Really weird non-washer washer detected

Hey all,

Sense discovered a washer but it is definitely not the washer. I’m confused as to what it can be as it is almost a consistent spike every few minutes.

Sense detects it as constantly turning on and off but I have no idea what it is. I was thinking maybe refrigerator or aquarium pumps/filter?

Thank you!!!

It definitely was the Keurig. After unplugging it, it went offline. Amazing how much power it uses. It goes on and off 40x a day, funny how Sense thought it was a washer.

Hmmm…on my Keurig we just hit the off button until we are ready to use it again. The inconvenience of waiting a minute for it to heat up is worth not having it maintain heat 24x7.

I’m a pretentious snob with coffee so I either brew with a chemex, aeropress, or moka, but I’m curious…

Can someone who leaves their Keurig on all the time (maybe you @andy?) give me the total watts used over the course of a day? I’m wondering how much it’d cost to run like that in my home with my $.25 rate. Occasionally, my wife will get lazy and not want to brew on the low-tech toys, so I need some ammo to convince her how much the convenience will cost. :smile:

Mine uses 0.1 kWh a day or 2 cents a day on my $.13 rate.

You can go into settings and set how long the machine will stay on before it turns itself off. My wife never turns it off, ever…

Mine peaked at around 5kWh a day when I had it on on all day. At 26c per kWh it comes out to a dollar a day. Not really worth it.
