A cooker hood is essential to keep your kitchen odour free and smoke-free. It sucks the air from the kitchen and either sent it outside or remove the smell from the air and recirculate it back to the kitchen. The power consumption and energy usage of cooker hood can be calculated here. The power consumption of cooker hood ranges from 65 watts to 300 watts depending on its extraction rate. A typical rice cooker consumes 105 watts of power.
Enter the wattage, hours of usage and cost per kWh. The energy usage calculator for cooker hood gives you the total energy consumed by them. Also, you can find how much power does your cooker hood consume use. To check the current electricity price per kWh in your region refer to Global Electricity rates. It is necessary to enter the right cost per unit(kWh) to find the exact price.

Terms and definitions:
Power usage of device in watts as mentioned in the label of the lamp.
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:
Number of hours the load is used per day.
The electricity usage depends on the wattage, number of hours of usage. The utility company charges you for the total number of kilo-watt-hour of energy you have consumed. Kilowatt-hour is the product of power consumption of the load and the number of hours of usage.

A typical cooker hood consumes 0.105 kWh of energy per hour. That means an hour of usage can cost you 0.012 cents.
The working principle of a cooker hood is simple. It has a fan that sucks air from the kitchen and pushes it out through the duct. Sometimes an external fan is fitted in the duct to effectively push the air out. In the case of the recirculating hood, the air is passed through a grease filter and a charcoal filter and recirculated back. The charcoal filter removes the odour from the air.
- Do not operate the hood unnecessarily.
