Save Money When You Save Energy
Washing machines and dishwashers use large amounts of water and energy, and fridge freezers run 24 hours a day.
Needless to say, buying an item with better energy ratings can save you money on utility bills. But when you buy an energy efficient model, you could be saving money in other areas that you might not be thinking about:
- With some new models, the dryer stops drying when it detects that the laundry is dry, so it doesn’t keep using energy to run.
- Washing machines and dishwashers use up less water, so the metre won’t be as high.
- And of course, new items last longer. The newer the product, the longer it’ll run for without needing repairs. On average, replacement is after 12.5 years for a fridge and 12 years for a washing machine.
