I am. We'll be able to compare. I'll try to keep track of temperatures outside as well.

Your thing says 82kwh. That must've been from earlier this month?

How big is the area your mini split is heating? I've used the amount of energy you used all month on 1 week for my two units.

So talking to my uncle, who just had a 12000btu Panasonic mini split put in because his chimney needs to be fully replaced. He says after using his heat pump since Monday, he already loves it way more than his oil furnace and as long as he has a good experience over the winter he will be installing another one or possibly replacing the oil furnace with a whole house unit.

Reset my meter for the month at noon. Reading was 217 Kwatts for 30 days.

Because I didn't want to wait til mid-night. It's just a reference point, today at noon it will be 1 day. I expect an average of 20 Kwatts per day in December as oppose to 7 in November.

Hold the button until it goes to zero. Do not release when it says clear.
