Los Angeles uses 69 billionÊkilowatt hours every year, on average. This makes up almost 25% of the kilowatt hour usage of the whole state of California, and is the larges…t usage in the state.Ê
Yes it does
Yes, both the sockets and amperage are adaptable between American and Canadian appliances.
no it doesnt
The KW of a home depends on the amount of electrical equipment in the home. An electric utilization equipment such as an electric heater, air conditioner, water heater, stove …and/or dryer all add significant KW loads to a home. Things like refrigerators, freezers, forced air furnace also are major contributors. Lighting is usually less than most loads in a home unless you have some large wattage (500 to 1000 watt), fixtures. A range for a normal home can vary widely during a day between 1.0 kw to 15.0 kw. in a home that is mostly electric. There are a couple of was to calculate an estimate for your home's KW total. You can get an average by dividing the KWH on your electric bill by the total hours in that month's billing cycle. (24 X # of days) This an average not a peak,which what you are using when every thing is on at the same time. To figure peak, add up all the name plate amp rates of all your electrical equipment and multiply by their voltage. (usually 120 or 240 for residential) IE. If your refrigerator is listed as 12 amps and is 120 volts it will be using 1.44 kw.(1440 watts) If the wattage is listed no multiplying is necessary, just add it up.
Improper question; change the question so it is either "How many kWh per hour does a computer use?" or "How many kW does a computer use?" The term "kW" means "kWh/h." … On the average, a home computer of current manufacture consumes about 0.25 kWh/h
It depends on the model, if the hair dryer is a 1500 watt hair dryer, then it uses 1500 watts on high heat. If the hair dryer is a 2000 watt hair dryer, then it uses 2000 wa…tts on high heat. Hair dryers come in all different size wattage, so it depends on the size wattage of the dryer. Most hair dryers are 1500 watts.
The maximum nominal power that can be supplied by a 13-A socket is 13 x 230 = 2990 W. Since the regulations allow a variation of 230 V +10%/-6% -i.e. a maximum voltage of 253 …V, in practice the maximum load is typically 3 kW.
A domestic microwave is usually less than a kilowatt - 850 wats.
To dry your hair quicker but it does damage your hair more
as many as the nearest transformer can supply
1.5 HP is 1.5 x 746 watts, 1119 watts, in theory. A 1.5 HP motor might have a power conversion efficiency of 80%, so the watts consumed can be estimated as 1119/0.8 which …is 1400 watts.
No electrical appliance uses "kilowatts per hour". The question is meaningless and should be rephrased as "How many kWh (kilowatt hours) per hour does a home computer use?", o…r, better, "How many kW (kilowatts) does a home computer use?" Typical home computers use around 100 Watts (one tenth of a kW), which is, of course, one tenth of a kWh per hour. This is around 55 W for the computer and 45 W for the monitor. Printers take extra. Many computers have energy saving modes when they are not being used and their consumption may then drop to 10W (one hundredth of a kW) or less.
