AGA Running Costs

AGA running costs depend upon the model that you own, the fuel supply you use and how you use your cooker.

The Everyday Radiant Heat range of AGA cookers, which includes the AGA eR3 Series and the AGA eR7 Series, are much more controllable and are designed to be switched on and off as required. These newer models can run from as little as £11.48 per week.

The 24/7 Radiant Heat collection are designed to always be on and ready to cook. Whilst the models may be more expensive to run, they also take the place of other electrical items such as heaters, an electric kettle and a tumble drier.

New AGA Models

The AGA eR3 Series and 7 Series models now provide increased flexibility and greater control, providing the opportunity to lower running costs significantly thanks to fast heat up times and the ability to allow individual operation of ovens and hotplates. In addition, adjustable temperatures and the ability to turn off functions when not required enables you to control how much energy you use. For example there is no need to leave hotplates on since they are designed to heat up in 10-12 minutes.

*Running costs for the new models are presently AGA estimates.

**as tested by AGA March 2020 using the AGA R3 100-4i model.

*** **Average cost for electricity 18.9p/kWh for 2021 (Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, January 2022). Future predictions on the price of electricity per kWh is difficult to predict. For our estimates we have used the Department for Business and energy data based on a 2021 average. At present the best prediction going forward is around 21p/kWh.

Each test excludes any cooking and is with all doors and lids closed.
