Tips & Technology
Whether you want to reduce your energy bills, help protect the environment or both,
energy and water efficient machines from Hoover are a wise-buy. All of our energy
and water efficient machines feature the latest technology, so you can be sure that
as well as getting lower energy and water consumption, you're getting the best all-round
Why is energy and water
Energy and water efficiency is important because with rising utility costs, an energy
efficient machine can not only reduce your energy bills, but save as many as 3,000
litres of water a year. It's also good to know that Hoover's energy and water efficient
machines help reduce and limit your carbon footprint, which is better for the environment.
washer dryers are rated A-G in the following areas:
- Energy efficiency
- Wash performance
- Spin drying performance
Tumble dryers are graded A-G on energy efficiency only.
A-rating indicates the best energy efficiency while ‘G’ indicates extremely poor
energy efficiency. The ‘A’ rating can also be further broken down, with superior
energy efficient washing machines receiving an ‘AAA’ rating – that's A for energy
efficiency, A for wash performance and A for spin drying performance.

Energy and water saving tips
- Buy an energy and water efficient washing machine recommended by the Energy Saving
Trust – a guarantee that you'll save energy.
- Wash at 30°C instead of 40°C and you'll use up to 40% less energy.
- Wash/dry a full load so you limit the number of cycles you do.
- Buy a washing machine with auto load control, which will automatically adjust the
water and electricity consumption according to the weight of the load. All
Hoover washing machines feature auto load control
referred to as KG mode.
- When the weather is good, hang your clothes outside to dry.
- If you tumble dry your clothes, use a washing machine which is A-rated for spin
performance, such as Hoover's Dynamic range. The faster the spin the better because
every 200 rpm increase in spin speed will reduce drying time by 10 minutes. This
in turn will reduce energy consumption and even half tumble drying costs in comparison
to a G-rated machine.
- If you can match the load capacity of your tumble dryer to the load capacity of
your washing machine you won't have to dry one load of washing in two loads.
