just look on the back see how many kilowatts it uses....................then look at your electricity bill to see how much you pay for 1 kilowatt per hour......................just simple maths then :o)
You need to know how much electricity it uses, in Watts (W) or kilowatts (1000W or kW) , This is shown on a label/plate on the unit (by law). Multiply this by your unit cost (UK average is around 12p per Kilowatt, per hour or kWh) thus;

500W = 6p per hour
1kW = 12p per hour
2kW = 24p per hour
3kW = 36p per hour.

It won't be higher than 3kW as that is the most you can connect to a standard 13A socket.
