ENERGY SAVING AND SMART HOME APPLIANCES

Most of the energy efficient appliances on the market today may involve a higher initial investment than their less efficient counterparts, this fact often has more to do with them being considered as "premium products" and  also because they are made with higher quality materials. For example, the cost of a new appliance such as a refrigerator has more to do with the size of the unit than its energy efficiency.

When looking to find the right home appliances, usually homeowners will more likely compare the products offered on the market and consider factors such as price, cost and physical appearance. We know, that an important factor into selecting appliances, goes towards the appearance, secondly to the features the appliance offers (for example ; appearance: a trendy stainless steel refrigerator -  Features: with ice maker, water dispenser which can even fill a pitcher....). Today's shoppers are better informed, therefore they are better prepared to research and will often look at a third aspect (which can become a very important decisive factor in the buying process), which consist of the energy consumption or saving that the appliance may offer.  Sometimes energy consumers find energy efficient products much more appealing.

Choosing an energy efficient appliance for your home can lead to hundreds of dollars saved per year – as well as great energy performance. 

Nowadays, we all have a busy schedule, between work, school, the kids and a million other things, having Smart appliances in your home, will allow you to make daily tasks happen “in the background” while you get on with other important things. As this technology becomes more accessible, and more affordable, your home could become more "energy efficient", safer, and even more trendy and sleeker.

Appliances

When purchasing appliances, you want a machine that works hard, is long-lasting and fits within your budget. 

Energy-efficient appliances are often presented as offering a better value because they help consumers save energy – which, at the end translate into saving money.

 

But how much can you really save? Is it really worth it to purchase an energy-efficient appliance? 

 

Energy Star appliances will save you from 10% to 50% of the energy required to run them, therefore you will end up saving on your energy bills. As an informed consumer, you must be aware that buying an energy-efficient appliance may involve having to invest a little bit more, as those appliances come with a premium.  But after all (usually) you buy appliances that should have a lifetime of around 10 or more years, which, we believe, makes it worth paying the additional premium to get an energy efficient appliance, on the long run you will surely end up saving on your energy bills.

 

An appliance with an Energy Star label has been certified to save energy, money, as well as the environment. Many brands now offers appliances that meet the Energy Star criteria;  such as Samsung, GE, and LG, as well as Miele, Hotpoint, Blomberg, Beko, Insignia, Marathon, Daewoo, and Crosley. In this competitive market, additional companies may soon follow. Even if a premium is added, many companies offer affordable pricing and  a variety of high performance appliances offering not only energy-efficient features but also giving access to new sophisticated features and technologies.

Every appliance comes with two price tags: the purchase price and the cost of operating the product. ENERGY STAR certified appliances help consumers save money on operating costs by reducing energy use without sacrificing performance.
