6 key technologies below that appliances have to help you save money and a more sustainable future.
Eco programmes generally take longer than normal cycles but can save on energy. For example, in a dishwasher, the water is slowly heated, reducing energy consumption.
When buying a vacuum cleaner consider if it has a washable filter. Rather than replacing a disosable filter every six to 12 months, a washable filter can be easily cleaned with water and re-used. This saves money and reduces your impact on the enviroment.
With auto-dosing technology, your washing machine uses sensors to automatically add just the right amount of detergent, avoiding the risk of incorrect dosing which causes unnecessary waste and repeat rinsing. Fill the special compartment with detergent and the machine will do the rest - saving on water and energy bills.
Some newer condenser dryers have built in heat pump technology. During the drying cycle, warm air is re-circulated through a heat pump fro re-use, making them really efficient. Although more expensive to buy, they are cheaper to use despite having a longer run time.
Indution hobs create a magnetic field between the induction element and the base of your cookware, heating the pan directly. This means that less energy is wasted heating the cooking surface. Plus, as induction hobs are quick to heat up and respond, cooking will be quicker and more efficient, saving you time and money.
Sensor drying technology detects the size and weight of the laundry load, so the dryer is only on for as long as it needs to be. Once your chosen level of dryness is reached, the appliance switches off, saving energy. Sensor drying technology can be found on both inexpensive and top-of-the-range models.
