AGA Running Costs

It used to be a given that the AGA cooker was on all the time. Not so now with the introduction of new AGA models that have been built with 21st century lifestyles in mind – the AGA 60 , AGA 3 Series,  AGA Total Control and AGA Dual Control . It’s the controllable features on these four innovative models that allow the owner to have much more control over their AGA cooker’s energy consumption.

Below are the running costs of our most popular models, including the traditional AGA cooker that is available for use 24/7.

 

NEW AGA MODELS

All of our new generation of AGA cookers are designed to conserve energy, they have much more control and allow individual operation of ovens and hotplates. These new AGA cookers consume less energy compared to other heat-storage radiant heat range cookers. The patented hotplates are designed to heat up within 10 to 12 minutes, we therefore reccommend that there is no need to leave the hotplates on 24/7, they will heat up very quickly when required everyday.
