Cost in Dollars of Energy Usage
To calculate the cost of using a Hair Blow Drier, you can use the formula:
Energy consumption (kWh) x Energy price ($/kWh) = Cost of energy usage ($)
For example, if you use your Hair Blow Drier for 1 hour per day, the energy consumption would be:

Monthly and yearly costs can also be calculated:
1.25 kWh x $0.12/kWh x 30 days = $4.50 per month
For a yearly cost:
1.25 kWh x $0.12/kWh x 365 days = $54.75 per year
