resistive load examples...

A resistive load contains no inductance and as such there is no difference between the watts required to start and run it, the load is more or less the same; light bulbs, toasters, convection ovens, hot plates, curling irons and coffee makers are all examples of resistive loads.

To assist you in calculating the power requirement for your home or business, we have compiled a list of common household/office appliances and their ‘typical’ power requirements in watts.

Please... no emails pointing out that these values don't match those of your own appliances... they are provided as a rough guide only and may differ from the actual power requirement of your household appliances. If you can get nameplate data from your appliances, your calculations will be more accurate.
