Formula for Estimating Energy Consumption This formula can estimate an appliance's energy use: (Wattage Formula for Estimating Energy Consumption This formula can estimate an appliance's energy use: (Wattage × Hours Used Per Day ÷ 1000 = Daily Kilowatt-hour (k. Wh) consumption (1 kilowatt (k. W) = 1, 000 Watts)

Typical Wattages of Various Appliances Aquarium = 50– 1210 Watts Clock radio = 10 Typical Wattages of Various Appliances Aquarium = 50– 1210 Watts Clock radio = 10 Coffee maker = 900– 1200 Clothes washer = 350– 500 Clothes dryer = 1800– 5000 Dishwasher = 1200– 2400 Dehumidifier = 785 Fans Ceiling = 65– 175 Window = 55– 250 Furnace = 750 Whole house = 240– 750 Hair dryer = 1200– 1875

Laundry Wash with cold water whenever possible. Wash and dry full loads to maximize Laundry Wash with cold water whenever possible. Wash and dry full loads to maximize efficiency. Don't overload dryers. Use suds savers and front-loading washers for maximum efficiency. Always adjust the water level to fit load size. Clean the lint filter after each dryer cycle. Regularly clean dryer vent.

Cooking Use your oven instead of your cook top to cut cooking costs. Don't Cooking Use your oven instead of your cook top to cut cooking costs. Don't peek. Cooking temperatures can drop 50º every time the oven door is opened. Use the oven's self-cleaning cycle only for big cleaning jobs. Use small appliances such as crock pots, electric frying pans, toaster ovens, and microwave ovens

Lighting Fluorescent bulbs use 1/4 the energy of traditional incandescent bulbs and last six Lighting Fluorescent bulbs use 1/4 the energy of traditional incandescent bulbs and last six times longer. Putting a lamp in the corner gives off more light than the center of a room.
