Reduce Your Cost of Living This Season

With the rise in the cost of living, we know many of our customers are concerned about managing expenses as well as reducing their energy use. Whilst we can’t control the cost, we can suggest small changes you can make around the home to help reduce your bills.

Eco Programmes

Programmes on dishwashers and washing machines are generally a mix of time, water, and temperature. A combination of which is dependent on the one you choose. Eco modes are different. They use less water and a lower temperature than other settings. They generally take a lot longer too. This is because heating the water takes the most energy – up to 90% in fact in a washing machine. So, a longer cycle doesn’t need to be as hot, reducing your energy consumption.

Induction Technology

Cooking with an induction hob is quicker and more energy efficient than other hobs, here’s why. Heat is transferred directly to the pan rather than onto the glass cooking surface. This means that food is cooked quickly, without wasting any heat, making induction hobs a good choice for saving on your bills.


Blomberg’s VitaminCare+ technology harnesses the power of nature inside your fridge freezer. Using coloured LED lights, this feature simulates the sun’s natural 24-hour light cycle. Nutrients and vitamins are preserved in fruit and vegetables, keeping your food fresher for longer, and reducing waste.

Heat Pump Technology

If you are considering buying a new dryer, choosing a heat pump model is a great option when trying to reduce your bills. These dryers may seem like they take longer to dry the clothes, (which they often do) but their heat pump technology makes them more energy efficient.

Hot air absorbs moisture from your clothes to get them dry. The air then passes through an evaporator, removing the moisture which is stored in a tank. The remaining air is re-heated and re-circulated back into the drum to begin the process again.

We all love to dry our clothes outdoors, but when the British weather fails - make sure your dryer is an energy-efficient model. Airers are a good option too, for clothes not able to be tumble dried.
