This can be only calculated by knowing what the wattage draw of the fridge is and what the utility company charges you per kilowatt hour. To find the wattage multiply the amps times the volts of the fridge. To find the kilowatt/hour you are charged, look on your utility bill or call the company and ask what you are charged per kilowatt hour.

It depends on the fridge. Newer fridges are generally more efficient, so would use less electricity, although size is a definite factor. There should be sufficient information on the fridge to determine watts, though you may have to calculate. Watts = amps x volts. Volts = 120. I'd use 120 to avoid underestimating. In any case, running a fridge only for beer is an avoidable cost unless you make better use of it. Replacing an old fridge and a separate freezer with a newer'' more efficient fridge with useable freezer space probably uses less electricity than 2 older appliances.

A fridge runs about half the time with out opening the door. Opening the door many times a month might add about 30 hours to the regular run time of the fridge. 30 hours of running a fridge costs about .90 dollar. If you open the fridge about 10 times a day for a month that would mean you open the fridge 90 times. so each opening of the fridge probably costs about .001 dollars. or 1/10 of a penny. Its inserting very hot items or leaving the door open for a long time while deciding what to eat that will cost more. obviously refrigerators run less in the winter unless you heat your house irregularly high and they run more in the summer. And again the price will be a bit more for each door use in the summer as the temp escaping in to the fridge when you open it is hotter.

it will cost too much!Just to add on...The above answer is true. However, for most homes, a garage door is something you can't live without.The cost depends on many different factors.First, where are you located?

Steel door vs Wood door vs etc.Is it a single car garage door or double garage door?Do you want windows?Do you want insulation?Is your current garage door size a typical size?How is your garage actually setup? Some installation are trickier than others.This is a basic list, but these are the major factors in cost.

Electricity cost not a controllable cost. The manager cannot influence this type of expense. To the extent where a cost cannot be managed it is indeed a non controllable, now for electricity, to the extent where consumption can be raised or lowered it becomes a controllable cost. If the consumption can be optimized through processes or equipments it then is a controllable cost.
