Well, sure.... that's just good design. Of course you can achieve better efficiency that way.Ahh, but Paykal and Fisher have done it. They use BLDC motors in their appliances and have load sensors that only give the motors the power and speed needed for the load. Not using full power when not needed. About as good as it gets.
Are you using the Kill A Watt, or is there one that does it for cheaper than the Kill A Watt (~$25 US IIRC)?My suggestion to reducing your electrical bill would be to monitor your whole house. There are a lot of good products on the market. I use one that tells me in real time how must it is costing per hour and KW being used, also it projects the monthly bill.
