Electricity Bill Consumption Calculator
Electricity bill calculator has been useful in determining consumption of electric energy. The text fields are arranged in a logical order to enhance the flow of calculations. The electricity bills are calculated differently depending on your country. The electricity bill calculator gives you the option of selecting your country.
The featured countries include Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Philippine, Singapore, UK and the United States. If you cannot find your country among the listed, you will select the ‘others' option.
The second cell allows you to choose the typical appliance. It can be anything that is powered by electric energy such as a heater, refrigerator, toaster oven and many others. You can then enter the rate of power consumption depending on the Watts (W) or Kilowatts (kW). The power consumption will also rely on the duration you take while using the electric appliance.
The text field will require you to enter the number of hours you use per day. The refrigerator may take longer hours since the electricity is always running to preserve the food. Other appliances may be utilized for a short duration depending on an individual's need. The type of currency is useful in calculating the Kilowatts per hour.
For example, if you are in the United States, and your typical appliance is the Clothes dryer, your power consumption will be 3000 watts (W). You will be required to enter the number of hours you spend while using the clothes dryer in a day.
In case the clothes dryer uses four hours in a day, then the conversion will be done at the cost of 12 cents Kilowatt per hour. Your electricity cost will be $1.44 per day, $43.83 per month and $525.96 per year.
There are two types of calculation performed by the electricity bill calculator;
Calculation of the power consumptionE(kWh/day) = P (W) x t(h/day) / 1000 (W/kW), which means that the energy in Kilowatts per hour, is estimated by the power in watts multiplied by usage hours per day which is divided by 1000 watts per Kilowatt.
Calculation of electricity costCost ($/day) = E (kWh/day) x Cost (cent/kWh) / 100(cent/$). It means that your electricity cost in a day is calculated by the energy consumption in Kilowatts per hour, multiplied by the cost of one kWh in cents/kWh and then divided by a hundred cents per dollar.
The calculator makes it simple, and you are capable of determining how much to spend on your bills every month or per annum.
