What we do

Where we provide appliances in our homes, we use models that have high efficiency ratings under the EU Energy Labelling Scheme.

The label rates products from dark green (most efficient) to red (least efficient). The label also shows total energy consumption and provides other information relevant to that product, such as water consumption and noise levels for washing machines, and screen size for televisions.

What you can do

Fill it up before you switch it on

Washing machines and dishwashers use more energy by doing two half loads than one full load. Try and wait until you have a full load before turning on your machine.
