Question about Hamilton Beach Water Cooler with Storage Cabinet
Electricity is charged by Kilowatts per hour - There is a very easy formula for you to determine how much electricity your unit consumes.
Locate a sticker on your unit, it will usually say something like 120VAC follow by a number with A....... example 120VAC (which means 120Volts alternative current) and 5A (5 amps). Locate those 2 numbers, multiply them together.
Here is the formula: V*A=W (Volts * Amps = Watts)
So example if you have 120V 4A, that makes 480 W !
Sometimes on some units it already says the wattage, expressed in W Example 100 W !
Once you determined the WATTAGE, divide it by 1000, that gives you your KILOWATTS.
So example, unit uses 400 W..... you will do 400 / 1000 = 0.4 KiloWatts / hour
Next, locate your utility bill and see how much they charge per Kw/h. Multiply your unit's Kw/h * hours per day operation * rate = the cost per hour !
0.4 kh/w * 10 hours * 0.07 (7 cents) = 28 cents per day!
