Hotpoint has been recognised by Quiet Mark for a range of appliances within its portfolio, including dishwashers, fridge freezers and tumble dryers.
Quiet Mark encourages manufacturers to prioritise noise reduction within the design of appliances to benefit health and well-being. Quiet Mark assesses products and identifies the quietest in a given category,providing consumers a more informed choice about the products they buy.
With the size of the average home in the UK decreasing, appliance noises can get in the way of everyday life. In addition, in an open-plan living space, appliance noises can be distracting and stressful. Consumers have to compete with operational noises from the majority of household appliances including the compressor from the fridge, or the dishwasher’s cycle. As a result, they are driven to seek appliances that have a low noise level, to help create a more peaceful environment.
A total of eight Hotpoint dishwashers have recently been accredited by Quiet Mark, including full-sized and slimline models, as well as freestanding and fully-integrated options. The Hotpoint freestanding dishwasher (HFP 4O22 WG C X UK), for example, boasts a super silent 42 dB(A) noise level, which is classed as a ‘faint’ noise, likened to a ‘quiet room’ and is quieter than ‘moderate rainfall’.
Each of the Quiet Mark accredited dishwashers benefit from Hotpoint’s innovative inverter motor and thanks to its capacity to vary the velocity, the motor calibrates the water pressure and therefore the cleaning power, in combination with optimised electronic control at all times. Magnets allow the precise control of spray arms, directing the water at the right pressure, to the right spot and at the right time. The inverter motor leads to optimal energy efficiency, minimal vibration and therefore a low noise level.
