As the path to a sustainable environment goes through awareness, we are going to talk about a factor that you should take into consideration when buying an appliance. This is its energy efficiency index, which must appear on the label in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2017/1365.
This Regulation classifies electrical appliances into seven letters, with G corresponding to the least efficient and A to the most sustainable. In addition, the categories A+, A++, and A+++ are included, which are awarded to the best ecological appliances.
The best green appliances
Choosing these devices will guarantee better performance with lower consumption. In any case, the Regulation also requires indicating the approximate annual consumption of the appliance. So you can make approximations of how profitable it is for you to opt for the most efficient options.
Buying one of these devices will reduce your carbon footprint. Especially if you follow a series of good practices such as:
– Turn them off when you are not using them.
– Use them at half load when you are not going to fill them.
– Keep them in good condition.
– Avoid its abusive use.
But good practices will not help if you use inefficient devices.
