Household Appliances and Lighting

Many new domestic appliances carry an EU energy label which rates products from A-G for energy efficiency where A is most energy efficient and G least energy efficient. However these ratings do not provide an indication of actual energy costs and can be misleading; it does not follow that all A rated appliances cost the same to run, in some categories a B rated appliance can cost less to run than an A rated appliance. Confused? Well this section provides you with the facts about the energy consumption of various domestic appliances; it includes guidance on actual energy costs and whether energy consumption should be a factor in your purchasing decision. Click on the different products below to help you compare energy costs.

How much does it cost to use a hob?


Information on the energy consumption and running costs of cooking appliances is not readily available. Energy efficiency labelling is in place for electric ovens but not for gas ovens. Also there are no energy labels for hobs, either electric or gas. So if you are choosing a new cooker, how can you assess likely running costs and are differences in running costs sufficient to influence your purchasing decision? Below are some tips to help you.

Tumble Dryers

How Much does it cost to run your Tumble Dryer?


Drying your clothes in a tumble dryer can be expensive as they consume large amounts of energy. The EU energy label for tumble dryers is calculated using the cotton drying cycle with a maximum load. Products are rated A – G according to the energy required per kilogramme of washing.

Fridge Freezer

fridge freezer energy consumptionFridges and freezers are switched on 24 hours a day 7 days a week so running costs are high. All new fridges and freezers carry an EU energy efficiency rating from A++ (the most efficient) to G (the least efficient). The vast majority of products are at least A rated. However for refrigeration products the rating is not based on actual energy consumption but the energy efficiency in relation to size (the internal volume of the compartments).

Washing Machines

How much does it cost to run a washing Machine?


For washing machines the energy efficiency scale is calculated using a cotton cycle at 60°C (140°F) with a maximum declared load. This load is typically 6 kg. The energy efficiency index is in kWh per kilogramme of washing.

Washer Dryers

washing machine energy to operateWasher dryers are regarded as a separate category on the energy efficiency scale to ordinary washersand so an A rated washer dryer cannot be compared with an A rated washing machine. The energy consumption figures are based on a full wash and dry cycle with a maximum load. The table below shows the costs of using the wash cycle only or the full wash and dry cycle on a typical washer dryer machine.
