Singapore’s lack of natural resources makes saving water and energy commonplace and consumers are very aware of the importance of investing in energy-efficient products that ensures minimal resource usage, thereby lower utility bills.
To help consumers distinguish energy-efficient appliances from their less efficient competitors at the point of sale, Bosch washers, dryers and fridges are labeled under a number of government schemes in Singapore that monitor water and energy efficiency. For example, the Water Efficiency Labeling Scheme (WELS), is a voluntary scheme administered by the Public Utilities Board (PUB). The label provides product information and indicates water efficiency in terms of ticks – the more ticks awarded, the more water efficient the appliance.
Another scheme – the Mandatory Energy Labeling Scheme (MELS) – rates refrigerators and dryers according to their efficiency ratings, the more ticks awarded, the more energy efficient the appliance.
All Bosch washers and dryers have been awarded by a minimum of 3 ticks (✔✔✔) by NEA and PUB. This means consumers can potentially save up to 30% on utility bills. Bosch dryers have been rated as Singapore’s most efficient set the standard in energy efficiency by the NEA and have also been awarded a minimum of 3 ticks (✔✔✔) by the National Environment Agency.
