While purchasing any electrical appliance, we compare specifications and price of different brands available in the market. But we forget to compare the power consumption of that appliance, which is also an important factor. Now days when we are striving to save energy, we should know that how much electricity bill will be affected by the new appliance which we are planning to buy.
