While washer dryers can be a big help, they use a bit more energy than regular washing machines because they can do two jobs in one. However, features like heat pumps cut down energy use by recycling hot air from the wash cycle.
Absolutely, it's worth buying energy-efficient appliances for both for your pocket and the planet. The more energy-efficient an appliance is, the more money you’ll save on your bills. It also means you’ll use less energy overall, which is great news for the environment. It’s a win-win.
Smart lighting is great for loads of reasons, and one of the best is that it’s super efficient. For starters, smart bulbs don’t give off as much heat as normal bulbs, and they tend last longer too. Plus, you can set them to turn off automatically and set the brightness using your phone.
A-rated appliances are the most energy efficient and typically cost much less to run. Appliances are rated from A to G on the energy efficiency scale, and you can narrow down your search to specific ratings using the filters on our site. with filters. You’ll also see the energy rating on the right-hand side of every product page.
Energy labels give you an idea of how efficient an appliance is. If an appliance is rated A on the scale, that means it is the most energy efficient model available. If it’s a G rating though, that tells you it’s the least efficient. We’ve got energy ratings for all our appliances, and they’re colour-coded to make things easier.
1. Try not to leave appliances on standby mode, because they’ll still use energy even when you aren’t using them.
2. Swap your regular bulbs for smart bulbs that’ll use less energy and last longer.
3. Check your windows and doors for draughts to make sure your home isn’t losing heat.
4. Try washing your laundry at lower temperatures. 30°C is cooler than standard cycles, but it'll still give clothes a thorough wash.
5. Avoid the tumble dryer wherever possible. But if you can’t do without it, a heat pump model is much more efficient.
6. Swap your bath for a shower instead and try to limit your time under the water –a 4-minute shower could save you loads!
7. We all love a brew, but don’t overfill the kettle. Try to only use as much water as you actually need.
8. If you’ve got a dishwasher, make sure you only run it once it’s completely full. This will help save energy and water.
9. Try lowering your thermostat. If it’s too high, you could be wasting energy (and money).
10. Check that your fridge is set to the right temperature. We recommend between 1°C - 4°C for the best results. As a bonus, try not to overfill your fridge since this can use up more energy too.
The best energy rating on any appliance (dishwashers included) is an A rating.
Most modern washing machines have a few energy-efficient settings to choose from. Quick wash or short cycle programmes use less energy and water, while eco cycles tend to work at lower temperatures.
On average, LED TVs are the most energy efficient since the bulbs inside don’t need as much electricity. OLED and QLED models are similar, but tend to use a bit more energy in exchange for a better picture.
Any fridge or freezer with an A rating on the energy efficiency scale is a good choice. Different brands might vary a little and have specific energy-saving features, but as long as they’re A-rated you’re in good hands.
