Sense helped me find overactive AC unit

AC was now running 24/7. Even on nights were the outside temperature was at least 10 colder than my thermostat setting. I had an HVAC company come and perform a system maintenance (clean filters, condensers, add refrigerant, etc.). The difference from July 31 (107.7 kWh) to August 1 (77.3 kWh) was dramatic.

In noticed that Sense was no longer showing an AC bubble. The power being used by the AC was now showing up in the Other bubble. After looking at the trends I realized that the AC unit was running 24/7. After having maintenance performed on the system, the AC now cycles on and off again and almost never runs from 1am to 10am. These estimated savings from July to August was $69.
