If I have multiple RMS voltage values over a day's time and I want to find the average - should I use RMS or arithmetic mean?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I think I would use arithmetic mean because RMS is just to account for the +/- direction of voltage, but I'm looking for confirmation.

Thanks!
