Cooker. Choose an oven with an A+ rating. A pyrolytic function can also be an energy-intensive means of cleaning which can contribute to higher running costs.
Microwave. They provide a much more energy-efficient way of cooking food as unlike ovens they only heat your food and not the air-space inside.
Dishwasher. Choose an A+++ rating as they cost around £7 less to run than the lowest rated dishwashers that you can buy of the same size, and they use less water.
Fridge Freezer. It’s best to choose an A+++ fridge freezer as it’s the one appliance that has to be switched on 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- Kettle. Invest in a kettle that only boils the amount of water you need to save around 20% less energy than a traditional kettle.
