How to use Antminer at home?

Recommended Posts

First of all, you need to understand the power consumption of the Antminer and the load of the cables you use.

Most Antminers consume more than 1000 W of power. If the power consumption is 1600W:

Safe load is 35 A (8000 W) for 4 mm² copper cable

Safe load is 48 A (10500 W) for 6 mm² copper cable

Safe load is 65 A (14300 W) for 10 mm² copper cable

Second, understand the power consumption of your home appliances.

Here are some examples:

Rice cooker: 800 watts

Electric water heater: 3000 watts

Electric kettle: 1500 watts

A/C 1.5 hp: 3000 watts

Finally, calculate the power consumption.

Add up the power consumption of all household appliances and the power consumption of the Antminer. If the power consumption is higher than the safe load, you will not be able to use the Antminer at home.

The noise generated by an Antminer is about 80db which is considered relatively high, or according the web and other ENT specialists: A whisper is about 30 dB, regular talk is about 60 dB, and it is about 95 dB for a motorcycle engine to operate. Noise over 70 dB can start to affect your hearing for an extended period of time. Loud noise above 120 dB will damage your ears instantly.

Perhaps it is not a good idea to use it at home!

Yes. The noise of Antminer is relatively high, so if you want to use Antminer at home,  need to reduce the noise through a muffler or by modifying water cooling. Generally,  low-noise GPU miner is recommended for mining at home.
