An average home uses about 439 pounds of copper, broken down roughly as follows:
195 pounds – building wire
151 pounds – plumbing tube, fillings, valves
24 pounds – plumbers’ brass goods
47 pounds – built-in appliances
12 pounds – builders hardware
10 pounds – other wire and tube
The average home contains 4000 pounds of coper for electric wiring, water pipes and appliances.
That’s incorrect the link you posted said 400 lbs of copper in a standard home.
