TVs seem to have come on a lot, for example  the LG 42LX6900 42-inch Widescreen LED 3D Internet TV with Freeview HD claims to only use 105 watts and .2 watts on standby.  My AOC 42" which is just three years old uses 300 watts.  It means about 150 euro extra cost per annum.

i was surprised when i looked at our 15 year old colour 26" TV it uses about 60-70 watts when on, standby what's that it's switch off angel
OK we need a digibox, when it dies i will look at a widecreen TV until then no need to change it.

http://www.idealo.co.uk/cat/2620/freezers.html also - for example - lets you search by 'annual energy consumption', which is useful.

It's important to compare like with like though.

If you're doing lots of washing, the machine that uses 2kWh/cycle may be better than the one that uses 1.5kWh/cycle, if you need to run the second twice.

Same with hoovers - if one lets you hoover lots more effectively than the other, but uses more power...

Just had to buy a new washing machine as my 10 year old AEG packed in over Xmas, so I used that comparison site to discover the Panasonic NA148VG4, which claims to be an A+++ rated appliance with an 8Kg load. Got it being delivered this afternoon so we'll see how it does, but either way I'm sure it'll be far more efficient than the machine that it is replacing.

This posting encouraged me to look again at washing machines, and they seem to have moved on somewhat since I l last looked. Only 660w per cycle! Wow. Might be time to change, but as we have a weedy supply cable which I am carefully looking after, would an induction motor pull more juice to start than the old brushed type?

Ran my new Panasonic machine last night. Unbelievably quiet! Let's hope the energy savings match the claims, and that it can actually wash clothes!
