Measure Refrigerator Power Consumption – This Is How It Works

Measure the refrigerator’s power consumption – this is how it works

In the long run, the excessive power consumption of a refrigerator or freezer can become very expensive. Especially since energy prices have skyrocketed and there is no end in sight. So that you don’t get a nasty surprise at the end of the year, you should regularly measure the power consumption of your various household appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, or televisions.

  • The only thing you need to determine the power consumption is a so-called energy meter. The commercially available power meters usually look like a socket with a display.
  • To determine the electricity consumption of your refrigerator, first plug the energy meter into the socket. Then place the refrigerator plug in the power meter socket.
  • Before you put the device into operation, find out what you pay for a kilowatt hour of electricity from your energy supplier. Enter this value into the ammeter.
  • With the help of the specific numbers, the device then not only shows you the power consumption of your refrigerator in kilowatts.
  • You can also see very vividly what the electricity consumption of the refrigerator costs you.
  • Tip: If the measurement shows that your household appliance requires too much energy, various options are easily practicable to significantly reduce the power consumption of your refrigerator.
