How much energy do you use every day? The easiest answer to this question you will find at the bottom of your electrical bill or by contacting your power company. A typical American household consumes about 9500kwh of power per year that means 26 000w a day or 1100w/hour

If you want to calculate the usage and costs for a new home or summer vacation house you would have to make an assumption based on the electricity usage for the appliance that you are planning to use.

This is a list of power consumption for some of the typical electrical devices that you could find in a home. The wattage that are stated for them are approximate and can vary depending on either model and brand or both. The power usage is stated in wattage meaning that the appliance will consume the stated amount of power if left running for a full hour.

One has to keep in mind that some of the devices on this list will only be used during a very short time and therefore not consume that much electricity even if the hourly wattage is high. An example of such an home appliance can be the microwave often used only a couple of minutes at a time to quickly heat up food and beverages. This would mean that even if the stated 700w is quite a large number you would only be using 5% of that when heating up your dinner for 3 minutes. The total amount of used wattage for the microwave resulting in a low 35w

Another thing is the refrigerator the wattage stated here is the amount of power it draws when running at maximum power. Both refrigerator and fridge will actually automatically try to conserve power by turning itself on and off depending on the interior temperature. That is why, to get an accurate wattage, divide the hours its used by 3. For example if your refrigerator is marked with 300w the actual used up power would be 300/3=100w per hour.

The lighting is not even on the power consumption appliances chart because i think that everyone understands that a 100w lightbulb consumes exactly 100w and a 12w fluorescent tube consumes 12w and so on. If you would like to know more on what light to use when and wattage conversation rates for different types of light bulbs we have a whole article about that.
