    The importance of sustainable appliances in the rental market

    More and more people are thinking about how they can live in a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way. Whether it’s the food we eat or the brands we pick, it’s something that affects the buying habits of everyone. So, it should be no surprise that it’s a big talking point when it comes to rental properties. Over the past decade, minimum standards have been put in place to tighten the laws around energy efficiency in rental properties.

    Beko’s Head of Quality and Sustainability, Steve Clarke, has said “We understand that for landlords, having the ability to provide renters with energy efficient appliances and being able to save them money through rising energy prices is important. Including sustainable appliances in your property will increase its appeal for environmentally conscious renters, while also having a positive impact on the environment.”

    How do Beko help?

    Choosing sustainable appliances for your rental property

    Beko are constantly thinking about how they can be more sustainable. Over several years, they’ve been finding new ways to take care of the environment and build a more sustainable future. They’ve even received some awards for their efforts, so you know it’s paying off. They’ve made sure that their factories, products, people, and supply chains all play their part in protecting the future of the planet.

    Recycled materials

    Beko now has a range of appliances which are made with reused materials, to help reduce plastic pollution. Their range of RecycledTub® washing machines and washer dryers are the first appliances to be made from up to 60 recycled plastic bottles. These bottles are changed into durable, high-performance materials which are kinder to the planet without affecting the quality, performance, or efficiency of their appliances*. It’s a win-win.

    Innovative tech for energy efficiency

    It's not just the parts that are sustainable with Beko, though. Many of their products come with tech that’s designed to make life easier and more energy efficient. For example, Beko AquaTech® washing machines clean clothes 50% faster while still being gentle with every load. They use the power of the water instead of sharp drum movements, for a quicker and kinder wash that saves energy and money.

    On some models, you’ll find the SteamCure feature. This tech gives you the perfect clean in one go, so you can avoid double washing - saving energy, water, and detergent. By spreading steam in the drum at the beginning of the cycle, it easily loosens and lifts stubborn dirt. Then, at the end of the cycle, more steam is released to reduce creases - making ironing less of a faff.

    Warranty to give you peace of mind

    Freestanding Beko products come with a 1-year callout parts and labour guarantee. This is extended to 2 years for built-in products and is valid from the time the product is registered. Need to speak to an expert advisor? Beko make it easy with a fully trained service team that’s local to you for when you need some help.
