Horsepower of HVAC blowers


What is the horsepower and energy consumption of the blower in the average HVAC system? I've had customers ask, but I didn't have a definitive answer.

How much does using the blower to circulate heat from a gas fireplace effect the life of the blower?

I've been wondering about energy consumption too -- dont' have any answer.

At work they run the blower 24/7 to help filter the air. It's been that way about 10 years now.

HP blower on adequate duct system, running 24/7 at 10 cents per KWh.
About $326.00

About $490.00

The same size VS blower on adequate duct system, about half as much.
