The old energy labels were created in 2012. These run from class A+++ to D. Nowadays, new and energy-efficient technologies have made many products more energy-efficient than the A+++ class. That's why the European Union has introduced new energy labels since 1 March 2021. In the time before that date, you also received the old energy label with your new purchase.

Something you'll notice right away about the new energy label is the layout. The icons are different and the noise level is indicated in classes. There's a QR code at the top right.
