The kitchen is home to the biggest energy vampires and has the biggest impact on your electricity bill. Many times we don’t spend much time doing the “math” but if we do, the results will be surprising! To help you reduce your electricity bill, we will tell you which equipment uses the most light in your kitchen and approximately how much this will cost you at the end of the year. This information can even help you make some choices when saving. However, there is one thing that you really need to take into account. There is an appliance in the kitchen that is the most wasteful.
Electricity bill: this appliance in the kitchen is the most expensive!
There is a lot of equipment that we use in our kitchen and that represents a big hole in the electricity bill if we calculate it for a year. As our goal is to help, we will present you in an order ranging from the most expensive to those that have the least impact on your electricity bill.
Guess what the big energy vampire in your kitchen is?
If you said dishwasher, you’re correct. In fact, it is the equipment that uses the most and people use it for around 1000 hours throughout the year. Now this costs around 260 Euros per year. In other words, it is a substantial amount on the electricity bill.
However, the freezer comes in second place. They operate for 8760 hours and have an electricity bill cost of 257 Euros. It is also a very significant value.
On the other hand, the dryer is also a widely used appliance. We typically use about 270 hours per year. This represents an impact of 134 Euros on the annual bill.
The oven also has a significant impact on the bills, but perhaps not as much as we might think. Also because we use it less often. Therefore, usage is estimated to be around 182 hours, which amounts to around 77 Euros on the monthly bill.
Next we have the refrigerator. It works like the freezer for 8760 hours and has an impact on the annual value of 68 Euros.
Then we have the Air Fryer. We normally use it for 182 hours and it has an impact on the annual electricity bill of 53 Euros.
The microwave is also a widely used piece of equipment in the kitchen. It normally operates for 91 hours throughout the year and has an impact of 20 euros on the electricity bill.
Another interesting aspect is to check the cost of our coffee machine over an entire year. Now if we consider that it works for 365 days over 60 hours, it costs around 16 Euros per year.
