Impact of Candle Warmers on Your Electric Bill

I have heard that using electric candlewarmers will really increase your electric bill since it is basically a hot plate. Has anyone noticed this?

Thanks,

I HAVE USED A CANDLEWARMER IN MY HOME SINCE THANKSGIVING AND I HAVE SEEN NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN MY ELECTRIC BILL.

I LOVE MY CANDLEWARMER; THE FRAGRANCE OF THE WARM CANDLE WAX PERMEATES MY ENTIRE HOME!

monthly cost if on continuous and elec cost .12 per Kilowatt Hour

30 days/mo x 24 hours/day x .16 KW x .12/KWHR = $13.83/mo

The back of the warmer should list the Watts. Mine is 16 watts which is .16 KW. You can check your elec bill for cost per KWHR.
