Thank you for choosing the GE 6,000 BTU 115 Volt Window Air Conditioner with Remote Model # AEL06LQ.
The estimated yearly operating cost is $48.00. The Energy Efficiency Ratio is 10.7. Your cost will depend on your utility rates and use.
The watt rating of the unit is an indication of the power used when the unit is running. Even for a particular size, no two people use an air conditioner in quite the same way. This makes a great
difference because of such factors as the number of hours you use the unit, how cool you keep the area, number of hours the unit will run during the year in a given climate zone. Estimated Yearly Operating Cost (EYOC) can be calculated as follows:
Rated Watts X KWH Cost X Cooling Hours Divided by 1000 = EYOC
1000 (eg. .08) Per Year **
K = 1000 -- KWH = 1000 Watt Hours -- Dividing by 1000 easily converts
the kilowatt rating in the formula. The Cost/KWH is the local utility rate
I hope this helps!
