Teka manufactures all its products with 100% renewable energy in Spain

Since 2020, the entire manufacturing process of Teka products at the Zaragoza and Santander plants is carried out with 100% renewable energy. Likewise, Teka’s offices and warehouses in Spain also use green energy. Thanks to this initiative, the supply consumed avoids the emission of CO 2 (TCO 2 eq) into the atmosphere due to power generation.

Teka’s environmental commitment focuses on the correct management of all processes, from the manufacture of its products to the optimization of resources and waste. In this way, a more sustainable product is offered without losing its quality and essence.

Teka and the planet

Teka has been working for years on the transformation of the sector, introducing sustainability criteria in the design and production of its electrical appliances. For this reason, the ISO 14001 certification endorses and recognizes Teka’s responsibility with the planet.

This is demonstrated by the company’s CSR policy, which follows three clear lines of action. On the one hand, the use of recycled materials when manufacturing its electrical appliances, while introducing recycled glass in its production process. The second pillar is the reuse of plastic: Teka washing machines, dishwashers and refrigerators are made with reused plastic waste that has been transformed to partially incorporate the plastic-based components of these products, consequently reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. during the manufacturing process. Finally, it is worth noting the German brand’s commitment to durability. Teka has had products with the LifeTime Warranty seal for years,

A-Class appliances: what it means.

Starting from March 2021, the new energy label has come into force, and it is mandatory on a wide range of appliances. The EU has established a standard applicable to all appliances to facilitate their comparison.
Thanks to the new classification based on a colour scale, you can identify those with the higher consumption levels (Class G) in red, and those with the lower consumption levels in dark green. By eliminating all “+”, the label has become more understandable, and the appliance classification has become stricter.

How much class A appliances consume and why they are more convenient
In order to understand the convenience of class A appliances, here is the average consumption of the most energy-intensive appliances:

A class A refrigerator with freezer consumes approximately 100 kWh per year, while a class G model consumes almost three times as much.
A class A washer that does 100 full-load washing cycles with the Eco 40-60° program consumes approximately 50 kWh per year, half of a class G model.
The air conditioning unit’s consumption is calculated also based on the SEER, which indicates the seasonal energy efficiency in cooling mode: the higher it is, the higher the appliance’s energy savings. On average, in class A, the SEER is around 8, and the annual energy consumption for cooling is around 100 kWh; while in lower classes, with a lower SEER, consumption can exceed 300 kWh per year.
