### Measurement of Power consumption of the rest of the house appliances.

Once I made last calculations I realized that my computer was the eating Beast of my house, Number one watts eater because he ate 56% of all the watts and .

To know how much power did the rest of the appliances consume I had to change the system because the Cable where I measured the Intensity had at one of his ends the special connector only valid just for the computer.

Therefore I went to the supermarket and I bought a simple 3 Plug with switch base where I pealed the cable and took out and separate the phase, neutral and earth wires as I did with the computer cable.

With this system you can just plug any appliance to the base and see how much intensity and therefore power does it consume.

For example a 100 W bulb consumed in my house 0.35 Amperes wich meant that was really consuming ( 232v x 0.35 A) = 81 Watts.

This way you can measure the rest of the appliances power consumption in your house.

One interesting calculation that I still haven´t done is how much Standby power consumption have t my TV, VCR, DVD. That will be my following calculation.
