Choosing energy efficient appliances is a simple and relatively low cost way to reduce your energy bills. The more energy efficient an appliance is, the less energy it needs to run, and the less energy you need to pay for.
If you’re looking to replace an appliance, look out for the energy label. This tells you how much energy an appliance uses, comparing it to similar appliances. This can help you find appliances that use the least amount of energy, which should help to lower your bills.
How you use your appliances can also affect how much energy they use. You can reduce your energy bills by making small changes to your habits. Frequency of use is one factor, but choosing Eco modes, lower temperatures, and airing clothes on a line instead of using a tumble dryer, for example, will reduce energy consumption.
