We’re all feeling the pinch right now, but there are some things you can do to save money in the long run. In the world of consumer technology, that includes upgrading your appliances to those which are more energy efficient.

The old adage ‘you have to spend money to make money’ is the thinking here – while there is an initial outlay, the savings you enjoy could make the difference in the long run. At John Lewis, there’s a wide range of energy efficient appliances on offer, which can help you to do just that. Everything from trendy Air Fryers to humble lightbulbs are included, giving you a host of different options for boosting energy efficiency in your home. They’ve even put together this handy guide, so you know what to keep an eye out for when making a purchase.

When you buy from John Lewis, you’ll get a host of options to make life easier for you. Interest free credit is available on selected items, enabling you to spread the cost of a bigger purchase. There’s also free next day click and collect, and free delivery on large electrical products, saving you the hassle of transporting it home. Plus, with a minimum two-year guarantee on all electrical goods, you can be safe in the knowledge that your new purchase is protected.

The Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer is a brilliant option for the kitchen. You get two separate zones for cooking, and they can even be synchronised so that everything is ready at the same time! No more faffing around with multiple timers to get a meal together at the right moment.

They also use less energy than a traditional oven. Ninja claim you can save up to 75% on your energy bill by switching over. Cooking times are also decreased as air fryers don’t need to be pre-heated, meaning you run the appliance for less time and waste less energy.

If you need to make a bigger change in your kitchen, a new washing machine can make a world of difference – particularly if your old one isn’t very efficient. The Samsung Series 5 Washing Machine is a great pick here. It’s rated A for energy efficiency, and has a wealth of features designed to make it easier to wash your clothes at lower temperatures.

The ecobubble technology mixes air, water and detergent to create bubbles, which allow you to get great results on a cooler wash. There’s also a steam cleaning function, which removes 99.9% of bacteria. This particular model features an extra three year guarantee on top of the two provided as standard.

Plus, until the 9th of May, there’s free recycling on hundreds of large electrical appliances. That means if you buy a new washing machine, John Lewis can take away your old one and recycle every part of it, ensuring nothing goes to landfill. That’s a great incentive – not just good for your wallet, good for the planet, too.

When it comes to drying our clothes, most of us turn to a tumble dryer, a radiator, or the good old British weather. But if you want an efficient solution which won’t break the bank with energy costs, a heated clothes airer is a great option.

These use electricity to heat the bars to between 40 and 50 degrees, allowing you to dry your clothes in an efficient manner, without taking up radiator space. This John Lewis model can fit up to 5kg per shelf, too – perfect for getting those larger laundry hauls done in one go. John Lewis says it only costs pennies per hour to run, too, making it just as easy on your favourite t-shirt as your wallet.
