Meh not the end of the world kid, but don't do it again. They're LEDs and only consume about 6 Watts. 6x24=144x14=2016 / 1000 = about 2 KW/h or about 0.40 cents. Making breakfast is more expensive.

If they were old halogen light bulbs then they would run up to around 60w and hour and cost about 10x as much: $4. Not much but there’s also a considerable fire risk associated with the heat they put out

Am I the only one in this thread that isn’t considering the electricity costs but rather the risk of a fire for leaving lights on 24/7 for 2 weeks? When we were leaving for vacation I thought I would leave a light on for 2 weeks straight to appear someone was home, but a quick google search will tell you that is a fire hazard and not worth the risk.

Now I bought smart switches so I can limit how long they are on for.

u/TyH621 Jan 15 '22

I mean it is technically a fire hazard, but the risk is very very low to almost nonexistent with modern lightbulbs. It’s worth a thought especially in an older home, but I wouldn’t think it would be a primary concern

Fire? Has this ever been a thing? Seriously I've never once in my life heard that leaving lightbulbs on causes fires. It's like you've just made it up.

Everyone I know (me included) leaves our lights on when we go on holiday. Because it discourages burglars. Even better if you have one of those old school plug sockets that you set to turn on and off at the same time every day, so they're on in the evening and off during the day. Or their modern equivalent, which is just an app on your phone to do the same thing, or to manually switch them off and on from anywhere in the world.

I dunno what kinda shitty ass electrical system your country is using that leaving lightbulbs on is an enormous danger. It just doesn't seem to be a thing here in Europe. Everyone leaves their lights on when they go on holiday

Let's say the light was on for exactely 2 weeks, that's 336h. If he has 3 LEDs with 6 watts each that would be 18 watt/h. In total, that is be about 6 kilowatts for the whole time. I pay 0.26ct per kWh so that would result in 1,57€ I will never be seeing again.

Lmao i had 3 fish tanks full of live aquatic plants in my room back in the day. I had probably 6 or 7 led bulbs going all afternoon and into the night. It was so bright it lit up half the backyard at night through the windows. My dad always gave me shit about the light bill and would bring it up during arguments. So one day i looked up the going kwh rate from my power company and did exactly these calculations based on the power consumption of each bulb. It came out to like $13 a year. I did the math in front of him and I told him if the $1.08 a month is too much to ask for then id gladly start paying him that whole dollar and change. He got even more mad but never brought up my lights again lol

u/Interesting_Award_76 Jan 15 '22

I also keep aquatic plants and used to keep fish too , I leave them out in the sun, get algae sometimes but otherwise no problem, no effort. But you right, leds are so efficient that they don't even add much to the electricity bill. In my house fan and ac take up more than 90% of the bill.

I just caved cause even after calculating it and handing him his 1.50 it was miserable living with him being grumpy as fuck.

Dude can't be bother to turn of his two desktops which blow like 10 extra bucks a month being on 24/7. Acted like I was the dick when I said I'll turn my lights off if you turn your desktops off when you crash for the night.

If they were 3 100 W incandescent bulbs instead you’d be looking at 26.17€ or almost $30 based on your same European energy rates. In America our typical rate is $0.12 per KWh. For the entire time that’s about 100.8 KWh. This comes out to $12.10 or 10.60€

They sure do here in America, and light fixtures with 3 sockets for 3 incandescent bulbs are extremely common here for room lighting. Could be less but it would not be surprising at all for it to be 3.

I will say 3 100W bulbs would be pretty damn bright, back when I used incandescent I'd have stuck to 60W or 75W for this in a tri-fixture.

I have 2 75 watt equivalent bulbs in my ceiling in my bedroom and they sure as hell blast even behind a defused scone. I keep them on mainly during the day since my 2 60w bulbs in lamps won't cut it.

100W incandescent bulbs absolutely fit in normal sockets. Looking at my ceiling fixtures, they’re rated to 100W for normal bulbs and 140W for R40 bulbs.

Wattage doesn't always directly translate to brightness/power. And keep in mind most american homes were built from the ground up less than ~50 years ago, max. They're a lot safer when it comes to fire and electricity than millenia old homes that have been retrofitted for power.

Don't forget the cost of the led lights burning sooner. Almost 1000 hours (3 x 336) on a 10,000h bulb ( life of led) worth about $3 each so another $0.30 right there. (10% life).

u/sth128 Jan 15 '22

The typical unit for electrical energy, that is, the consumption of power over time, is kilowatt hours, expressed as kWh.

Do not divide kW over hour, that makes no sense.

Kilowatt, kW, on the other hand, is the unit for instantaneous power.

Think of it like this: a car's velocity is kph or kilometers per hour. To figure out the distance traveled after 3 hours, you multiply velocity by time, NOT divide.

A Watt is defined as 1 Joule per second. A Watt hour is one watt times an hour (3600 seconds), or 1J/s * 3600s.

So finally, 2 weeks of three 6watt bulbs:

14 days * 24h/day * (3 * 6w) = 6048Wh = 6kWh

Units is everything.

u/Rokurokubi83 Jan 15 '22

Just so you know those renewable energy tariffs don’t use anything different from standard, it’s all on the same nation grid, they can’t separate wound power from natural case when it’s all on the same network.

But what it does do is gives those energy companies a stipend that they use towards developing greener energies. So you’re donating towards building better renewable energy tech and installations that will benefit everyone. Win/win really and if you can afford the extra cost then it’s a worthy cause.

Lamps on timers.

u/jerstud56 Jan 15 '22

Lamps on random timers, cameras, every door has a open sensor, including garage doors. It's pretty simple to keep an eye on your home on your own in 2022. I also tell one of my long time neighbors that I'll be away and to just give the house a glance when coming and going.

u/Flat_Weird_5398 Jan 15 '22

Same, we even do this if we’re just going to be out of the house for like a day. It’s always good to make it look like there’s someone home, even if you don’t live in a burglary-prone area.

u/Veikkar1i Professional Dumbass Jan 15 '22

If you count one's for caravans where you can put a tent up too there is quite a lot of them actually.

u/CGFROSTY Jan 15 '22

Was part of that the Nuclear energy pants France is phasing out? If so, I’ll never understand why we are so quick to turn away from nuclear power instead of striving to make it even safer. If handled and disposed of properly,it’s a fairly green form of energy with near limitless supply.

I have a similar story when I was like 10 we went on a 1 week vacation to Italy and before we left I for some reason turned the heater in my room all the way up and when we came back the electrical bill was something like 6k euros my parents really loved me for that one

u/Redditacc33 Jan 15 '22

Let's say your parents payed 0.20 euros/kwh (reasonable europe price). That is 6000/0.2 = 30 000 kwh. For entire week makes: 30 000 / 24 / 7 = 178.57 kW or 178 570 watt. No single spaceheater is rated for 178 thousand watts. I call bs on this story.

u/kenman884 Jan 15 '22

A space heater would use about 500kWh for a week. At most that would be like $100. I call total BS.

u/AnxiousAyush bruh Jan 15 '22

plot twist, he had 600 more heaters

26

u/TheReplyingDutchman Jan 15 '22

There are 168 hours in a week (7x24). If the bill was 6000 euro's, that means the heater used almost 36 euro's an hour (€35.71). Even with a ridiculous fictitious high price of 35 cents per kWh (higher than any price in Europe at the moment), that means the heater is over 100 kW if my math is correct.

That's a 100.000+ watt heater running continuously 24/7 for a week. Well, or a 100 average 1000 watt heaters.

I call BS as well.
