Over active Water heater

I set out to find out if my electric water heater was over active and running alot. But what I found out immediately was my gas furnace was running the geothermal heat pump all the time. So after some learning I’m looking to cut bill from 300 a month to under 100.

Share how you used the Sense app to help. Be specific!:
It showed 4000w for a gas furnace. I knew this to be excessive. So after some discovery I learned my thermostat was shutting out the gas furnace and using the electric heat pump all the time. Now my water tank is running more. But this meter is letting me see whether it's cheaper for gas or electric. Since the heat pump heats the water tank as well it would be very complicated to figure out without sense. It basically does it for you. I'm a nut I cant put it down.
