Today, many customers have a problem to assess how much energy they use. The A + and A ++ signs are not understandable to them. Mostly, they always choose the washing machine or the cheapest fridge, but they think they save energy. The new scale will deprive them of any warnings.
Now, the devices receiving electricity (equipment, electronics, telephones, boilers), get the energy class of G (the highest usage) to A +++ (the smallest). The fans are the most skeptical. A + is the lowest energy efficiency, and A +++ is the highest.
In addition, the label specifies in kilowatt-hours how many tools each year use and use current and water, and what the efficiency of the functions it has, such as turning the washing machine t or dried in the dishwasher. A common customer is lost in all this.
There will be a scale of A to G
The government has just adopted the measure in new signs that are the basis of an energy device efficiency class, which is to adapt them to EU requirements. The new system provides for the removal of positive points and the labeling of products on a scale from A to G, where A means the highest saving, and G is the highest energy use. The new label will come into force in 2021.
Polish consumers have a low awareness of saving. Most of their home appliances are class A +. This is also the cheapest, which explains why they are most popular. But some buyers may think that they choose one of the most productive products on the market, although in reality it is completely different.
– In the new A + system there will be F or even G – comments in an interview with "Pomorska" Magdalena Skłodowska from the portal WysokieNapiecie.pl. – According to the European Commission, some customers are unable to read the meaning of positive points, they do not understand the scale and therefore can be misled. Therefore, there will be no extra points. New classes will facilitate conscious purchasing.
A common customer is lost in the marks on washing machines or dishwashers. The government has just adopted the measure in new signs that are the basis of an energy device efficiency class, which is to adapt them to EU requirements.
