Why should I consider energy efficient appliances?

Sometimes it’s easy to focus on the initial outlay for an appliance without thinking about the ongoing running costs. However, if you spend a little more on an appliance with a higher energy rating whether it’s a washing machine, fridge freezer or dishwasher, you should save money in the long run plus do your bit to help the environment.  

What should I consider when choosing energy efficient appliances?

The short answer is you should go for the appliance with highest energy efficient rating you can afford as it will pay dividends in the long run. Aim for an A graded appliance or A+, A++, or even A+++ for maximum energy savings.

Always look for an appliance with an Energy Saving Trust logo which is an added assurance that the appliance you’re looking to buy really is energy efficient. Dalzells of Markethill is an Energy saving Trust recommended retailer.

Points to consider when choosing energy efficient appliances

  • Cost vs value – We appreciate that everyone loves a bargain but instead of only thinking about the initial cost think about the savings in the long run and the value of the savings in the long run
  • Size – Make sure you have enough space to fit your new energy saving appliance before buying.
  • Energy consumption – Also check out the energy consumption information on each appliance which should be printed on it. This will help you work out your running costs.
