Smarter Choice: Choosing energy efficient appliances
Energy efficient appliances will save you money over the lifetime of the appliance compared to standard models. The Smarter Choice Retail Program makes it easier for you to make smart choices when buying new appliances, hardware and lighting.
Whether you're in the market for lighting, appliances or hardware, the program has information available in over 400 partnering stores to help you compare the running costs and environmental performance of the products you're looking to buy.
You can also get the best advice on how to correctly dispose of your old appliances; saving you money, and Victoria's valuable energy and water resources.
Save on household bills
Buying more energy and water efficient appliances will help reduce your household bills as well as help the environment.
Compare models with the same star rating by using the numbers on the water and energy efficiency rating labels. You can save money off the running costs with every extra star:
- 30% on dishwashers
- 25% on washing machines and dryers
- 20% on TVs and fridges.
Getting advice on the best appliances has now become much easier with the Smarter Choice Retail Program. Each partnering store has trained retail sales staff that can advise you about the water and energy efficiency of the appliances available in store.
The Smarter Choices Retail Program provides partnering stores with information to help you compare the running costs, environmental performance and show you how to maximise efficiency in your home in relation to a range of products and activities such as:
|Fridges and freezers||Cooling|
