Ban the sale of hot water domestic appliances that only have a cold water connection

Comment 9th May 2015

There are many washing machines and dishwashers on sale that only have a clod water connection. These devices have no option but to use electricity to produce hot water. The electricity consumed may have been generated from 4 units of gas, making a considerable contribution to carbon emissions.

If these devices had hot water connections they could have generated the same heat from only 1 unit of gas or benefited from renewable heat.

Gas is also 1/4 the price of electricity unit for unit reducing the end users costs.

Why does this matter?

  • To reduce carbon emissions
  • To reduce pollution
  • To reduce our reliance on imported carbon fuels
  • To reduce end user costs
