As we become more aware of looking after our mental health and well-being, many people are looking for simple changes they can make to look after their physical and mental health.
Experts have long warned about the impact consistent exposure to loud sounds can have on our health. Impacts on our health can include hypertension and elevated stress levels. A correlation has also been found between loud noises and a person’s mood and concentration.
With many washing machines emitting sound between 70 and 80 decibels, and some even higher, it’s easy to see why changing to a quieter washing machine could be beneficial.
A background that is free from noise has been found to be more conducive to productive work time and quality downtime. With many people now working from home, or working long hours in the office, having a home environment that is not affected by loud electronic appliances can be beneficial to both your mental and physical health.
You have no control over the amount of loud noise you are exposed to out of your home, but you can make your home environment quieter.
Choosing a quieter washing machine has become a no-brainer for many people.
As well as choosing a machine that emits less sound overall, you could also opt for a machine, like the Ebac quiet washing machine, that has a quiet mode. This programme means your washing machine will pause before the spin cycle begins. The spin cycle is typically 10 to 15 decibels louder than the wash cycle. If you ever need complete quiet in your home, the Ebac machine with quiet mode gives you the flexibility to only have the noisier part of the wash happen when you say so.
