## Eco-friendly Lifestyle

Getting power out of resources is necessary for our way of life. Thus, using less to do more is a solution to the problem of waste. Therefore, a principle. Given, we believe in getting better. Then, improving is natural, organic.

Less resources in. More heat and light out. But, it is more complicated than that. In any event, various sources have different benefits and drawbacks. Mostly, coal, oil, and gas. At the very least, particles are harmful to breathe. At most, a source of climate change.

Releasing less carbon to meet our needs is an overall goal of the equation. First, need less is a way. Next, get more out of it. Also, use another source. To understand, we must rate use.

## Compare Electricity Use

At first thought, ratings must be science. Kind of, to a degree. First, oil, gas, and coal go into our grid. Next, electricity comes out. Thus, savings on both ends are rated scientifically.

But, ratings come from consumers, manufacturers, and government. Consumers have the grid. Manufacturers market products. Government regulates.

Power is a public utility. Hence, ratios are used to compare consumption. That way, we know how much we are using. There is a formula. However, that is for us coming from the grid.

For example, we use oil for gas in cars. Plus, heat in homes. Not really, on grid. First, oil is refined. Then, given an octane rating. And so, combustion inside engine gets us going. Higher ratings get better mileage. Less resources more output.

## Calculate Home Appliance Energy Formulas

Then, less is more. As a result, we measure. And so, rating is done by kilowatt hours. Given, a formula with variable inputs. We get an idea of our appliance usage so we can live sustainably.

After, public utilities give us periodic reports on our use. In addition, appliances display usage information. Therefore, two basic uses we need to know. Consequently, a few different formulae. Plus, some calculations.

Then, appliances can be measured. And so, we can reduce input. A couple of ways to figure that out. After that, we have a feel for balancing use based on our own lifestyle. There are many ways to calculate your home’s monthly energy usage.

## Home Kilowatt Hour Calculate Home Appliance Energy

kWh = Kilowatt hours

1 kWh = 1000 watts

kWh x Price Per kWh = Total Bill

## Watts Appliance Kilowatt Hour Formula Calculation

Watts x Hours Per Day = Watt Hours Per Day

Watt Hours Per Day / 1000 Kilowatts

First, find watts on label. Cheque bottom and back.

Next, Multiply watts by hours of use each day.

Then, Divide by 1000.

Finally, use daily usage to estimate over time. And so, multiply by a number of days. For example, 30 is a month.

## Voltage Amps Kilowatt Hour Formula

Home items don’t always display watts used. In this case, voltage and amps calculate them. Voltage is tricky. First, 120 watts voltage is standard in USA. Next, some stuff requires more.

First, Amps x Volts = Watts

Second, Watts x Hours Per Day = Watts Per Day

Last, Multiply Watts Per Day times a period of days.

Now, back to the first equation for some management decision science. Thus, we can compare components of utilities for cost and efficiency. Just, multiply cost per kWh to compare.

For starters, do it now. Add up all your energy. Finally, save. Remember, it is an ongoing process. We use our calculations as a reference point. Lets us know where we can improve our usage. Also, could indicate we need new appliance sooner than later. It depends on the cost savings.

## Energy Efficient Appliances Infographic

Energy efficient appliances infographic is about cutting back on electricity. Actually, reducing costs to preserve our environment. Knowing how to calculate home appliance energy helps. Still, we can use manufacturers labels as well. In general, a thirty percent reduction is what we are after.

Dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, television, and refrigerator are appliances that can be manufactured to use less power than in the past. Furthermore, the way we use them plays a role. We don’t have to open the refrigerator door as much or as long to save. Unplugging the television helps too. Washing and drying full loads is another thing we can do to conserve.

We do it because dirty energy harms the environment. Burning coal for electricity. Using up potable water to generate it. All this takes a huge toll on our planet’s ecosystem.
