The energy labeling of household appliances is not always respected

From Saturday September 26, boilers and water heaters will be subject to ecological labeling. Five years ago, the device had already been applied for household appliances. However, some stores forget to display this label in color. A survey by “UFC-Que Choisir” reveals that the display is absent or non-compliant in 56% of cases.

Caution before purchasing

“It is important that this is indicated”, testifies a consumer at the microphone of France 2. Stores specializing in household appliances do a little better than mass distribution, but on online sales sites, the display is faulty in 9 cases out of 10. The energy label and the product sheets are required to help consumers make their choice. The risk is to buy a device that consumes a lot. Better to keep an eye out before buying.
