Determine how much cost is used by the appliances in your home. Use this calculator to find the cost of using most major electric appliances.
Simply enter the amount of electricity the appliance uses (in Watts) and the length of time it is used (in Hours), then instantly see the cost and energy consumption.
• User friendly interface.
• Add multiple appliance with custom setting.
• More than 30 appliance template ready for fast calculation.
• Easy highlight which appliance cost the most.
• Instant calculation with result monthly cost, yearly cost, monthly kWh and yearly kWh.
Electricity Usage Per Month = (Watts / 1000) * Hours/Day * 30 Days = kWh/month
Electricity Usage Per Year = (Watts / 1000) * Hours/Day * 365 Days = kWh/year
Electricity Cost Per Month = (cents/kWh / 100) * 30 Days = $/month
Electricity Cost Per Year = (cents/kWh / 100) * 365 Days = $/year
Tips When Calculating Appliance Running Costs
Appliances such as lights, heaters, pumps, motors, and fans which draw constant power are ideal to use with this appliance cost calculator.
Some appliances can be switched on 24/7 but only draw power for some of this time. For example, a refrigerator's compressor may only draw power for 8 to 12 hours per day. For these appliances you can either make an estimate based on your observations, or use a power meter.
For other appliances, the power usage can vary a lot. For example, a dishwasher may use 2400W when heating, 50W when pumping water, and 5W in standby. Estimating an 'average power' for these appliances can be tricky. Any appliance which goes through a 'cycle' like this is best measured with a power meter.
For monthly cost the number of average days used is 30 days.
The results should be used as indication only and may vary based on age of appliance, the latest technology and other factors.
The overall cost of using each appliance in this calculator is approximate and does not include standby power.
- Energy use for air-conditioners and heaters depends on thermostat setting and thermal performance of the room or house.
- Energy use for dishwashers and washing machines depends on the wash cycle chosen (i.e. how long it goes for) and whether your machine is connected to the hot water tap.
11 Energy saving tips:
1. Use natural light and turn off unnecessary lights. A single south-facing window can illuminate 20 to 100 times its area.
2. Promote airflow through your home and block the afternoon sun during the summer.
3. Unplug unused electronics. Standby power can account for 10% of an average household's annual electricity use.
4. Any appliance that generate heat or cold consume a lot of energy, use wisely.
5. Manage your thermostat. If you have electric heat, lower your thermostat by two degrees to save 5% on your heating bill. Lowering it five degrees could save 10%.
6. For air conditioner, set temperature to 27 degree instead of 17 degree, combine with fan you can get desire result.
7. Wash only when there's a full load, and hang dry your laundry/dish.
8. Buy and use energy efficient appliances. Such as LED light, energy-efficient cooking appliance etc.
9. Insulation your home helps you stay warm in winter and cool in summer.
10. Adjust your day-to-day behaviours.
11. Consider make your house an energy-saving smart home.
