I just got te app to check why my energy bill is so high and I see a spike in energy usage at midnight everyday. Can someone please explain what’s going on as apart from my fridge, nothing else is switched on around that time?
If you're seeing power being used habitually very late at night or very early in the morning, then its very likely that the appliance responsible is your hot water system. If you have a storage hot water system (which looks like a large tank), then this essentially operates in a similar way to a kettle. The water will heat up overnight at the same time to ensure that hot water is readily available to you throughout the day.
If I’ve helped in anyway, please mark my post as SOLVED!
