The energy label for tumble dryers

Wäschetrockner - Bild 1

This label provides information about the energy efficiency of the declared appliances. When we buy a new tumble dryer, it is not only the purchase price that counts, but also the associated long-term electricity costs. With this label it is possible to identify the most energy-efficient models at a glance.

In addition to energy consumption, the label also indicates the permissible load and drying method. Manufacturers may also choose to indicate the noise level of the appliance.

The information on the label is based on the “Cotton, cupboard dry” programme.
