    Energy-efficient washing machines


    A washing machine’s energy rating will tell you how energy efficient the model is. Ratings range from A – G, and a more efficient appliance means you’ll save more money on your energy bills. Look out for a washing machine with an energy rating of C or above, these will be some of the most energy efficient models on the market.

    Energy-efficient features to look out for

    Sensor controlled wash

    Washing machines often have sensors that measure the load. Their job is to make sure the appliance only uses as much water as it actually needs, cutting down on waste and putting some cash back in your pocket.

    Eco Wash

    An Eco Wash programme uses lower temperatures during a cycle. It’s great for small loads or refreshing clothes that aren't too dirty. And since it doesn’t need as much energy, it’ll save you some cash.

    Inverter Motor

    An Inverter Motor spins the drum with magnets, so there’s less friction during a cycle. That means the washing machine runs much smoother and quieter, while reducing energy waste..

    Quick Wash

    If you’ve only worn an outfit once or twice, then a Quick Wash is ideal. This programme can get through a couple of bits in as little as 15 minutes, so there’s no need to waste water and energy on a full cycle.
