I am trying to find out what my monthly Electric Hot Water Heater Kilowatt usage is....
I have a Whirlpool (made by American Water Heater) 50 Gallon water heater.
My electric company says the water heater can cost anywhere from $75-$90 a month.
That sounds really really high to me.
I know it may be tough to give an accurate number because of all the variables.....but if anyone has a ballpark figure that would be great.
Unit is 4 years old
Temperature is set at approximately 120 degrees
Whirlpool brand (Purchased at Lowes)
Water heater is wrapped with an insulation blanket
Household has 2 adults, 1 2-year-old
No one home during the day
2 showers, 1 bath per day
Most laundry done with cold or warm water
Location: Fairfield, Connecticut
