Do garbage disposals use a lot of electricity?



  1. 0 Votes

    A garbage disposal typically uses 450 watts of power. Compared to appliances like a microwave (600-1500), toaster (800-1500),and a dishwasher (1200-1500), it’s relatively low. But these are all appliances that one doesn’t actually need in their household. A refrigerator, which one does need, is comparatively only 150 watts of energy to run. A tv is only 150 or less, a computer is 80-150, etc. So considering its energy use one should try to use a garbage disposal sparingly.
