Shopping for your appliance? Know your A to G

Shopping for a high efficiency appliance just got easier!

Each decade the energy efficiency of appliances has significantly improved, which is good for your pocket and the environment, but has made shopping for the best product a bit…confusing.

There were so many efficient products out there, with so many pluses (A+, A++ and even A+++), that it was hard to know what’s watt!

Well now labels for dishwashers, washing machines, washer dryers, fridge freezers and wine coolers, have been rescaled to a simplified A to G so you that can easily compare products.

The new rainbow labels are all geared towards you finding the most efficient product for your needs more easily.

See the new features below that ensure you know “what’s watt.”
