Save money on your household bills this winter with Currys Go Greener range

For a limited time, get free delivery on select Go Greener appliances from Currys.

AS THE WINTER months set in, budgets are already feeling increasingly pinched.

Homeowners and renters alike are doing their research to find ways to save money on household bills. 

Household appliances are one area where many people can improve their energy usage, which will translate to lower energy costs. Whether that’s using your existing appliances more efficiently or investing in more energy efficient options, the savings will definitely add up. 

Upgrading to a more energy efficient appliance will save you more money over the long run. Currys, one of the most sustainable electrical retailers, will make that task easy with their Go Greener range. And, for a limited time, you can even get free delivery when you purchase select Go Greener appliance from Currys. 

Currys Go Greener appliance range offers a selection of appliance options that utilize green tech to drastically improve your energy usage and save you money. Here are just a few appliances from the Go Greener range:

Samsung Series 5+: This tumble dryer is wifi-enabled and powered by a heat pump, which is one of the green tech options that will really cut energy use. This dryer will save you up to €4,942 over the course of ten years.

Samsung 8 Series American-style smart fridge freezer: This black stainless steel option is 43% more efficient than an standard, F-rated model and will save you up to €1,195 over the course of ten years.

How to choose a new energy-efficient appliance

If you’re in a position to upgrade your washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, or cooker, you want to know what to look for. Here are a few tips on how to choose a more sustainable, energy efficient, and cost effective appliance. 

1. Utilize the quick-wash

Quick-wash programs wash clothes more quickly and use less energy. Machines with a full-load quick option, as opposed to just a small 1.5kg load option, will help you maximize energy.

2. Choose a dryer with a timer delay function

A timer delay option lets you do your washing or drying overnight when power is cheaper. Simply switch on your washing machine off before you go to bed.

3. Opt for sensor drying

Many energy efficient tumble dryers will come with automatic sensors that tell you when your clothes are properly dry. Not only will this save you energy and money on over-drying, but it will also help your clothes last longer. Additionally, some tumble dryers function with heat pumps, which can be more of an investment but often far less energy — up to 40% less than traditional dryers.

4. Choose the right drum size

If you’re going to be drying large loads regularly, a dryer with a large drying capacity (usually 8kg) will save energy rather than using a regular dryer to dry multiple small loads.
