How to calculate cost per hour
Ceiling fan.................................................................. 1 cent per hour
To calculate the approximate cost to operate a specific appliance
or other item not included on this brochure, locate the wattage
listed on the appliance (you may need to reference the owner’s
manual) and divide it by 1,000 to get the kWh. Once you have the
kWh, multiply by 10 cents per kWh to get an approximate cost to
operate the appliance for one hour.
Box fan ..................................................................... 2 cents per hour
For example: Consider an appliance that uses 600 watts.
Hand held blow dryer .....................................12 – 15 cents per hour
Divide 600 watts by 1,000 = .6 kWh.

AIR CONDITIONING
The efficiency of your air conditioning system can have a big impact on
your electric bill. Air conditioners are rated according to their seasonal
energy efficiency ratio (SEER). SEER indicates the relative amount of
energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. A higher SEER
equals higher efficiency. Since 2006, new air conditioning systems
range from 13 to 20 SEER. The costs below are based on an air
conditioning system with a SEER between 9 and 15.
