Bosch Appliances Awarded Quiet Mark

Over 60 of Bosch home appliances have been awarded the Quiet Mark! This is a huge achievement
The Quiet Mark is a mark of excellence indicating that Bosch products have achieved significant sound reduction compared to other products in their class. This means you can enjoy peace and quiet in your home without having to worry about loud appliances disrupting your day-to-day activities.The Quiet Mark endorsed Bosch appliances include the Series 6 DWK97JQ60B cooker hood, which operates at 65dB (decibels), the Series 6 SMD6EDX57G dishwasher, which runs at 42dB, and the Series 4 WGG04409GB washing machine that spins at 71dB.

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.
