If an appliance draws 10A @ 120V,
the same appliance can draw 5A @ 240V,
(dual voltage) will it cost less
to run on the 240V, or is based on
wattage? and then voltage wouldn't
matter, or am I off?
Thanks any ideas appreciated.
There would be a slight savings in the energy lost in the wiring system, provided the wire was not made smaller due to the lower amp draw. If the load you mentioned was on 16 hours a day at 240 volts , you could save about $10 a year based on $.07/kwh and a 100 foot run of wire.
Thanks so much, got caught up
on the print on the sticker,
seen half the amps and seen
