You can know which appliance uses the most electricity by keenly observing the power meter and recording the energy consumption changes. This process is not short because you will have to test the energy changes with the appliances that are known to consume a lot of electric energy. It is a bit confusing, therefore I will take you through easy-to-understand steps on how you can narrow down and know which appliance uses the most electricity:
How To Know Which Appliance Uses The Most Electricity
- Narrow down to the category of appliances that use the most electricity. The appliances that use the most electricity are the ones that have cooling or heating systems. Examples of these appliances are Air conditioners, electrical heaters, iron boxes, refrigerators, and microwaves among others
- The next step is to narrow down to the appliances that run for the longest time compared to other appliances. Appliances like refrigerators and air conditioners are always running, therefore, they are at the top of the list of appliances that run for long hours.
- Finally is to figure out which appliances among the long hour running appliances uses the most electricity. You will switch off the rest of the appliances and leave one on for an hour. Record the change in electricity usage on the power meter before and after an hour. Do the same for the remaining appliances. Compare the readings and you will know which appliance uses the most electricity.
