I understand that energy star ratings are designed to give the consumer some idea how efficient a device is, but I want to know how they calculate their kwh per year rating? I would assume that it has to do with how many kwh’s per complete cycle X so many cycles per year, but how many cycles per year is their mark to measure by.
I ask this because I acquired a kill a watt kwh measuring device and I want to know how many cycles to multiply one complete cycle of my clothes dryer by to compair its “energy star rating”.
