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,
P.J. from Delaware

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.

I think one would be fine...But I have 7 full size warmers and 2 plug in nite light warmers...My bill was always close to $400...I finally went around the house unplugging the all/turning them off...I even have ivy wrapped around clear Xmas lights on top of my kitchen cabinets...They'd stay on from dark to daylight the next morning everyday...I turned off and kept off everything...My bill was $189 this month!!!! Just stating the facts!!!
