Over the last week I’ve noticed my water heater usage (as reported by Sense) has dropped to nearly none, and “Other” is high when the water heater is on. There is still some usage reported, but it’s definitely not accurate.
Water heater was one of the first devices detected, and was previously very accurate. I don’t know of anything that has changed (electrically) in the house.
Should I delete the device and hope it re-detects? I’m not sure if Sense has lost track of the water heater’s signature, or if something has changed about the water heater. Perhaps an element going bad (using less power), or that the water heater is using more power now for some reason.
(The data dropout was when internet service was out after hurricane Irma, despite not losing power. Thanks Spectrum!)
