What is the average household appliance wattage usage?

I need to make sure my appliances are not using too much wattage.

It's about 1000 watts or so. This average is based on how much electrical energy is being used in the kitchen by microwave and oven. Also, it's based on laundry washer usage.

It varies a lot depending on the appliance. The range of wattage goes between 200 and 700 watts, obviously a washing machine, heating devices will use up much more energy than others.

It goes for about 120, but it will vary. The average wattage use depends on the appliance and the maker. I would suggest reviewing the manual or contacting the manufacturer for specifics. Also, remember that old appliances will consume more power. Newer appliances are more efficient and built to save!
