The battle of fuel stoves – induction cookers is all the time a scorching subject. Every faction has its personal arguments and nobody agrees. One of many factors that each “induction cookers” and “fuel stoves” get the fitting a part of themselves is the price of use – customers of induction cookers say that induction cookers are extra economical, whereas individuals who prepare dinner fuel say “a It takes a number of months for the fuel tank to expire, so it is cheaper.”
Since February 2021, my grandmother’s home makes use of a mixture of each fuel and induction cookers
In at present’s article we are going to examine the cooking value of fuel range or induction cooker cheaper. In an effort to keep away from the scenario of “divorce seeing elephants” or somebody saying that I promote fuel stoves, promote induction cookers, I’ll get precise knowledge from my house.
Please learn the earlier articles:
My household lives half of the time with my grandmother’s home, the opposite half of the time with my grandfather’s home, so the variety of individuals in my grandfather’s home isn’t mounted. The paternal aspect has switched to utilizing a full-time induction cooker for a few years, whereas the maternal household nonetheless maintains a fuel range. Ranging from February 2021, the brand new household will use an previous single induction cooker with a capability of 1900W.
As a result of the previous induction cooker is just too shabby, the fuel range continues to be used to prepare dinner deliciously
Usually, my grandmother’s home solely has 2 adults mounted, however from April 2021 to now, my household has been fully exterior my grandmother. Thus, within the final 5 months, there are Four adults and a pair of youngsters in my grandmother’s home, so power consumption (electrical energy + fuel) can even enhance.
Consumption value of fuel range
Fuel name log – knowledge from January 2020
To calculate the consumption value of a fuel range is less complicated, as a result of it doesn’t need to bear the facility for different units akin to an induction cooker. I’ll take the time knowledge between fuel calls, the value of every bottle and divide the typical of the day.
Under is a desk of fuel name logs of grandparents from January 2020 to August 2021. I made a desk so that you can see simply, and the precise knowledge is within the photograph above:
Make a desk of imply values:
From the desk above you may see:
1.From February 2021 when beginning Utilized in mixture with a single induction cooker (inexperienced background) the interval between fuel calls will increase considerably, or in different phrases The time of utilizing the identical fuel tank is almost doubled (+80,8%).
2. From April 2021 to current (inexperienced background, daring letters), the variety of common individuals within the household has greater than doubled (from 02 adults to 04 adults and 02 youngsters) and fuel costs have skyrocketed. as much as 415Okay / bottle however the typical fuel invoice per day is way decrease (39.3%).
3. If fuel costs don’t change then the usage of fuel + magnetic mixture saves nearly half (46.19%).
Precise electrical energy invoice:
I exploit electrical energy invoice knowledge by means of EVN’s Epoint software. On this, there’s a historical past of electrical energy payments for particular months and years. I made a desk so that you can see simply:
From the above desk, we will draw:
1.From February 2021 when use 1 extra induction hob then electrical energy invoice enhance in comparison with January however negligible (40,000 VND).
2.From April 2021 when the variety of individuals within the household will increase then Electrical energy invoice not solely didn’t enhance but in addition cut back. That is most likely as a result of I usually flip off electrical units once I depart the room, however individuals usually do not keep in mind to show it off.
3.June, July, August The electrical energy invoice is excessive yearly as a result of use 2 air conditioners in 10-11 hours a day.
4.In comparison with the identical interval in 2020 decrease electrical energy invoice in 2021.
The price of the induction cooker
Like different electrical home equipment, the facility consumption is clearly indicated on the induction cooker. You possibly can see 1000W, 1900W or 2000W energy ranges in single induction cookers, and 3000W, 4000W and even 5000W in double or triple induction cookers. The upper the wattage, the larger the facility consumption, nonetheless the above figures are the utmost that the hob can obtain and never a set energy stage. While you enhance the temperature (enhance the quantity) or use 2-Three cooking zones concurrently, the facility consumption will increase however the cooking time decreases and vice versa.
To calculate the price of electrical energy for the induction cooker, we base it instantly on this energy consumption parameter and the precise cooking time in 1 month. Energy consumption is calculated in KW/h (signature, electrical energy quantity) and that is additionally the premise for month-to-month electrical energy invoice calculation.
Instance: A household of Four has a double induction hob (2 cooking zones) with a capability of 2000W every. The utmost complete energy of the range is 4000W or Four KW.
Suppose daily we use the range to prepare dinner 2 essential meals with a complete time of 60 minutes and concurrently use each cooking zones on the highest capability.
Thus, the full cooking time in 1 month is: 60 x 30 = 1800 minutes, equal to 30 hours.
The kitchen’s electrical energy consumption is 30 (hours/2 cooking zones/month) x 4 (KW) = 120 KW/h (or 120 kilos of electrical energy, variety of electrical energy).
Calculated in response to EVN’s laddered electrical energy tariff:
Stage 1: For kWh from zero to 50 is 1,678 VND
Stage 2: For kWh from 51 to 100 is 1,734 VND
Stage 3: For kWh from 101 to 200 is 2,014 VND
We could have:
Electrical energy = 50 x 1,678 + 50 x 1,734 + 20 x 2,014 = 210.88 thousand dong.
If all calculated in response to the very best stage of electrical energy is 2,014 thousand VND/1 KW/h, the electrical energy invoice is 120 x 2 = 240 thousand VND.
That’s, with the situation that the issue is assumed, the electrical energy invoice of the induction cooker will fluctuate within the vary of 211Okay to 240Okay/month.
Please be aware that we’re calculating the very best electrical energy consumption of the range and in response to the very best value within the electrical energy invoice scale. Precise utilization could also be under or above this – relying on the scale of your loved ones and your cooking habits.
From the desk of combination values above, you most likely have additionally come to the conclusion that fuel or electrical heating is dearer. In my case:
1.Mixture of fuel + magnetic assist as much as 46% off fuel invoice.
2.Collect + magnetic mixture doesn’t enhance electrical energy payments an excessive amount of.
3. Turning off different electrical units when leaving the room helps to scale back electrical energy payments fairly a bit.
