Purchasing guidelines for domestic white goods
It’s easy to choose energy efficient domestic white goods because you can look for the EU’s energy label. You can save several hundred Danish kroner per appliance per year by choosing energy efficiently.

Good advice on purchasing and operating equipment
- Try to choose large appliances that meet rather than exceed your needs.
- Some large appliances have standby consumption which is not factored into the energy label. Get information on how much this is and choose types with low standby consumption.
- Consider a natural gas powered tumble dryer if natural gas is available.
- See product overviews of large domestic appliances and find the lowest price
- Read information from the Danish Energy Agency about the EU energy labelling scheme (in Danish).
