While energy prices are soaring, the 20 Hours is interested in the consumption of your electrical and electronic devices.

Faced with the risk of energy shortages, how can you limit your consumption? The daily life of the French is full of electrical appliances. To prepare, cook or relax, the devices, which seem innocuous, are however energy-intensive. The one that requires the most power is electric heating. The hot water tank is particularly energy-intensive: a classic device of this type can consume between 1,000 and 3,000 watts.

On average, each family has 99 electrical or electronic devices. The kitchen is not left out, since an electric oven can consume up to 4,000 watts. For washing machines, the same fight: in full cycle, it’s 2,500 watts consumed. Consumption is generally related to the size of equipment, but some may be more surprising. A kettle, for example, can go up to 2,500 watts.
