Electrical Bill

Does the electrical bill goes up considerably if you have a circulator pump (Taco 0013 1/6hp)? It is on an Axeman 260.

Check your bill, met-ed doesn't read the meters every month anymore, every other month ,or more they read them. They estimate :mad: the reading from previous years. Your bill possably should say estimated or actual reading . They told me I could read the meter for them . I guess I should repair the line too when it's down. :mad: :mad: :mad:

the taco 0013 draws 2.0 amps of juice. about the same as 2- 100 watt light bulbs.

If you're paying $0.20 a kilowatt hour and the pump ran 4 hours a day, about $0.16.

Running 24 hours a day at $.18 a KWH would be about $25 a month.

I have a Taco and enjoy it's strong pump action over the inline pumps that seem to run all the time. I have a high volume hot water sytem with large radiators so the Taco is bettor suited for me. I save $50 a month by having my boiler heat my hot water in the winter so that offsets the electrical cost of the Taco. I also enjoy hearing that big Taco motor come on when the thermostat calls for heat.

You can find out the cost in electric of anything as long as you know the running time and watts.

If you only have the amps you can convert the amps to watts my multiplying by the voltage.

2(amps) * 110(volts) = 220 watts


Take the wattage and multiply by the hours of use per month, lets say 4 hours a day times 30 days:

220(watts)* 120(hours) = 26,400 watt hours

Divide by 1000 to get kilowatt hours:

26,400 / 1000 = 26.4kWh

Multiply the kilowatt hours by your electric rate, if it's 20 cents/kWh:

26.4kWh * $0.20 = $5.28 to run it for 4 hours a day over a 30 day period.
