New Appliances Can Save You Money
I know you will all say "of course it will" but here is my real world experience.
For the past few years my average daily consumption has been 8.5 to 9.5 kWh, pretty consistent all year round with the Christmas decorations pushing December to around 10 kWh.
Late April the washing machine decided it was unhappy so time for a new one. My April average was 8.3 kWh with only using the new machine for a week, pretty much an all time low. May average, using the machine for a whole month, went down to 8.1 kWh.
Near the end of June the 140 litre upright freezer decided to die. We bought an emergency 100 litre chest freezer and with only one week of use the June average was down to 8.0 kWh. The new replacement 270 litre upright freezer arrived 1st July and so far this month the daily average is down to 7.2 kWh.
No lifestyle changes have happened, just the new appliances are using less energy and am looking at around a 15% reduction just with these 2 new items.
