Most Smeg ovens are rated A+ for energy efficiency — and many include several energy-saving features, from multi-glazed doors which help insulate the cavity, to ECO modes which reduce electricity consumption when pre-heating.
Induction Hobs transfer heat directly to cookware electromagnetically, making them more energy-efficient than Gas or Ceramic Hobs. Hobs don't have energy efficiency ratings, but it is worth highlighting the energy-saving features available on Smeg's Induction range.
Most of our cooling range, previously awarded the top rating of A+++, is now D-rated for energy efficiency because of recent, industry-wide energy label rescaling. Rest-assured though that our fridge-freezer range is just as energy-efficient as before.
Most of our newest Dishwashers, previously awarded the top rating of A+++, are now B-rated for energy efficiency because of recent, industry-wide energy label rescaling. Rest-assured though that the range is just as energy-efficient as before.
Some Smeg Dishwashers can wash over 5 dinners' worth of cutlery and crockery with just 9 L of water*¹ — the same amount an average washing-up bowl can hold.
*¹ Based on the average U.K. household size of 2.4 people using a Smeg Dishwasher with a water usage of 9 L / cycle and 13 place settings.
Simple changes can have a big impact
Leaving household appliances on standby can cost around £55 / year*². Save by switching them off at the mains when not in use.
If you've had your appliance for over 10 years, chances are it's not very energy efficient. Consider upgrading to a newer, better performing model.
Washing your clothes at a lower temperature of 30 ° and doing one run per week less / year, can save around £28 / year*² on your energy bill.
It’s no surprise that the bigger your appliance, the more electricity it uses. A smaller fridge will use less energy than a larger one, even if it has the same energy rating, so choose what’s suitable for your needs.
We all love a cuppa, but many of us tend to overfill our kettles which can add around £11 / year*² to your electricity bill. Try a Smeg Mini Kettle with a smaller 800 mL capacity to help keep costs down.
