Even though a building is an asset, maintaining one, whether household or office can be as tasking as running a business, or sometimes even more demanding. The running cost of maintaining a house alone is costly, and a chunk of this part falls on payment for electricity consumption. And what is the use of a building without an adequate supply of electricity? To cut down cost, you need to learn to identify electrical products and their consumption rates. Here are the electrical products that consume the most power;

  • Cooling Engines and Heaters: It is estimated that the heating engines in buildings consume about 47% of the electricity that comes into the building.
  • Water Heater: At least 14% of the total electrical energy is used up by the water heaters
  • Washer and Dryer (for residential buildings): These use up 13% of electricity supplied.
  • Lighting: As expected, requires only about 12%.
  • Refrigerator: As opposed to what most people think, refrigerators do not consume much of your electricity supply. They take only 4% of the total.
  • Electric Oven: The food you cook in the comforts of your home is not free too. The price you have to pay is about 3.5% of the total electrical energy coming into your building.
  • Television and Computers: These guys take up to 4% of the electricity consumption.

To cut costs spent on electricity, you should consider using products that require less amount of power to work. Also, electrical components should always be disconnected when they are not in use.
