Electrical Power Consumption Table
Printable PDF Version - CLICK HERE

The figures in this table are approximate.

The actual power consumption of your household appliances may vary significantly from the figures in this chart. Before you do a final load calculation for your household, we strongly recommend checking the tags and owners manuals for your appliances to get precise figures. A clamp-on ammeter will also measure your amperage draw. A digital multi-meter  and clamp-on type ammeters are helpful tools to know where your power is being used. Even if you are not producing your own power, these meters are essential diagnostic tools.

Multiply the hours used on the average day by the wattage listed below. This will give you the watt hours consumed per day. Remember that some items, such as garage door openers, are used only for a fraction of an hour or minute per day. A 300 watt item used for 5 minutes per day will only consume 25 watt hours per day.

Where a range of numbers are given, the lower figure often denotes a technologically newer and more efficient model. Items marked (n/a) would normally be replaced by non-electric equivalents in homes using alternative energy systems.
