V-ZUG: EcoManagement: a decision to help the environment

EcoManagement – Taking responsibility at home
V-ZUG raises awareness and motivates users to make their households more environmentally-friendly on a day-to-day basis. V-ZUG's EcoManagement solution comprises a range of functions that enable you to check your appliances' water and electricity consumption straight away so that you can select the most economical programmes. Washing machines and dryers, for instance, can show you the projected energy and water consumption for a specific programme and then inform you about actual consumption levels after the end of the programme. You can also actively influence how much your appliances consume: washing machines and tumble dryers come with an Eco button that can be selected with each programme – the programme then runs for slightly longer but consumes less energy. Appliances that support EcoManagement functions are the ideal companions for a modern, resource-efficient lifestyle.

EcoManagement: even more economical on request 
V-ZUG's EcoManagement function enables you to display how much energy and water your washing machine uses, as well as the projected consumption before you start a wash: with the Eco button, which can be selected with each programme, the programme will run for slightly longer but consumes less energy. With the Adora V6000 washing machine, you can even choose from a number of EcoHybrid settings depending on how much time you have. The highest EcoHybrid setting helps you to achieve record energy efficiency: you save up to 55 % more energy than a conventional washing machine. 

Eco – Resource-efficient washing
The Eco button enables you to choose the most energy-efficient method for washing your fabrics. The programme may take a little longer, but it washes your fabrics in an even more resource-efficient manner.

The various EcoHybrid stages
The Adora V6000 adapts itself to your wishes in terms of energy saving. The chart explains the various EcoHybrid stages using a 60°C programme.


OptiTime – the intelligent delayed start function
The OptiTime delayed start function is part of V-ZUG’s EcoManagement solution and is a feature in Adora washing machines and dryers worldwide. How does OptiTime work?: Place your laundry in the drum, select your desired washing programme and the OptiTime delayed start option along with your desired programme end time. A conventional delayed start function does not start the programme until absolutely necessary to make sure your washing is finished on time. OptiTime on the other hand starts the programme earlier and uses the time available to make sure your wash is longer and more environmentally friendly. By extending running with OptiTime, you achieve exactly the same result as a normal washing programme.
