Wow, that was a warm long weekend that we just went through! The sudden rise in temperatures may have you thinking about replacing some of your old appliances. Do you have a rust-skinned fridge in the garage or under the house, a newer model air-conditioner, etc.
So how do you buy a very efficient appliance? Where does that kind of information exist?
Bingo! for consumers. The Australian government has a mandated label efficiency system that all large appliances must abide by – e.g. washing machines, fridges, air conditioners, etc.
Click on the links below if you want to know more about efficiency and energy (or water) rating system to start reading. There is a new Zoned Energy Label detailing how efficient a specific air conditioner is in your climatic zone.
Get the ‘power’ back in your hands when entering the appliance store, challenge any salesperson statements that don’t sound right with your new found knowledge! Shop around, be energy label smart and you should be on the right path to improve your home’s efficiency.
Buy Wisely. Stay Safe. Be Smart!
