Low Energy Appliances

We keep our existing household appliances as long as possible, and choose to repair them if we can rather than throw them away and buy new ones.

However whenever you do replace household appliances check the EU Energy Label to get the best you can- most appliances, light bulbs & cars have to display one.

Kettle

Knock the switch to the left for hot, or to the right to boil.
Knock the switch to the left for hot, or to the right to boil.

As well as the usual boil setting our kettle has an lower temperature 80˚ setting, so it switches off earlier when you want water that’s hot but not boiling eg; for coffee, herbal teas etc.

And, of course, only fill your kettle with as little water as you require.
