Understanding the Power Consumption of White Noise Machines

Jan 23, 2024

White noise machines are designed to produce a consistent and soothing background sounds that can aid sleep, relaxation, and concentration. But how much power does a white noise machine consume? Generally, white noise machines do not consume a significant amount of electricity as they are mostly energy-efficient. Most white noise machines consume between 0.5 to 10 watts per hour, depending on the size, features, and brand. For example, a 10-watt white noise machine running for 8 hours each day would use approximately 80 watt-hours or 0.08 kilowatt-hours (kWh). Considering the average US electricity rate of 13.31 cents per kWh, the estimated monthly cost of using a 10-watt white noise machine for 8 hours each day would be around $0.27. It's important to choose an energy-efficient white noise machine and use it responsibly for a low environmental impact and cost savings.
