How much does it cost to boil a kettle?
We are often told to only use as much water as we need in a kettle and not to fill it to the top, but what are the potential annual saving in doing this. Well it takes roughly 4.5 minutes to boil a full (2 litre) kettle with a power rating of 3kW (kilowatts).
|Kettle||Energy to boil a kettle||Cost to boil a kettle|
|Half Full||0.113 KWh||£0.017|
|Kettle||Annual Energy Use||Annual Cost (and CO2 emissions)|
|Full||164 KWh||£25.318 (60.3kg)|
|Half Full||82 KWh||£12.656 (30.2kg)|
Well There it is, a full year of operating a kettle in this way should save you about £12.656 (30.2kg) . Less than you might imagine but if you are a real tea fiend and boil it 4 times a day you would double the saving! Every little counts.
