So how much does it cost to run a kiln ?

amps x volts = watts

Divide watts by 1000 to get Kilowatts

Multiple the answer by your rate for electricity That will give you the amount to heat the kiln. Once heated the heating rate drops by 30-40% so figure on 0.6 or 0.7 times the kilowatt rate.

For example:

15 amp x 120 volts= 1800 watts

1800 watts/ 1000=1.8 kilowatts

1.8 kilowatts x $rate/kilowatt hour

If your rate is 17 cents/ kilowatt hour

1.8 kilowatts x $0.17/kilowatt hour=$0.31/hr to heat

and between $0.31/hr x 0.7 = $0.22 / hr and $0.31/hr x 0.6 = $0.19 / hr to keep it on
