The following formula helps to work out the estimated power use, and cost, of any appliances in your home.
watts (of your appliance) x hours used per day ÷ 1000 = the daily kilowatt per hour (kWh) usage
Once you have this information, you can multiply the kWh by the cost of your power (use a per kWh cost that includes electricity authority levies but excludes daily charges).
For example: 1000 watts (average clothes iron) x 0.25 hours per day ÷ 1000 = 0.25 kWh per hour x 27 cents per kWh (theoretical electricity supplier’s price) = 6.75 cents per day.
In effect, your ironing is costing you on average 47.25 cents per week (about a $1.89 per month).
