The majority of people who purchase a quiet washing machine buy one for the reason you would expect – to reduce the amount of noise their washing machine emits. However, there is another important benefit to quiet washing machines that many people are not aware of. Quiet washing machines are actually more energy efficient.
Not only is this better for the planet, but it can also help you save money on your household bills. So what makes a quiet washing machine more energy efficient?
The main reason a quiet washing machine is more energy efficient is because of the type of motor it uses. Quiet washing machines use inverter motors. This is a type of motor that turns or rotates by magnetic induction. The reason this motor is used in a quiet machine is that they don’t make any contact or create any friction with any part of the washing machine. This results in less vibration and less noise.
However, inverter motors are also more energy-efficient. They provide maximum power with less electricity consumption. As the motors are more efficient, less energy is used – which could result in a reduction in your household bills.
Inverter motors are also more expensive to manufacture and are usually made from higher-quality materials. This can make them more reliable and durable, giving them a longer lifespan and meaning they will need to be replaced less quickly.
You can also buy a quiet washing machine from Ebac that is cold-filling. This is also more energy-efficient and can save you an additional 10% on your electricity bill. For those who are concerned about their carbon footprint and the negative impact they may be having on the environment, Ebac promises low CO2 emissions by making 87% of their washing machine components in the UK.
