What Is The Typical Cost For Running Your Electrical Home Appliances?

Energy Usage Cost For Home Appliances

The cost of powering your home keeps rising. General household electrical appliances can vary in their energy and cost consumption. We have outlined a list of the most common appliances below and calculated the approximate usage/cost per hour.

However, there is a solution. When you install Solar PV, not only do you get up to €3800 in grants from the SEAI but you also lower your dependence on fossil fuels. As a renewable resource Solar PV (combined with battery storage) is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint – and offset any potential future carbon taxes.

In addition, the Government has recently outlined it’s Climate Action Plan for tackling climate breakdown. Energlaze is committed to maximising your home comfort, but also to protecting the environment for future generations. Click here to arrange a free no obligation quote
