Whirlpool installs energy-savings website tool
Whirlpool has installed energy-savings tool Youreko on its website to help consumers understand the financial benefit of efficient appliances.
Youreko rates products according to their running costs and shows the financial savings made over each product’s lifetime.
Whirlpool’s A+++ energy rated Supreme Care 10 kg washing machine (FSCR 10432 S), for example, is featured as a top model in the UK on Youreko, presented with a ‘Best of the Best’ badge which indicates that the appliance boasts the lowest running cost of all 10 kg washing machines across all brands in the UK.
Users can personalise their usage for each appliance to see what their electricity cost or saving is. Running costs for the product are also compared to other similar products and recommendations are made when alternatives are found that are cheaper to run.
Catherine Balderson, Brand Manager, Whirlpool, said: “A top purchase driver for major appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines is low energy consumption. Consumers are now, more than ever, aware that energy efficiency of major appliances really contributes to the cost of running their homes.
“Whirlpool is committed to intuitively meet the needs of its consumers and Youreko is an excellent tool that helps consumers to make an informed decision when purchasing a new appliance.”
