Everyone across the world does not want to spend more amount on keeping the House cool during the summer season and they want to save their amount rates and do not want to spend on paying the electricity bill so ceiling fans are considered the cheapest option to cool your room during Summer. This article will guide you about the cost to run a ceiling fan, how to Calculate the cost to run a ceiling fan
Cost to run a ceiling fan
- The typical cost to run a ceiling fan of 50 watts is $0.0066 per hour.
- The cost to run a ceiling fan for 24 hours is $0.16.
- The cost to run a ceiling fan for a week is $1.11.
- The cost to run a ceiling fan for a month is $4.75.
The cost to run a ceiling fan depends on the wattage and electricity price of that location which is being explained next.
Calculating the cost to run a ceiling fan:
- For calculating the cost we have to find the running wattage that can be seen on the specification sheet on the fan.
- The second is to know about the electricity cost in that area if the electricity cost is higher then the cost to run a ceiling fan will be high.
How many watts does a ceiling fan use?
The amount of usage of electricity depends Upon only one factor which is the wattage.
Let’s understand by taking an example, to know about the electricity consumed by the ceiling fan then first you have to check the wattage of the ceiling fan and most ceiling fan uses wattage less than 100W. below you can see the wattage used by different types of a ceiling fans:
- Ceiling fan on average uses about 50 watts.
- Box fans on average use about 100 watts.
- Tower fans on average use about 60 watts.
- Table fan on average uses about 40 watts.
There are 3 ways to know about the wattage used by the fan.
- You can check the label on the fan which includes the description of electricity details such as watts, amperage, and voltage.
- You can check the manual where you will find the wattage of the fan among other specifications.
- You can also Google by searching the model of the fan and get the answer about the weightage used by a specific fan.
How much electricity is used by the fan?
Calculate the electricity used by a ceiling fan by using this formula: Fan Electricity Use = Fan Wattage / 1000.
Diving the wattage by 1000 you get the answer in kilowatt-hours per hour. For example, if we want to calculate the electricity used by a 50 watts fan by using the above formula:
Electricity used= 50W/ 1000 =0.05 kWh per hour.
The following tables show the electricity used by different wattages of fans.
|10W||0.01 kWh per hour|
|20W||0.02 kWh per hour|
|30W||0.03 kWh per hour|
|40W||0.04 kWh per hour|
|50W||0.05 kWh per hour|
|60W||0.06 kWh per hour|
|70W||0.07 kWh per hour|
|80W||0.08 kWh per hour|
|90W||0.09 kWh per hour|
|100W||0.1 kWh per hour|
Hence after calculating how many watts and electricity are consumed by a ceiling fan you can easily calculate the cost to run a ceiling fan that is explained below.
How much does it cost to run a ceiling fan?
To calculate the cost to run a ceiling fan use the formula:
Running cost = electricity consumption * electricity price.
For example, on average the electricity cost in the US is around $0.1319 and a fan of 50 watts uses 0.05 kWh of electricity in an hour than the cost to run a ceiling fan is:
Running cost = 0.05 kWh * 0.1319 per kWh = 0.0066 per hour.
So now is it easy to calculate the cost to run a ceiling fan an hour, 24 hours, a week, and a month?
Cost to run a ceiling fan per hour, 24 hours, week, and month.
The following table shows the cost to run a ceiling fan of different wattages:
|Fan Wattage||Cost Per Hour||Cost Per Day||Cost Per Week||Cost Per Month|
|10 Watts||$0.0013 per hour||$0.03 per day||$0.22 per week||$0.95 per month|
|20 Watts||$0.0026 per hour||$0.06 per day||$0.44 per week||$1.90 per month|
|30 Watts||$0.0040 per hour||$0.09 per day||$0.66 per week||$2.85 per month|
|40 Watts||$0.0053 per hour||$0.13 per day||$0.89 per week||$3.80 per month|
|50 Watts||$0.0066 per hour||$0.16 per day||$1.11 per week||$4.75 per month|
|60 Watts||$0.0079 per hour||$0.19 per day||$1.33 per week||$5.70 per month|
|70 Watts||$0.0092 per hour||$0.22 per day||$1.55 per week||$6.65 per month|
