How to Save on Energy Efficient Appliances

It is definitely an excellent idea to have energy efficient appliances in your French property to help reduce the negative impact of excess energy usage common to older appliances.

The way to find the efficiency of a new appliance is to look for the ‘Energie’ logo – see the sample image at the top of this article.

The biggest challenge for many people is the cost of new appliances so they keep the old energy burners.

A simple solution is to look for the new energy efficient appliance you wish for and then search for it online at a reliable service that sells used appliances. This may sound obvious but many people do not think of buying a used appliance, however, if you do, you can save substantially on the price since it is difficult to sell a used appliance even if it is almost new.  You can take advantage of the depreciation the current owner will have experienced since the current owner bought new.

In addition you will have taken a positive step for our planet since you will be buying and re-using an energy efficient appliance that someone may have just decided to leave in their garage.

Note: Make sure the used appliance you are buying is functioning correctly.

Please share this idea with friends and please let us know your ideas.
