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.

Hint: Use the Search tool on your web browser to find the name of the appliance. As some appliances have various names, this could help find it on the [Other Name(s)] column.

Washing Machine 500W 500W 1W Clothes Washer In the EU, power consumption of Washing Machines is typically given in the form of Annual Power Consumption. This is calculated based on 220 standard washing cycles, made up as follows: 60°C full load (3x), 60°C half load (2x), 40°C half load (2x) for 220 washing cycles.

An important point is also to bear 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 2KW * 0.0833hours = 0.1666kWh. So using the blanket costs roughly 2.5 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.

very useful - helpful, we must know the power consumption each appliance

Very helpful. Thanks for compiling. Would be great to have separate numbers for Central Air Conditioning - heating only and cooling only for lowest efficiency units.

I like it, it helped with my school thing.
But needs more types of lights, especially fluorescent tube lights.

In case you're wondering, CHICKEN isn't my real name...

Where is the list? I even put in appliance name and nothing???

For those wondering how to use all this - watts (power) is voltage x amperage. To make an easy example, a 100W globe will draw 1 amp at 100 volts.. 2 amps at 50 volts. While this probably doesn't matter to you it will help understand that it doesn't matter if it's referring to 110v or 220/240v countries. The wattage stays the same.

The power company will charge you per kilowatt hour (kWh) . That is the power used for a period time. So the 100W rated globe above needs to run for 10 hours to use 1kw of power. If the company charges 20 cents per kWh then that 100w globe costs you 20 cents to run for 10 hours, 10 cents for 5 hours etc. But a 1000W globe would cost 20 cents for 1 hour (as it draws 10x the power), 10 cents for half and hour etc.

What is an American Style fridge? Chart says it operates on 40W, yet my Chromebook uses 45W.

These are not all perfectly accurate. But i suppose its only a simple guide.

Hi, it lists the KW, so the rate at which power is consumed. KWh com in to play when you factor in how the the appliance is used for, but that is outside the scope of this data.

is this per hour for each appliance?
