Water heater. anything frost free, a bad thermstat if you have electric heat one possible thing to check is the service wire connection coming into the house at the meter base, corrosion on the contact lugs can cause excessive resistance/power usage.

Why the semiconductor is used in electronic devices?

Electronic devices works with electric current (AC / DC), some conductors are used to control current by amplifying, change in voltage etc.All eletronic devices have its own power supply systemthat regulates electric current. These power system uses transfermer with diode and capacitors in old days but now transiter is used along with other as in smps. Main function of typical power suply system is to give electrical devices constant voltage/ current and save from sudden change in voltage. Sometime different part of electronic device requries different voltage electric current, which we have with power supply.Other systems of electronic devices are just controling/modifying current, frequency of electrical current, amplification etc. all this is done easily by semiconductor like transitor, diode etc.
