Your fridge and freezer are switched on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so it’s well worth finding models that are energy efficient. Choosing the correct energy efficient fridge freezer could save you around £86 in energy bills and 410 kg of CO2 over the lifetime of the product.

Recommended energy efficient refrigeration appliances all have an A+ or A++ energy rating. However because the energy rating is based upon classification by size, a smaller A rated fridge could use less energy than a larger A+ rated fridge. You can compare the total energy consumption of appliances by looking for their yearly energy consumption in kWh / annum displayed on the bottom right of its energy label.

You could shave a few extra pounds off your energy bill by keeping your refrigerator in a cooler part of your home, ie out of direct sunlight and away from radiators, and by not setting the refrigeration control to the coolest temperature. In the interest of food safety and energy efficiency do not put warm food in either your fridge or freezer until it has cooled down to at least room temperature.

Dryers bursting with environmental friendliness! Miele Heat Pump tumble dryers save money by using up to 40% less energy than conventional dryers.

Heat pump dryer technology explained

Miele’s ‘A’ rated Heat Pump tumble dryers are the perfect choice if you are looking for an efficient and environmentally friendly dryer with reduced energy consumption.

With an ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency and no need for external vents, Miele Heat Pump dryers are environmentally friendly, cost effective and suitable for every home.

Traditional condenser dryers draw air from the room to cool the hot air that has passed through the drum and remove the moisture that has been extracted from your clothes. Heat Pump dryers, on the other hand, use a closed circuit system with a heat pump to rapidly cool the hot air as it leaves the drum. As the air is cooled, the moisture that has been removed from your clothes is condensed. This air is then quickly reheated and passed back through the drum to continue the drying process.

By using this closed air circuit, air is efficiently recycled and energy is conserved within the drying system. In doing so, Miele Heat Pump dryers use much less energy to dry your clothes than a conventional dryer.

Benefits for you

Miele provides peace of mind with reliable, gentle and efficient care for your laundry.

Economical

Heat Pump technology offers running costs that are typically 40% lower than with a conventional Miele condenser tumble dryer.

Quiet

Miele’s Heat Pump dryer is extremely quiet and returns negligible amounts of condensate back into the room, making it ideal for use in a ‘living’ kitchen environment.

Gentle

The drying temperature has been reduced by about 25% (compared to a conventional Miele condenser tumble dryer) for all drying programmes, ensuring excellent care for all your laundry without compromising on results or extending cycle times.

Benefits for the environment

‘A’ rated

With an ‘A’ rating for energy efficiency, Heat Pump dryers are the perfect solution for anyone looking for an efficient and environmentally friendly tumble dryer. With energy consumption typically reduced by 40%, Heat Pump dryers offer savings for your pocket and the planet.

Woodland Trust

The Woodland Trust is passionate about the need to increase native woodland cover in the UK not only to create more beautiful landscapes and help wildlife prosper but also to help improve the quality of everyone’s lives. With the help of their members and supporters they plant thousands of trees at their woodland creation sites, but mostly woodland creation is delivered by private landowners, local authorities and developers.

Miele has partnered with Woodland Trust to help the protection and conservation of UK woodland. For every Heat Pump tumble dryer sold, Miele will plant five trees in woodland throughout the UK.

Benchmarks for a new dimension of energy efficiency are set by appliances in Liebherr‘s additional A+++ energy efficiency class.

Some of the most popular energy efficient fridge freezers from Liebherr are the stainless steel CTPESF3016, the white CNP3513, the stainless steel CNPESF3913 and the stunning black glass CBNPGB3956.

If there was an efficiency rating better than ‘A’ the Siemens WT46W566GB condensor dryer would be accredited with it because it’s actually 50% more efficient than a standard ‘A’ rated dryer!

To put this into perspective the next model down in the Siemens range which is ‘B’ energy rated uses an impressive 3.74kWh of electricity based on a 7kg load on the cotton cupboard dry setting. The ‘A’ rated WT46W566GB uses an amazing 1.35kWh on exactly the same load and setting, making this machine almost three times more efficient to use than the ‘B’ rated equivalent model.

 

Unique features:

  • ‘A’ energy rating
  • Sensor drying
  • Internal light
  • Self cleaning condensor
  • SoftDry stainless steel drum
  • Heat pump technology
  • Free 5 year parts & labour warranty
  • Time delay function

 

So if you’re wondering whether it’s worth upgrading to the ‘A’ rated model for an extra few pounds just think how much you will save over the life of the machine!
