Big Energy Saving Tip
Did you know it is possible to connect the washing machine to the hot water supply if you have hot and cold fill? If the hot water comes from an alternative source of energy (e.g. solar water heating panels), use the hot water supply to decrease energy consumption Saving you a lot of money each year.
Delay start time
when you have solar panels on your house then its good to start the dishwasher at the peak sunlight in the day, but if you don't you can start the washing machiner at the economic tariff of electricity depending on the contract.
Do not be fooled by manufacturers, nowadays they own lots of brands one company may own up to 10 brands but a lot of the parts inside are the same. Always check with the salesman when you buy a new washing machine which holding company owns it. Don't be frightened to ask questions like are the bearings changeable in this model it is the salesman job to know this information
