If you’re shopping for a new appliance, you’ll find some have got new style labels with a simple A to G rating. Go straight to AMDEA’s label guide to find out more.
These labels which classify and explain the energy efficiency of the model, will help you decide which product is best for your needs. You will find new labels on:

Why have new labels?
Vast improvements in energy saving technology had raised these large appliances to the top of the rating scale, where they were crowded from A to A+++. To make it easier to compare products and create space for further developments, the ratings have been revised.
Using new measurements, current models will be rated simply from A to G. This spreads the ratings more evenly across the scale, while leaving space at the top for further innovations in performance and cutting edge features.
