Are you still running a twenty-year-old fridge or washing machine? It might seem like the thrifty or even green option to keep it, but have you considered how much it is costing you to run?
Fridges and freezers are running 24 hours a day, washing machines and dishwashers have to heat large amounts of water. Therefore, kitchen appliances (and cars) are likely to use many times more energy in their lives than was used to manufacture them. And if you are buying second-hand appliances consider the potential running costs.
Electricals consume around 20% of the energy in our homes; with appliances consuming the bulk of this. The energy efficiency of kitchen appliances has improved dramatically in recent years due to stricter regulations and improved technology. Use our electricity cost calculator for appliances to see how much you could save per year.
