Can anyone tell me how much a Nelson Heated Auto waterer will affect my electricity bill? I'm talking about the big ones for outdoor use, not the little ones in the stalls.

If you know what electricity costs you you can use a calculator to get an estimate.

eg http://jesusnjim.com/calculators/appliance-cost.html

They have a 250 or 325 Watt heater on them, but the thermostat should mean that it is only running some of the time.

Probably less than $10 per month for the months that the heater is on.

Mine cost about $12 a month to heat, and I'm in WI. Love my Nelsons!
