What are some causes of higher-than-normal bills?

If you receive a bill that is higher than normal, the first thing to look for is how many days of service were included in that billing period. Find the average daily cost for service on the lower portion of your bill. Compare that number to previous bills for the past few months.

If it’s significantly different, stop to think if you have added a major appliance or altered your lifestyle in some way that would account for the increased usage.
