This website is brilliant for finding the power consumption of electrical appliances, and sorts them in order of efficiency.

So if you want to find the most efficient TV, fridge etc. that uses the least electricity its a "must see" website:

I just sent them an email with some links - the minimum 32 inch TV they show is 90 watts - can't find any 60 watt LED backlit TVs on there
e.g. the Sharp ones (like Sharp LC32LE600E)

Site looks good - Hopefully they will update it

Looks like a good site.... but its missing some of the latest Bosch products.

If they can keep the website up to date, it will be really useful.

hi folks,
      the site is a great idea but if you are looking for a very good cost effective and easy run vacuum cleaner give the dyson 600watt version a try. it actually uses less than 600watt according to my meter and it works wonders.my wife is delighted with ours. Grin Grin

searching for a new fridge freezer today- sust-it is the most useful website but might be useful to know that I also found the marks and spencer website allows you to list items according to energy efficiency- actually it might have been energy usage but it helps sift them. none of the other websites i visited could differentiate on the basis of efficiency.

bosch fridge freezer A++ (so 208 kwh per year on the comparable test) for under 400 - think that's what i'll go for!

The problem is that the most efficient appliances  can be three times more expensive or to put it another way  more than the cost of  a cheaper one plus the means to generate the extra electricity.

I've got a Viewsonic VA1701WB and the one listed on that site is Viewsonic VA1703WB but the difference in watts is 7. Specifications-wise its almost the same on everything.

biff, ths is because momentarily the pull of initial power will be more than the in use power.....

 Glad to see you all making use of a site I recommended ages ago, it was very handy when looking for our new washing machine (cold water / hot water in thread a good year + ago) made decisionmaking far easier & is a regular electrical port of call for us.

I think it is good site and worth looking over before a purchase.  Although, I wish the purchase price was more up front and grid sortable.

Don't know if anyone agrees, but I see far more well priced good-value products getting good energy marks. Sure you can spend hundreds extra on the swanky stuff, but I feel that the energy/running costs premium continues to be eroded, thank heavens.

eg washing machine at 300 ~ 33pa vs class leading at ~30 probably >500.

So with many value maufacturers making the extra effort energy-wise it makes these comparision resources very helpful.

I can tell you that our average elec consumption is around 16 kWh per day when its the 3 of us, and when my son is at home ( and X-Box in use) for several hours a day, we use approx 5 - 7 kWh MORE a day !    wackoold      Huh

I would guess it is down to the component, (motors, compressors, etc.), manufacturers
having to produce low energy versions for the swanky brands
and giving up on their inefficient out-dated product lines.

Similar process to automotive devices:
Bosch ABS only originally available on Mercedes,
now ubiquitous, (or copied by competitors).
