My regular electric bill last summer with the AC running was $130 for my 1400sqft older house. I installed my wood burning furnace this summer, and started burning full itme all through november. I just got my electric bill, and its still $110. What the heck? The only thing I have running is one PC, one laptop (my machine and my girlfriends laptop), I have a 40 gallon hot water heater (that I just put a new bottom element and thermostat in). I really can't imagine where all of my electric is going to. Theres only two of us, and we don't use electric excessively. Any ideas as to what could have caused this? The blower on my wood furnace is only 2 amp. 2amp x 120volts = 240 watts. Thats roughly the same as a few lightbulbs on. I wouldn't think it would have used that much electric as compared to my AC / Heatpump.
