What is applicable?
Why are energy ratings changing?
Prior to 2021 the products would have been rated between A for high efficiency, and an F for low efficiency. However, the rating system became complicated as more efficient models were introduced and rated A, A and A.
From March 2021, all new products brought to the market will now be rated using a simple A to G ranking system instead. All new products will show the relevant energy label on the website that will show what rating the product has been given. The label will also show a handy QR code that when scanned with a smartphone will give more additional product information (AKA product fiche). Product information sheets are also available on request, feel free to get in touch for more information.
Why do some products have two labels one for UK and one for EU?
This is simply because we (Studio or Ace) can sell this product in both the Mainland UK and Northern Ireland. For products that are not available for dispatch in Northern Ireland, they will only need to have the UK label shown.
The information on the labels is the same, the only difference being the flag logo in the top left-hand corner.
Why are some products still showing as A, A and A energy labels online?
There'll be some time where brands are still changing things over. Because of that, retailers can sell products that follow the old ratings until 1st December 2021.
Please note, some products that were manufactured before March 2021 are still in the transition period and energy labels and Product Information Sheets (Product Fiche) may not be available for these.
