I would still like the OP to specifically identify how he determined that his unit was consuming 4 kilowatts per hour. What type of meter do you have (SMART or old type with multiple dials to be read) and how long was the reading to determine it was consuming those 4 kilowatts.

If OP has the newer SMART meter he may be misinterpreting one of the readings. My SMART meter has a "peak demand reading (kW) since last reset". Could that be what he is reading?
