Dishwashers and Appliance Repairs

Which Free-Standing Dishwasher Is Uses Less Energy?

 

You can find a dishwasher in most homes these days. The convenience of hiding away dirty dishes makes them one of the most popular home appliances in New Zealand. But convenience isn’t the only factor when it comes to deciding on a dishwasher.

 

Obviously there is the choice of whether you want a built-in machine or a free-standing one. But then you need to think about the energy-efficiency and annual running costs.

 

Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) has run some tests to see which domestic appliances perform better and which ones you need to think carefully about. It is not always about the brand either since some brands can have great performance and poor performance so you need to consider each model on its own merits.

 

Below we summarise the key models from their tests.
