Calculating Watts

 

AMPS X VOLTS = WATTS

If an appliance is rated at 5 amps (@ 120V), the load is 600 watts per hour( 5A X 120V = 600W).

 

Watts aren't sufficient to measure your power consumption.  Watts are multiplied by hours and/or fractions of an hour to come up with watt hours. 

WATTS  X  HOURS   = WATT HOURS

A 5 amp load for 8 hours a day would come to 4800 watt-hours per day (( 5A X 120V = 600W) X 8hr =4800 watt hours)

 

Your home's electrical bill is calculated in kilowatt hours which is just watt hours divided by 1000.
