Energy Saving Tips

Did you know that home appliances account for around 45% of your annual household electricity bill?

As well as upgrading to EcoSmart appliances, use our helpful energy saving tips to help save you even more money.

1. Size matters

The most efficient products come in small packages, so be careful when comparing two differently sized appliances. Just because they have the same energy rating doesn’t mean that they use the same amount of electricity.

2. Standby

Did you know that, on average, UK households spend £45 - £80 per year powering appliances left in standby mode? As well as turning off your TVs and microwaves, consider switching off broadband routers and cordless telephones when you leave the house.

3. Off the boil

On average a UK household boils the kettle 1,500 times a year.

Consider purchasing an ECO kettle that only boils the amount of water required and can use 20% less energy than the average kettle.

4. Human vs. Machine

Don’t wash up by hand. Use an EcoSmart dishwasher and save time, money and effort. Beko dishwashers use as little as 6l of water which is up to 85% less water than washing by hand.

5. Wash at 30°C

Washing at 30°C can be just as effective as washing at 40°C or more.

A reduction of just 3°C in the average wash temperature of Europe is equivalent to eliminating the emissions from over 700,000 cars.

6. Upgrade and save

Standard tumble dryers cost a fortune to run. By switching to an EcoSmart tumble dryer you could save over £400 a year - the biggest money saving from all your appliances.
