My 23 year old AC unit failed in July and we replaced it with a new unit that was expected to be more efficient. I had my sense system for a while so I know how much energy my old AC unit used and how much energy I used daily in July. After the new AC unit was installed, my energy usage did not drop at all. Something that was expected as AC units are of course the major electricity users in July in Texas and an AC unit from today should be more efficient than one from 23 years ago.
The AC installer and Trane are trying to figure this out and they were wondering how Sense is able to determine the exact energy usage of the AC unit. It is clear to them how the overall usage is being measured but not how the energy usage of just the AC unit is measured. I think they might not trust the Sense readings. Can you clarify what is measure and how?
