Laundry Made Better with Energy Star Appliances

  Things can get busy and crazy around here. So I have taught my boys how to help out around the house. My boys are learning so much. They already help with the trash, unloading the dishwasher, and folding the clothes. The chore that they are learning right now is how to wash clothes. I am showing them how to properly load the washing machine and how much detergent to use. The most important thing that I am teaching the boys to always use the "color" button on the machine. This button/setting washes the clothes in cold water and is best for the environment. It also saves me money. When I selected my washer and dryer, I made sure they were ENERGY STAR® certified.

Why did I select an ENERGY STAR certified washer and dryer?
ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers and dryers save energy, which means that I will save on my energy bills. Many are also equipped with advanced features that make cleaning and drying easier and more effective.

There are many other features that I like about ENERGY STAR washer and dryers. They are better for the environment which means that I am protecting the climate, leaving it a better place for my kids. ENERGY STAR is also better for my clothes too. The washers are gentler on my clothes and the dryers use less heat and have sensors that reduce wear and tear on my clothes as it prevents over-drying.

    Did you know that you can save $490 over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and even more with an ENERGY STAR washer/dryer pair?



I love saving money and love that my ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and dryer are 25% and 20% more efficient, respectively, than other standard models. My washing machine uses approximately 45% less water than other standard models that I looked at in the store. That can amount to 33,000 gallons of water that I can save during the washers lifetime use!

I was happy that I had options when I purchased my washer. There were many models to choose from and I was able to select a top or front loading washing. Look at all these cool features that ENERGY STAR washers have:

 Sophisticated wash systems– ENERGY STAR certified top-load machines clean your clothing just like standard models without wasting water to fill up the tub. Instead, these machines use sophisticated wash systems to cycle clothes through a mixture of water and detergent, allowing the clothes to be cleaned without using excess water or detergent.

 No central agitator– Front-load machines tumble clothes through a small amount of water instead of rubbing clothes against an agitator, while advanced top-load machines lift and tumble clothes through a reduced stream of water. Both designs dramatically reduce the amount of hot water and energy used in the wash cycle.

 High spin speeds– Efficient motors spin clothes two to three times faster to extract more water. Less moisture in the clothes means less time in the dryer and less energy spent drying clothes.


o   Long live your clothes– Front-load and advanced top-load clothes washers’ sophisticated wash systems use a variety of methods to lift and tumble your laundry, lengthening the life of often-washed items. Additionally, because they are so gentle, many models can safely clean silk, wool, and other hand-washables.



If all clothes dryers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $1.5 billion each year and 22 billion pounds of annual carbon pollution would be prevented. This is equal to the emissions from 2 million vehicles.

Saving money and saving the environment are great reasons why I choose an ENERGY STAR clothes dryers but I also liked the following advanced features:

o   Low Heat Setting– Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting use less energy. When you purchase an ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryer, look for the cycle that uses the least amount of energy, sometimes known as the “energy-saving” selection.

 Steam Cycles– Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as a steam cycle that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.
