** VDP: Variable Displacement Pump machine (most European machines after 1998)
*** FDP: Fixed Displacement Pump machine (most European machines pre- 1998)
* Extended hold on and cooling times will further improve the efficiency of the technology.

Please note that machines with only one hydraulic pump and mica (as opposed to Ceramic) heater bands will use slightly more energy.

WHEN CONSIDERING YOUR UNIT ENERGY COST (PRICE PER kWh), UNLESS YOU HAVE A LONG TERM FIXED PRICE CONTRACT, YOU MAY WISH TO ALLOW AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT FOR LIKELY FUTURE PRICE INCREASES. THIS WILL ALSO PROVIDE A MORE REALISTIC IDEA OF POTENTIAL FINANCIAL SAVINGS THAT EACH MACHINE TECHNOLOGY COULD OFFER.
WHEN CHECKING YOUR CURRENT ELECTRICITY BILL, DON’T FORGET TO INCLUDE THE CARBON TARIFF FIGURE, AS WELL AS AVERAGE OUT YOUR DAY AND NIGHT RATES IF YOU RUN SHIFTS.
