List of the Power Consumption of Typical Household Appliances
Turn that TV off if you're not watching it! It's wasting electrically!
How much electricity is it really wasting?, and would it not be better to switch off the 4 lights in the room?
The best way to compare the cost of running different appliances is to look at their power consumption, which is measure of how much power they use in Watts. The following list points out typical values for the wattage of some devices you would find in your home so that you can compare them.
|100W light bulb||100W||100W|
|25" colour TV||150W||150W|
|3" belt sander||1000W||1000W|
|60W light bulb||60W||60W|
|9" disc sander||1200W||1200W|
|Fridge / Freezer||500W||500W|
|Hair Blow dryer||1000W||1000W|
|Home Air Conditioner||1000W||1000W|
|Submersible Water Pump||400W||400W|
|TV (19" colour)||70W||100W|
An important point is also to bare in mind the length of time for which the device will be used. For example an electric blanket may be used for 2 hours, but a hair drier for 5 minutes. Therefore the blanket uses 200W * 2 hours = 0.4kWh. The hair drier uses 1KW * 0.0833hours = 0.08333 kWh. So using the blanket costs roughly 5 times as much as the hair drier.
All values reported here are estimates, you should check the appliance labels or literature to find out the correct power consumption.

We know from this usage of (also waste) of power is so much. Plese reduced usage of power.

Marvellously helpful. My crazy inlaws refused to let us get a desk fan in 40 degree heat (they don't have air con) because they thought it would use too much electricity. I used this list to explain to them that it would use 1/6 of what their three massive tvs use and 1/20 of what their 3 fridge freezers use (on lowest temp because the house is so hot!!) So now we have a fan. So thank you very, very much.
