White good laws: New rules to make washing machines and fridges last longer and cut bills

“Going forward, our upcoming energy efficiency framework will push electrical products to use even less energy and material resources, saving people money on their bills and reducing carbon emissions as we work to reach net zero by 2050.”

This month, new labels have also been introduced which show customers how energy efficient a product is.

The scale will run from A to G, with most new products made expected to be classed as A+, A++ or A+++.

It will replace the old system and the current letters, meaning fewer appliances will be classified as ‘A’.
