Impact of energy labelling on household appliances

Energy labelling has had an impact on the product development of household appliances. Today's appliances are energy-efficient and users are satisfied with them, however, the test methods applied to energy labelling do not always correspond to the actual use of the appliances tested. Although the current energy-labelling scheme focuses on saving energy, the appliances must also work properly. Energy labelling helps households to get appliances that save energy.
