What do energy ratings mean?

    Introduced by the EU in 2010, energy efficiency certifications range from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). At the top of the scale the grading system has A+, A++ and A+++ to show improvements.

    The market is moving faster than the certifications, which complicates things further because the A+++ machines can now have a minus percentage, such as A+++ -30%, which means it uses almost a third less energy that a A+++ machine.

    The EU ECO Label

      The coloured bars on the label indicate where the machine falls in the EU table of energy consumption. This is based on how much energy is consumed on a 60C cotton wash cycle. (A less common setting now that most people wash at 30C or 40C.) The EU Flower symbol is there to show further reductions in noise, water and electricity usage.

      The lower section of the label helps with working out the cost by showing actual consumption in Kwh (Kilowatts per hour) of the machine. Costs will depend on prices set by your electricity supplier. However, electricity is often not as expensive as detergent, and it could also be argued that the environmental impact of improper use of the detergent is higher.

            Market-leading energy efficiency

              AEGs A+++ washing machines incorporate intelligent features and responsive technology to achieve optimal performance. Our new ÖKOMix washing machine is our most energy-efficient yet. Awarded the rating of A+++ -50% ÖKOMix leads the market, using half as much energy of a A+++ washing machine.

                Energy ratings are not necessarily a measure of washing performance. One of the most energy intensive things a washing machine does is heat water, so by reducing volume of water in the machine manufacturers can lower energy requirements. But the ÖKOMix has the highest levels of efficiency with exceptional washing performance, thanks to the innovations of premixing water and detergent, delivering this using the direct spray and the ÖKOInvertor motor.
