Quick question to run by you all.
I have a standard “office style” florescent light in the laundry room.
This is the only florescent light in the house.
It consistently shows about 140 watts of usage since installing sense about a week ago.
Google-ing is bringing up that this type of fixture usually has a ballast rated around 40-ish watts (unsure of actual model)
Does this seem right?
All other devices in the house are showing very close to what they are rated for on the sense meter, expect this light.
Do you think maybe it’s failing? Do ballasts throw sense off in some kind of way?
I probably will replace this light with an LED type fixture, but not knowing why it is appearing to draw so much power (in my already power hungry house) is baffling to me.
If you guys think it (the light) may be failing, that will motivate me to change it faster, but eventually it will get changed out anyway.
I did pop my head above the ceiling quick and it does not have an “out” so I know no other devices/lights are turning on that I may be unaware of (moved into this house in August)
