## Estimated Heating Bill Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Estimated Heating Bill.

**HB = P * U / 1000 * CE**

- Where HB is the Estimated Heating Bill ($/day)
- P is the heater power consumption (W)
- U is the average usage per day (hrs)
- CE is the cost of electricity ($/kWh)

## How to Calculate Estimated Heating Bill?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Estimated Heating Bill.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the heater power consumption (W).
- The heater power consumption (W) is calculated to be : 500.

- Next, determine the average usage per day (hrs).
- The average usage per day (hrs) is measured to be: 8.

- Next, determine the cost of electricity ($/kWh).
- The cost of electricity ($/kWh) is found to be: 1.25.

- Finally, calculate the Estimated Heating Bill using the formula above:

HB = P * U / 1000 * CE

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

HB = 500 * 8 / 1000 * 1.25 = 5.00 ($/day)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

heater power consumption (W) = 700

average usage per day (hrs) = 8

cost of electricity ($/kWh) = .75

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

HB = P * U / 1000 * CE =** **($/day)
