Energy rating labels

Pay attention to the labels or pay the price on your power bill!

Energy rating labels are an Australian Government requirement on new appliances, making it easy to compare running costs, which can exceed the purchase price in the long term.

The labels also contain the appliance’s average energy consumption, so that you can compare the efficiency of different models. Using the Energy Rating Calculator, you can also work out the running costs of appliances before deciding whether to buy.

Energy label stars

More stars, more savings

When comparing similar sized products look for more stars and save money.

Energy label score

Low score saves more

The lower the energy consumption score, the less electricity the appliance uses, and the cheaper it will be to run.
