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
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.

i would just keep using it and then you'll know when the electric bill comes

i dunno they are a high current device but 20 minutes isnt long ... every day use might rise the bill 15 20 bucks guessing ...

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.
