# How much do treadmills consume?

In order to understand the real energy consumption of treadmills, I must make an introductory chapel at the speech.

One horse equals the power 735 , 49875 Watt , to get the KW from the horses just multiply the horses by 0.74 , on the contrary to get the horses starting from the KW just multiply the KW by 1.36.

## At A Glance: Our Top 10 Picks For Best Treadmill

• A 1 horsepower engine equals 0.74

• 1.5 hp at 1.10 kilowatts

• 2.0 hp at 1.47 kilowatts

• 2.5 hp at 1.84 kilowatts

• 3.0 to 2.21 kilowatts

• 3.5 to 2.57 kilowatts

Each treadmill has its own rated power , expressed in Watts (W) or in thousands of Watts (kW), always shown on a special label placed on the appliance.

The Watt, therefore, is a measure of power, which should not be confused with the Watt hour (Wh) which is a measure of energy.

To understand how much an appliance such as the fan can consume, a very simple calculation can be made, for example, if the fan has 4 speeds and we use it at medium speed, we just need to divide the wattage by 2 (if the fan power is 200 watts at speed two will be 100 watts).

If we keep it on all night for 8 hours, it will be enough to multiply 100 x 8 = 800 which are no longer the watts but the watt-hours Wh and to calculate the cost we must multiply the KWh by the cost of the current (always expressed in kWh).

Honestly, reading the bill I have great difficulty in finding this data …. as there are the F1-F2-F3 time slots…. also the rates change if you are a resident or not at the home and the rates also change according to your operator, however, today the cost of Kw I understand it can vary from 0.17 to 0.33 cents !! !!

To calculate the consumption of more complex appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, treadmills, the calculations are not so simple.

Regarding the treadmill, we have several variables such as the speed used, the electric inclination or inclination , the weight of the user, … in the next article we will deepen the energy consumption of the treadmill.

### What does it cost to keep a machine running?

If power costs 17-25p per kilowatt hour (KWh) as reported by the British media – taxes and incidental charges included – using a treadmill for an hour a day will cost you between 50p and £1. The motorized treadmill, like all electrical appliances, has a nominal power.

### Is it true that treadmills use a lot of electricity in India?

The amount of electricity used by a treadmill is determined on the motor’s horsepower and the user’s weight. Your treadmill consumes 2948 Watts/1000 Watts = 2.948 units of power while you run for an hour.

### Is it true that a treadmill consumes a lot of electricity?

The treadmill’s maximum output per hour is 200 watts. On a daily basis, the average American consumes roughly 28,000 watt-hours. With an electricity cost of \$0.12 per kilowatt-hour and the power that would have been used by a motorized equipment, the maximal treadmill workout, generating 200 watts for an hour, would save 2.4 cents.

### Is it true that treadmills use a lot of electricity?

Treadmills are by far the most popular machines in the gym, but they’re also the most energy-intensive. A treadmill consumes between 600 and 700 watts of energy on average. When a treadmill gets older, it might use up to 30% more energy than when it was new.
