Recently I was able to confirm what the current baseload power consumption of our house is.
I haven’t been able to do it for a while, however this month before we headed off on a trip away we made sure everything in the house was turned off except for:
- Main Fridge
- NAS / Server running Unraid
- NVR + Cameras
- Network routers, many wifi radios, network swtich etc
- Various IOT devices
Base load of the house is roughly 250w draw with peaks up to about 350w when the fridge cooling cycle kicks in, there is a slight uptick in base power usage during the day as the house heats up.
For about a week, the average total power consumption was approximately 7.4KWh per day. This is a little higher than I would like, but there are quite a few network devices running that I could find a way to consolidate.
