* TV’s,VCR’s and other devices left plugged in, but not turned on, still draw power.**To estimate the number of hours that a refrigerator actually operates at its maximum wattage, divide the total time the refrigerator is plugged in by three. Refrigerators, although turned “on” all the time, actually cycle on and off as needed to maintain interior temperatures.Another option for finding appliance energy ratings is to find the Energy Star rating and divide that by 365 to get your daily kwh usage.
