Eco-labels give energy classes ranging from A+++ to G to everyday goods, with the aim of encouraging consumers to buy more environmentally friendly products and reducing overall energy consumption.
A+++ to C
A+++ to A+
A++ to A+
A+++ to A
A++ to E
TelevisionWhat does the television label tell us?
1A++ to C, energy classes available on the market
2Power consumption in “off” mode (<0.01W)
3Power consumption in “on” mode
4Annual consumption (4 hours/day, 365 days/year)
5Diagonal measurement of the visible screen (in centimeters and inches)
Did you know?A television consumes electricity even in "standby" mode.
Fridge freezerWhat does the fridge-freezer label tell us?
1A+ to A+++, energy classes available on the market
3Refrigerator volume (in liters)
4Freezer volume (in liters)
5Noise level (in decibels)
Heat pumpThe label shown is for a heat pump used in domestic heating and hot water production systems.
1A+ to A++, energy classes available on the market for heating
2B to A, for hot water
3Noise level (in decibels) for interior and exterior units
4“Off-peak period” mode
5Annual electricity consumption of interior and exterior units for each of the 3 climate zones in Europe
Did you know?The noise level of heat pumps varies from 45 to 65 decibels (dB). By law, the maximum noise level from the inside of a dwelling is 25 dB.
- A peaceful garden: 20 dB
- A noisy classroom: 70 dB
- A rock concert: 110 dB
- An airplane taking off 100 m away: 130 dB
DishwasherOn average, dishwashers rated A+++ consume 40% less than their A-rated counterparts.

2Annual consumption for 280 wash cycles
3Water consumption for 280 wash cycles
4Drying efficiency, from A to G
5Capacity in number of place settings
6Noise level (in decibels)
Did you know?On average, dishwashers consume 12 liters of water per wash cycle, while washing up by hand requires an average of 42 liters of water for the same quantity of dishes.
Light bulbA number of criteria should be taken into account when choosing a light bulb. Their labels contain lots of interesting information.
1A, A+, A++: LED
A, B, C: Fluorescent bulbs
D, E: Halogen bulbs
2Annual consumption for 1,000 hours
3Power (in W)
4Incandescent bulb equivalent
5Light output (in lumens)
6Colour temperature (in kelvins) (yellow = warm light, blue = cool light)
7Lifespan (in hours)
8Number of switch cycles
9Warm-up time (to 60% of the bulb’s light output)
10Dimensions and type of fitting (screw or bayonet)?
11Possibility of connecting the bulb to a dimmer
12Amount of mercury for compact fluorescent bulbs
