How much will my chiller affect my electricity bill?

The equation to calculate energy usage for any appliance (a chiller included) is as follows:

The wattage for each chiller model can be found on the technical specifications page. If you have good ventilation, modest lighting and energy efficient pumps the chiller would run approximately 15 minutes per hour. If your lighting is very intense and your pumps generate a lot of heat, your chiller would run approximately 40 minutes per hour. Of course, at night it will run much less. Keeping the air filter clean is essential as well. Air filters impact efficiency a great deal. Other factors include ambient humidity, your local cost of electricity, and wheter or not you have the heater or UV sterilization kits installed.
