Appliance Audit Form

Instructions

1. Check off all appliances you use in your home.
2. Compare your own estimated kwh use for each appliance with an average given and adjust up or down.
3. Multiply 'your average kwh use' by 'your average cost per kwh'. This will give you the estimated monthly cost to run each appliance.
