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|
|Electric Heater Fan||2000W||3000W|
|Fridge / Freezer||150W||400W|
|Hair Blow dryer||2000W||2500W|
|Home Air Conditioner||1000W||1000W|
|Home Internet Router||5W||15W|
|Inverter Air conditioner||1300W||1800W|
|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.
