Siemens Welcome EU Changes to Sale of Kitchen Appliances Thursday 5 March 2015 PDF Print The European Commission predicted that, on average, consumers would get an annual saving of €50 European legislation has outlawed energy wasting ovens and cooking hobs throughout all EU member states according to an article published on website Global Post. Lambert Welch Kitchens have commented on the changes. Household appliances will have to be more efficient in future with new regulations starting from February 20 in a bid to reduce greenhouse gas emissions along with fossil fuel imports. The European Commission predicted that, on average, consumers would get an annual saving of €50 for their energy bills as a result of more efficient equipment. Stamatis Sivitos, campaigner for the lobby group Coolproducts Campaign, supported the ruling: "These rules mean that design standards will go up, and low quality imports that cannot stand the heat will have to leave the kitchen." Bosch Siemens Haushaltsgeraete participated in consultations discussing the new rules and are satisfied with changes to ovens and hobs. It is thought that models which fall below a certain energy efficiency limit will be banned from being sold, according to the EU. The Commission said performances levels would be affected amid criticism about its effect on slow-cooked dinners such as stews. A spokesperson for Lambert Welch Kitchens, trade partners with Siemens and suppliers of kitchen appliances, released the following statement regarding the EU’s new regulations. They said: “We are in favour of the kitchen appliance changes because of the reduced levels of energy wasted from ovens. Most households will use hobs and ovens each day and it is amazing how inefficient some appliances are around the world". “Not only will this change reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but it shall benefit buyers in the short term. Our Siemens ovens are self-cleaning and of the highest energy efficiency which saves time, and perhaps more importantly, money without reducing the effectiveness of ovens – something we believe to be extremely important in this day and age.” Lambert Welch Kitchens have been a trusted trade partner with Siemens since 2007 and their experience in the market means they can provide customers with over 35 years’ worth of advice on kitchens and appliances.
