@gohm • 18 Mar, 2009 Um, that depends on the model and the manufacture(volt & amp). Most items have either a nameplate or nema info to tell you this. Also consult your o & m.

Hi,

The power consumption depends on the capacity and the time period an equipment is used for. You pay electricity bill for the units consumed in a period - say a month.

Now what is 1 Unit - It is equal to 1 KWh or 1000 watts on power for an hour.

The equipments you mentioned above will consume different amount of power, but will all depend on its rating (will be on its no. plate)

Let me give you some figures for each

1. Ceiling Fan - 60 Watts - 90 Watts each

2. Iron Box - 800 Watts - 1500 Watts - check the rating with yours

3. Refrigerator - 750 Watts - 1200 Watts - check the rating with yours. Further the refrigerator consumes less when its compressor is OFF.

4. Washing M/C - 350 - 500 Watts

5. Tube light - 40 Watts.

Now calculate your own load, total individual time for they are used daily. Calculate the approx units consumed in a month. 😎

Post your findings with any other query ... if any ;-)
