# How much electricity does a fan use a month?

According to the Central Iowa Power Cooperative the typical box fan is rated at 200 watts. So if a kilowatt costs 12 cents per hour, the fan would cost 20% of that or 2.4 cents per hour. Extend that out to a month and it works out to \$17.28 per month if it runs round the clock (2.4 cents x 24 hours x 30 days).

Then, how much power does a fan use per hour?

Fans range in size from 36 inches to 56 inches using 55 to 100 watts, a typical 48 inch ceiling fan will use 75 watts. Click calculate to find the energy consumption of a 48 inch ceiling fan using 75 Watts for 3 hours a day @ \$0.10 per kWh.
