During the summer and the winter, you may see unexpected and unwelcome increases in your appliance energy costs due to increased costs from use during seasonal highs and lows in temperature. Whether you’re using your refrigerator, electric range or water heater, it is good to be prepared for increased energy costs while using these appliances.
Here are a few interesting facts on the energy costs associated with these appliances:
- Refrigerator: Your refrigerator is a big drain on your energy costs. The fridge can easily run for 10 hours a day, and that can easily add up to approximately $1 a day.
- Electric Range: Your electric range is another big energy drainer. If you typically consume 1,000 watts per hour, you’ll energy costs will run about 10 cents per hour.
- Water Heater: Your water heater can average about 40 cents an hour to run the hot water in the shower or dry a load of laundry. Initially, that doesn’t sound like much, but when you think about all the showers and all of the loads of laundry, the energy costs can quickly add up!
