Your routine is built by stringing together an endless list of small actions that you do practically with your eyes closed. You wake up, use the bathroom, eat, wash your clothes...even just to relax, you need to do something.
It seems like you’re not spending anything during these situations. You aren’t in a store, you don't see any salespeople, nor do you clearly identify any product. Lastly and most importantly, you don’t see the price. However, in reality, most of these activities cost money.
How much money? It’s not easy to calculate, because it depends on many factors, including the price you're paying for energy.
We've tried to calculate roughly what the routine will cost you. We have taken a number of average costs and included the electricity tax, meter rental amount and VAT (21% for powers over 10 kW; 10% for powers under that amount). However, this price will depend on the tariff you have contracted.
One shower, 15 cents
If you have an electric heater, one 10-minute shower will cost around 0.15 euros. As a reference, we’ve taken the average power (4.4 kW) for these types of heaters.
However, each time you shower, you don't need to think about how much you're spending. In reality, you're saving, because one shower is cheaper (and more eco-friendly) than filling up the bathtub.
Remember to regulate the temperature of the water between 30ºC and 35ºC to find the perfect balance between a pleasant water temperature and a bill that is under control.
Drying your hair, 2 cents
If styling your hair is expensive (just ask bald people), blame your hairdresser or the price of shampoo, because keeping it dry is one of the cheapest routines in your daily life.
If we take 15 minutes to dry our hair using a medium-low power dryer (2.2 kW), we’ll spend around 0.02 euros on electricity.
Shaving your beard: 13 cents
One 10-minute shave with a 4 kW electric razor will cost you approximately 0.13 euros.
If you shave with a non-electric razor, the price is a total mystery, given that it totally depends on how much time you take, whether or not you always have the tap running, and especially how hot you need the water.
