The procedure for choosing a washing machine causes difficulties for ordinary consumers. To buy an effective device without overpaying, it is necessary to be well-versed in the technical characteristics of the unit. Today we will talk about the classes of washing machines, there are quite a few, and they are used to denote completely different aspects of work. Having carefully analyzed the value of each specification, the potential buyer will be able to understand which factor is of paramount importance, and what can be neglected.
Washing class of washing machines
The basic classification was approved back in 1995 and that time has not changed. All washing machines are divided into 6 classes, which are denoted by Latin letters from A to G. All this reminds something of a washing powder advertisement. A piece of fabric of a regulated size is loaded into the machine. This piece of fabric is pre-soiled. The washing cycle is activated at a temperature of 90 degrees. The duration is 1 hour.
Each class determines the result compared to the benchmark. The reference device was released back in 1995. It shows not the best, but a stable result. Models A erases better than the benchmark, and B is at its level. This is the logic behind the classification of machines. Visually, the A-class washing machines practically do not differ from the representatives of the B-group. Therefore, the potential buyer is difficulty making the right choice. Objectively evaluating which model is better.
The quality of washing is revealed over time. Do not forget that modern devices are compared to a unit that was produced almost 25 years ago. Naturally, during this time, technological progress has said its weighty word. The requirements for washing have seriously changed. In today’s market, there are mostly class-A models. Representatives of group B are extremely rare. Therefore, this parameter will not have a serious impact on the choice. All modern machines wash at approximately the same level.
Energy class of the washing machine
The main certification center in Europe has developed uniform standards of energy consumption for all household appliances. Each level of electricity consumption is assigned a certain class. Washing machines are denoted by Latin letters from A to G. With the help of these symbols, the potential buyer can easily determine the most economical device.
Over time, manufacturers have raised the bar and begun to produce appliances with energy classes: A+, A++, and A+++. Economical energy consumption is not yet a guarantee of a budget boost. It all depends on the specifics of using the appliance. For example, a refrigerator works around the clock, so it is better to overpay and buy the most economical model so as not to overpay for electricity.
Washing machines often run for a few hours a week. Therefore, the A+++ model will cost significantly more than the A, but will not provide significant savings. If you do your laundry much more often, it makes sense to overpay for a machine with minimal energy consumption.
