Hi all, Good evening. I'm from bangalore,India. I'm sharing a room space with my roomate. He does possess a computer which he uses frequently. Other electric resuources we have are 1)Geaser 2) TV 3) Fan The total number of units consumed before he came(Before he started using computer) is less than 70 units. But now the bill comes for more than 80 units. But my roomate says that electric consumption of a computer will be same as that of TV or Fan. Is it so ? Please reply. Regards.
There are plenty of resources to figure out how much electricity appliances use. If you want exact numbers, there's plug-in monitors available. In the case of TV's and computers, there are lots of variables (size of tv vs. size of monitor, how many peripherals the computer has, how long each is used in a day, etc.) but in general, a computer will draw more electricity than a tv.
