Save Your Household Energy Consumption with Asko Appliances

All of us who own appliances tend to make a note of the electricity consumed. Determining how much electricity your appliances and home electronics use helps you understand how much money you are spending to use them. Using the information below, you can estimate how much electricity an appliance is using and how much it costs you. With this calculation you can decide whether or not to invest in an energy-efficient appliance.

Before you make a purchase, the right way to go about things is to estimate the energy consumption and cost to operate an appliance. Try investing in an energy-efficient product which will save you money in the long run.

Let's calculate and compare the energy you are consuming on your present household appliances with Asko's energy-saving appliances.

Calculating Annual Electricity Consumption and Costs:
*  Estimate the number of hours per day an appliance runs.
*  Find the wattage of the product.
*  Find the daily energy consumption using the following formula:
(Wattage × Hours Used Per Day) ÷ 1000 = Daily Kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumption
*  Find the annual energy consumption using the following formula:
Daily kWh consumption × number of days used per year = annual energy consumption

*  Find the annual cost to run the appliance using the following formula:
Annual energy consumption × utility rate per kWh (Refer your appliance manual) = annual cost to run appliance

Now that you have calculated your present energy consumption, you can compare the same with Asko’s energy consumption charts to see how much money you can save. Before we go into those details, let’s see how Asko’s appliances help to reduce your energy consumption.

Make a Green Choice with Asko Appliances:
Asko markets unique HWC - Heating Water Circuit dishwashers, washers and dryers that are designed to be heated by an economic and environmentally-friendly source of heating water, like district heating, solar collector, or geothermal heating. These sources replace the use of electrical energy for your appliances, thereby significantly reducing your electrical energy consumption.

How do Asko’s HWC Dishwashers, Washers and Dryers Work?
Asko’s heating water connected appliances circulate the heated water through the heat exchanger, which in-turn is used to heat up the water used to perform your chores. This arrangement reduces the need to operate your appliances using the traditional electrical heating element, replacing a major requirement of the electrical energy consumption.

Components of Asko’s appliances which make them special:
1) Dishwasher:
  *  Heat exchanger
  *  Water valve
  *  New connections
  *  Updated software

2) Washers:
  *  Heat exchanger
  *  Circulation pump
  *  Water valve
  *  Heating valve
  *  Updated software

3) Dryers:
  *  Water-air heat exchanger
  *  Air channels
  *  Heating valve
  *  Air filter
  *  Updated software

The electrical heater available in the appliance is kept on standby to boost the system’s usage at high temperatures, and also as a back-up if you need to operate the machine without heating water. Now that you've calculated your present household energy consumption, use the information to compare it with Asko's electrical energy consumption below.
