8. Dish washer

Energy saving label Modern dishwashers can be more energy
efficient than washing by hand as all the dishes are
washed at once, so only one lot of water is heated.

Old electrical appliances generally use a lot of power,
but modern designs use much less. Every household
appliance has an energy rating from A to G, where A
is good and G is poor.

Collecting the raw materials and making the
new appliance can take a lot of energy,
so appliances should be built to last a long time.
