## Cost Per Degree of Heating Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Cost Per Degree of Heating.

CPDH = EC / T

- Where CPDH is the cost per degree of heating ($/C or F)
- EC is the total cost spent on electricity used by the heater ($)
- T is the total change in temperature (C of F)

## What is a Cost Per Degree of Heating?

Definition:

A cost per degree of heating is the amount of money spent to raise the temperature of a room by one degree. This will depend on the size of the room, cost of electricity, insulation of the room, and the efficiency of the heater.

## How to Calculate Cost Per Degree of Heating?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Cost Per Degree of Heating.

First, determine the total cost spent on electricity used by the heater. In this case, the heater used $3.00 worth of electricity.

Next, determine the total temperature change. The temperature increased by 10 degrees F in this example.

Finally, calculate the cost per degree of heating using the formula above:

CPDH = EC / T

CPDH = 3.00 / 10

CPDH = $.30 /degree F
