I noticed alot of people are concerned over the electric bills if they keep a Chiller... So I'm posting this as a guide to calculating the electric bills...

A X B (Hours) = C

? X E = [(? X E) X C] / (A X B) - ? is the wattage for your Chiller

Example:

180W X 24hrs = $28.05 / month

300W X 24hrs = [(300 X 24) X 28.05] / 180 X 24 =

= (7200 X 28.05) / 4320

= $46.75

I got the info from the PUB (Public Utilities Board) website basing on a Fridge hence the 180w example... Like I said this is a guide but I feel that you can have a fairly accurate way to calculate the amount of money you need to pay per month for the electricity bills...

I know the Chiller does not run 24 hrs so you can estimate the number of hours it will run per day... At least you will have an idea how much it would cost to run it per month... For 24hrs at least you will know that this is the most it would cost you...

Hope this helps...
