1500 watts... Average electric bill is \$0.98/ killowatt hour (1000 watts an hour) So it wil cost around \$1.50- \$2.00/ Hour to operate

a 1500 w heater consumes 1.5 kW, and used for 1 hour it uses 1.5 kWh of energy, which costs 1.5 x 9.1 cents, that is 13.65 cents.

It depends on the price of electricity (kw/h). A 1500 watt heater is 1.5 Kw and you just have to multiply that with the cost of electricity (you can usually find that on your electric bill) you have a calculator for that on this site. See the related link for further information.

You pay for electricity consumption by the kilowatt hour. 1500 watts is equal to 1.5 kWhs. Find out from your utility power bill what you are charged per kWh. Multiply 1.5 times this charge and you will find out the cost to operate the 1500 watt heater.

To answer this question two more components are needed. One is the cost per kilowatt hour in your area and the other is the amount of hours that the heater will operate.

Look on your power company's bill and find out how much you are being charged for a Kwh. It could be anywhere from .04 to maybe even .10 per Kwh. 1500 watts is = to 1.5 Kw. Say its .06/Kwh then 1.5 x .06 = .09 cents. At this price it will cost you .09 cents for every hour you operate the heater.

A ceramic heater uses the same amount as a regular heater. Most heater use 1500 watts so in one hour a 1500 watt home heater will use 12.5 amp hours.

It would use 1.5 kilowatt-hours in 1 hour, at a price of 20-25 cents or pence.

For a general cost ,A 1500 w tank heater will be \$103.00 per month. Go to morgransou.com/energy calculator, then click on farm equipment.

a 1500 watt heater uses a power of 1500 watts or 1.5 kilowatts, so each hour it is used will take 1.5 kilowatt-hours of energy. You have to multiply the power by the time to find the energy used, and energy is what you are billed for. Kilowatt-hours are also called Units and you get billed on the units used. 1 Unit costs around \$0.15 or &pound;0.15, more or less, depending on where you are so that heater would cost about 22 cents/pence for each hour.

Answer1 kW is 3,413 BTUs. Therefore, 1500 Watts = 1.5 kW and 1.5 kW x 3413 BTU/kW = 3 413 * 1.5 = 5 119.5 BTUs per hr for a 1500 Watt heaterwhat is the electric cost/

What it costs me to run a heater does not depend on how much you are charged, but a 1500 watt heater would use 1500 watt-hours or 1.5 kWh for every hour it is run. Run for 24 hours it would use 36 kWh, also known as 36 units.

Number of BTUs not relevant to this. A 1350 watt heater is 1.35 kilowatts. When operating one hour, will consume 1.35 KWhours. 1.35 x .07= your answer per hour.

Portable electric heaters are perfect for heating smaller areas, rooms or garages. There are basically four types: quartz, infrared, ceramic and wire element. Infrared heaters have no fan thus no moving parts where the other three have fans to force air past their heating elements. These require no venting and can be used in enclosed areas. They are 100 percent efficient, that is , they output 100 percent of the energy that is input. Unlike vented gas heaters which exhaust a certain percentage of hot gas (energy) outdoors. They are relatively inexpensive to operate. Below is some information on how to calculate the cost to operate an electric heater: First, you 'll need the Kilowatt Per Hour rate from your electric bill. This can be found by adding the energy cost and the distribution cost. For example last month mine was .093503/kwh. Multiply the Watts of the heater (usually found on the back of the unit) by the Kilowatt per hour cost divided by one thousand. Below is an example for a 1500 Watt heater: 1500 W x .093503 KWH / 1000 = \$0.14 This heater would cost about 14 cents per hour to operate or \$3.37 a day. That is, if it runs continuously. Most heaters have thermostats and will cycle on and off thus reducing the total cost. &#65279;

To answer this question the size of the heater in watts is needed and what you pay per kWh in your location. The kWh rate should be available from your electrical bill.Answer from Dave Baumert - see website below:Portable Electric HeatersPortable electric heaters are perfect for heating smaller areas, rooms or garages.

heater rental is not possible by hour. The heater rental come with duration contract as the transportation cost, installation cost has to be taken care of. These rentals are for industry, storehouses , hospitals and showrooms etc.where the hourly rate can not be applicable.

Electricity is sold to consumers thru meters that record kilowatt hours: 1000 watts turned on for 1 hour= 1kwh or kilowatt hour. If cost for 1 kwh = \$0.10, then 1500 watts for 1 hour would cost 15 cents. Varies by location of the country. Check your utility bill for exact cost per kwh.

1500 watts is equivalent to 5118 BTU per hour. 1500 watt-hours is equivalent to 5118 BTU.

Cost of operating electric portable heatersYou need to know three things: Wattage of heatersOperating hours per monthCost of electricityExample:If you have a 1000 watt heater that operates 1 hour a month and costs \$1.00 per kilowatt for electricity, then it will cost \$1.00 to operate the heater for the month. more simply put - from my own experience a helluva lot!!A little more explanationYou pay for electricity by the kilowatt-hour. The rate is on your bill. If you draw 1000 watts for one hour, your bill goes up by that rate. To calculate the amount you will pay (And this works for any load, not just heaters):Find the power draw in watts of the heater.Multiply that by the number of hours you plan to run itDivide the answer by 1000 to convert from watt-hours to kilowatt-hoursMultiply the answer by your electric rate.The answer is how much it will cost to run.More from DavePortable electric heaters are perfect for heating smaller areas, rooms or garages.
