something running all night but you still get increased bills, the appliance could be faulty. You need to find the culprit and have it checked out.
Faulty wiring
Problems with the wires can cause electricity leakage. Damaged wire can make an appliance heat up and use more power. Especially if you live in an older home, have the wires checked. Animals chewing on the wires is a common cause. Faulty wiring must be replaced or repaired immediately because of its potential to cause a fire.
If you are having any problems with the wiring in your home or business, contact us at Electricians Ottawa to schedule an inspection and repairs.
