This is a question that is currently applied in all electrical appliances. Because the current prices are rising constantly and consumers are buying more environmentally aware – because it would be good to know whether the replacement for the old vacuum cleaner and the energy consumption is a step forward.
And this is in fact at the Roombas the case. You have to understand that almost all Roomba with a so-called. NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) battery (operating voltage 14.4 V) are provided. Although this NiMH battery has a high energy density, but also – albeit very small – self-discharge (at the Li-ion battery, this once small), if it is not used. To save energy and extend battery life, you should absolutely consider the following:
But there always is, but that one should switch off electrical devices that are not just really used! Is that also true for the Roomba?Definitely not! The life and energy efficiency of the battery is significantly improved when the standby mode is used consistently.Let’s look at the power consumption of a Roomba and compare it with a conventional vacuum cleaner:
Overall, therefore, consumes the Roomba, if we use it every day 2 hours around 55.62 KWh .
We hold the other hand the consumption of a conventional 1500 watt vacuum cleaner, we now only once a week for an hourrunning, it may result in
in, that the Roomba sucks frequently, thorough and he is on top of that energy saving!
If we have a average electricity price (link is external)based managed (Stand 2014) of 28.3 cents per KWh, we obtain with respect to the power consumption and the cost of electricity following table:
|Operating time in
hours per week
|Consumption per Year||Total power costs|
|Roomba||14||55.62 KWh||15.74 Euro|
|conventional vacuum cleaner||1||78 KWh||22,07 Euro|
|conventional vacuum cleaner||2||156 KWh||44,15 Euro|
