## Hot Tub Electricity Cost Forumla

The following formula is used to estimate the electricity cost of a hot tub.

HTEC = P / 1000 * EC * U

• Where HTEC is the hot tub electricity cost (\$/day)
• P is the power consumption of the hot tub (watts)
• EC is the electricity cost (\$/kwh)
• U is the hours of usage per day

## How much does a hot tub cost in electricity?

On average, a hot tub will cost around \$55.00 per month in electricity.

## How to calculate electricity cost?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate the electricity cost of a hot tub.

First, determine the power consumption of the hot tub when running. On average, hot tubs consume 3500 watts of power when running.

Next, determine the total hours of usage per day. In this example, the total hours of usage are 2 hours per day.

Next, determine the cost of electricity in the area. In this scenario, the electricity costs \$1.50 KWH.

Finally, calculate the hot tub electricity cost using the formula above:

HTEC = P / 1000 * EC * U

HTEC = 3500 / 1000 * 1.50 * 2

HTEC = \$10.5 / day

= \$310.25 / month
