Good afternoon (or morning, evening, night, etc!) all,
Having recently moved into a new flat I’ve been racking my brains as to why my electricity bill is comparatively higher than anticipated and it struck me that one thing I hadn’t considered might be the turbo trainer and fan (Kickr Core & 55w Pedestal fan).
Now, having plugged the relevant numbers into various online calculators, it looks like the turbo trainer and fan combo stacks up to about 463watts combined draw [55w fan + 408w Kickr (1.7amp X 240volts)]. In kilowatts, that’s 0.46kW, multiplied by my usual MV 7-ish hours a week training plan chucks out approx 12.88kWh per month.
At my current electricity rate of 15.19p/kWh, that works out at approx £1.95 a month (I think)?
Are my calculations drastically wrong here? (I’m trying to dispel my girlfriend’s misconception that this is the reason for the high electricity bills…)
