Air-conditioners, refrigerators and clothes dryers are among the most energy-intensive home appliances. Save on your electricity bill when you buy these appliances!
While energy efficient models may have higher purchase price than less efficient ones, they tend to have lower life cycle costs due to the lower electricity costs over their lifespan. The electricity cost over the lifespan of an appliance could be several times the purchase price of the appliance. This Life Cycle Cost Calculator helps you make informed purchasing decisions by calculating the life cycle costs (purchase price + energy costs over its lifespan) of different models of air-conditioners, refrigerators and clothes dryers.
From 1 September 2014, air-conditioners, refrigerators and clothes dryers will carry a new energy label. The rating system has also been re-scaled. Air-conditioners, refrigerators and clothes dryers will be re-rated from 1- to 5-ticks under the new rating system. The new rating system will be integrated into this Life Cycle Cost Calculator in a few months. In the meantime, you may perform life cycle cost calculations for 5-ticks appliances by searching for the relevant model using the “Search by Model Number” function.
