Why have I received two labels in my appliance?
From March 2020, new Electrolux appliances will feature two labels - one to outline current classifications and a second showing an A - G efficiency range, coming into effect 2021. Therefore it is possible that you receive an appliance at home with to energy labels.
Why the move towards a single 'A to G' energy label
Since 1995, the EU energy label has proven to be a success: 85% of European consumers recognise and use it when purchasing. Although initially most of the models were in the lowest classes (i.e. E, F, G), new models deserved higher until the situation where today most are now in the top classes (A+++, A++, A+) and no product is now in the lowest classes. However, such a possitive result now makes it difficult for consumers to distinguish the best performing products.
The rescaling will improve understanding and coherence, thus facilitating consumers to correctly indentify the most efficient products.
