### Terms and definitions:

#### Wattage:

Power usage of the device in watts as mentioned on its label.

#### Cost per unit:

The average cost per unit charged by the electric utility. Every country has different tariff rates. Visit: Global Electricity prices for details if you don’t know how much the utility company charges you per unit or kWH.

#### Units per day:

The number of units of electricity consumed by the load every day considering the entered operation hours.

#### Hours of usage:

The number of hours the load is used per day.

The electricity usage depends on the wattage and the number of hours of usage. The utility company charges you for the total kilowatt-hour of energy you have consumed. Kilowatt-hour is the product of the power consumption of the load and the number of hours of usage.

## Power consumption of a vacuum cleaner

A typical vacuum cleaner consumes 1.4kWh of energy per hour of usage. That means an hour of usage can cost you 17 cents.

There are various models of vacuum cleaners available in the market. Generally, most of the vacuum cleaner has an electric motor that spins an air blower and creates negative pressure inside the dust collector. The pressure inside the drum shall be lesser than the surrounding pressure. This creates a suction effect and the air along with the debris is sucked into it.
