Energy Efficient Hobs

The most energy efficient hob is an induction hob. When it comes to energy use, research indicates that induction jobs are cheaper to run, being around 74% efficient in converting energy to heat while using 57% less energy than gas hobs. AEG hobs are as stylish as they are efficient. All the features are designed to give you a great cooking experience whilst using all AEG’s technology to preserve energy and save you money, every time you use it.

Be Mindful With The Dishwasher

Most modern dishwashers will offer an economy or eco programme, so it’s worth using this for day to day washing up. These programmes can save up to 20% of energy by using less power to heat the water. AEG's Ecometer advises you on how to optimize energy and water consumption. Be sure to only run your dishwasher when it’s full.

Energy Efficient Kitchen Lighting

There are plenty of ways to reduce costs when it comes to lighting your kitchen, and what’s more, many of them also help to make the aesthetic of your kitchen better.

On a very simple level, switching your kitchen lamps over to energy saving LED lights will conserve energy. On the whole kitchen lights are left on more than any other light in the home, so making a simple switch will help you to save on cost.

Save Energy When Washing Clothes

Many modern washing machines have fantastic energy saving modes and technology built into them. Our partner AEG have a innovative ProSense technology® that automatically weighs each load to provide a tailored cycle. Sensors then adjust washing times precisely, ensuring optimum treatment for every garment. Your laundry comes out with that fresh, new feeling every time, plus you save water and energy.

Heating Your Kitchen

Make sure that you heat your kitchen effectively. As the heart of the home, we often make a lot of use of our kitchens, but that doesn’t mean that we always need the radiator blasting. Often when cooking the oven will keep the space warm, so don’t forget to dial down the radiators.

Equally when planning out your kitchen design, ask your designer to consider where heat may be lost and insulate accordingly.
