The Brand Electronics Digital Power Meter also shows you what various appliances cost to operate so you can make informed decisions on their use.
POWER COST AND POWER SYSTEM LOAD
A Basement Dehumidifier can use 5 to 35 dollars a month based on the humidity set point.
A Refrigerator can use 5 to 25 dollars a month and would vary with condition of door seals, defrost mode setting and temperature setting.
Air purifiers and fans can use 2 to 10 dollars a month - For Example, a Pureflow Air Treatment System uses 2,3,4, or 7 dollars a month to run in speeds 1,2,3, and 4 respectively. Speed 3 gives a good air flow and saves 3 dollars a month over the highest speed.
Running a toaster oven for an hour can use about the same amount of electricity as running a crock pot over night. ( Compare these to the microwave oven )
Waterbed heaters can use over 350 watts per month. You may be able to reduce their monthly operating cost 5 to 10 dollars or more with better insulating and blankets.
Washing machine operating costs will vary with mode settings.
Many items use power when they are plugged in but not in use such as TVs, VCRs, Stereos, Microwave Ovens, battery chargers, Power Converters for computers, cordless phones and answering machines.
