Knowing and using the appliance’s electrical components is very beneficial for a person as in case they reduce the electrical consumption in a way that there is not much increase in the electricity bill to run those appliances. There are many common appliances that are used in every house and people of underwear about the wattage consumed by the appliance such as:
A fan is an appliance that is used in almost every house but none of them would be aware of the wattage consumed by the fan. as the voltage consumption varies according to the type of the fan.
For example, the voltage consumed by a table fan on average is 42.5 watts, a Tower fan ranges from 6 Watts to 110 watts, a ceiling fan consumes the wattage upto 31.1 watts, the box fan consumes up to 73 watts and a bathroom exhaust fan has different wattage consumption. So knowing the wattage and then using the fan or using appliances that are cost-effective will be beneficial.
A refrigerator is used throughout the year and consumes a lot of wattage due to which the cost to run it is also very high.

- So you should buy after comparing the air conditioner whether window AC vs portable AC, wall AC vs window by checking the difference in efficiency, cooking, and noise difference.
- The RV AC has a wattage consumption of about 1500 watts on average.
The cost to run the appliances depends on mainly three electrical components: the wattage, amperage, and voltage of the appliances. So you should use or buy the appliances by checking the specifications which are visible on the appliances themselves such as treadmill, fan, coffee maker, TV, air conditioner, toaster, heater, dryer, microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer, Vitamix, etc. So buy or use the appliances in a way that does cost more and follow the tips to reduce the wattage consumption of the appliances.

So you should use them according to their wattage consumption.
Outlets, and protectors:
The amount of wattage handled by the outlets depends on the breaker size and voltage and you can easily find the wattage of the outlets by using the formula such as:
Wattage = amps × voltage.
There are two types of protectors that are used with the circuit such as the surge protector and power strip but there are a lot of differences and advantages. You should use the protector in order to protect the appliances from overloading.
A 1 megawatt of power on average is able to power 814 US homes for 1 hour. 1 megawatt means that the power is 1000 times larger than a kilowatt.
