Very hard to use filtering on phone
Need to be able to input data as it is very hard to use the filters in its current format. For example I couldn't get 3kw to select for air conditioning power as the control is clunky. Allow the option to input a value as well.
Great App, easy to use, accurate!!
This is an easy to use app to help you find what appliance is using the most electricity in your home. You can simply enter the model number into the search bar and it will tell you how much it will cost per year to run.
It even has an initial cost section so if you are comparing a few models to buy then it will give you the total cost of ownership over so many years, helps you make a better informed choice.
One thing I would really like to see is a basic calculator based on an appliance’s wattage and usage to help people better understand smaller appliances such as heaters and pumps and light fittings. I’d really like to see that in the next update please!!!
