George Foreman Energy Efficiency

I have 2 Geroge Foreman Grills: the GR315B and the GR7BW. Are either of these grills energy efficient? I ask because there has been a noticeable increase in my eletric bill since I started using them.
I use the GR315B most often.
Thanks

    Thank you for this excellent informative response; and for the practical suggestions. I'm clear that it is not the grill that has increased my electricity bill. Will look for other causes.

    Best Regards,

Well, a good rule of thumb is if you use Electricity to change the temperature of something, it will use more electricity than say a light bulb, monitor, tv, radio etc.
Some Energy Hogging items are things like:
Microwave oven converts electricity to Heat things.
A/C unit, converts electricity to Cool
Toaster, hair dryer, Electric grills, electric heaters, etc.

The easiest thing to do, is to look at the bottom of the Grill, and look for the Watt usage. IM pretty sure it will be close if not over 1000 Watts. I have a small GF grill and it is rated at 750 Watts.
To give you an idea of how much electricity it is using, thing of a 100 watt light bulb and compare the grill to that.
If the grill uses 1000W, then it is like leaving on TEN 100 Watt light bulbs for the length of time you leave the grill plugged in.
The key thing would be to make sure you unplug the unit as soon as you are done. Leaving it plugged in and running for say another 5-10 minutes while you take your food to the table, will use that much more electricity.

I hope this helps.
If I have answered your question, please remember to leave a feedback and a rating for me.
Thanks and good luck.

Air Conditioner SEER Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio


Energy consumption for home air conditioning accounts for almost 5% of all the electricity produced in the USA. Energy Policy Act mandates minimum energy efficiency standards for commercial buildings, using research and standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers. Energy Star qualified central air conditioners have a higher seasonal efficiency rating (SEER) than standard models, which makes them about 14% more efficient than standard models. Energy efficiency specialists with certified training on retrofits and energy savings on both residential and light commercial units may enable you to save up to 50 percent on your air conditioning bills with the use of a high efficiency energy system. Substantial energy savings can be obtained from more efficient systems.

SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations.

The SEER rating is the Btu of cooling output during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. SEER is related to the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER), which is the ratio of output cooling in Btu/Hr and the input power in watts W at a given operating point and also to the coefficient of performance (COP) commonly used in thermodynamics. SEER rating more accurately reflects overall system efficiency on a seasonal basis and EER reflects the system’s energy efficiency at peak day operations. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency of your unit. Therefore you will realize greater energy savings. The higher efficiency your product, the lower your long-term energy costs will be. Both central AC and air source heat pumps are rated according to seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER).

Before you consider upgrading your cooling equipment, the cheapest way to save money and energy from cooling is to reduce the need for mechanical air conditioning in the first place. Ask your contractor about a variable speed air handler, which will improve comfort and efficiency and allow continuous air filtering at minimum energy cost. Also, because ducts are often responsible for a lot of wasted energy, make sure you hire a contractor who knows about high-efficiency installations. If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an Energy Star qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30 percent.
