Energy Label Reform

From March 2021 the energy rating labels on white goods such as washing machines, dishwashers,  fridge freezers have changed to simpler A-G rating. Currently there is still a lot of confusion surrounding these changes as consumers first reaction to seeing a F rated appliance is that is must be bad. This is not the case. The most popular models of fridge freezers will now be rated  E & F, they are highly efficient (formerly known A++ & A+).



These new ratings are set out to make it easier for consumers to compare electrical items. There will be a transition period where both labels will be supplied on each electrical item. The class A which is the most efficient class will be initially left empty, leaving room for progression in future developments. A QR code has been added, helping you receive more product information.

New energy labels for tumble dryers, ovens, hoods, vacuum cleaners and air-conditioners is expected to change in 2022.
