Estimating What Appliances Use What.


Here are some samples to give you an idea on what appliances use what. In many country's it is manditory for manufacturers to display what each appliance uses so have a look right the way around your appliance it probably will have a sticker on it somewhere with it's usage.
To work out your total usage work out how long you use each appliance each day (in hours) and times it by the Watts to give you your total watt hours per day. The average house uses about 1,000Watts a day.
