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.

## 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:

### 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.

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?
