How Phantom Load is calculated

Loop calculates your phantom load by looking at periods of your day with very low usage and measuring how low the usage is.

These low usage periods can be from quiet points during the day or overnight, depending on how you use energy at home. 

The phantom load calculated in the app is based on the previous 48 hours and is updated once a day. So if you turn an always-on device on or off, you can expect to see your phantom load change in the app within the next 48 hours.
