great article, but there are more severe problems you can find with a wattmeter (not voltmeter as stated in the article)
and some times there are simple means to solve them
adding extra insulation to a boiler can reduce power-consumption significantly
True, and use night-store rates so that you're not heating up water during the day when the peak power prices are high; that combined with a good insulation around the broiler has helped me save a few dollars each month.
