Does a hairdryer consume a lot of electricity? I'm on a budget right now I just want to make sure my electric bill doesn't go any higher.?

I have fine thin hair and I usually use the lower setting of the dryer. It takes me 10-15 minutes to dry. Or 20 min if it's cold weather.

How much do you think this would affect my bill?


My dryer is a CONAIR 1875

model 185R

125V AC 60Hz 1875W

    If used like that everyday it will add approximately $9.12 on a monthly bill.

    1850 watts is more power than most space heaters use. they more or less max out at 1500 watts. Think about that.

    Using a hair dryer should not make much difference in your energy bill.

    For the most accurate estimate of its cost to use,

    get a Kill-A-Watt plug-in meter.

    Hair  dryer is   usually  around  1500  watts.  Thus you use one  Kwh (kilowatt hour) every   40  minutes of    use.   If you   are  charged   $0.10  per  KWh  then you use  $0.01   every  four  minutes.
