# How many kilowatts does a house use in a day?

If you are a perfectly average American living in a perfectly average household, your monthly electricity bill will read 911 kilowatt hours (kWh), which costs \$114. But most of us don't live in perfectly average households.

Also to know is, how many watts do I need for my house?

Homeowners can often power most household appliances using between 3000 and 6500 watts. If your home has a smaller furnace and city water, you can generally expect that 3000-5000 watts will cover your needs. If you have a larger furnace and/or a well pump, you will likely need a 5000 to 6500 watt generator.

How much is 1000 kWh of electricity?

Here's the formula to figure the cost of running a device: wattage x hours used ÷ 1000 x price per kWh = cost of electricity.
For example, let's say you leave a 100-watt bulb running continuously (730 hours a month), and you're paying 15¢/kWh. Your cost to run the bulb all month is 100 x 730 ÷ 1000 x 15¢ = \$10.95.
