None of us like to think about doing the laundry or at least I don’t. It is one of those life things that you can’t really escape but don’t really want to think about. I mean I guess you could escape doing laundry but I don’t know how that would go over time. You might get a bit ripe or it might get super expensive to have your laundry done for you. One of the ways you can make laundry a little better is by making sure you have a ENERGY STAR laundry system.
Best Buy is committed to positively impacting the environment and offering ENERGY STAR Laundry systems that not only keep our clothes sparkling clean but they also help protect the environment and our pocket books. Check out the Best Buy blog to learn more!
Using ENERGY STAR Laundry Systems saves you money each month in your utility bill which means you can enjoy an extra chai tea or have more in savings.
In researching this post I learned quite a bit about ENERGY STAR Laundry Systems and Best Buys commitment to the environment. Check this out!
ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers and dryers are 25% and 20% more efficient, respectively, than standard models.
Save $490 over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and even more with an ENERGY STAR washer/dryer pair.
Over the lifetime of the product, an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer saves:
o 1,100 kWh and more than 2.5 million BTUs of natural gas,
o 33,000 gallons of water,
o $490 over the product’s lifetime.
If all clothes washers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, we would save more than $4 billion each year and prevent more than 19 billion pounds of carbon pollution annually. This is equal to the emissions from 1.7 million vehicles.
How amazing is that! Plus there is more! Check this out!
Clothes dryers that have earned the ENERGY STAR use approximately 20% less energy than standard models.
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.
ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryers incorporate the following advanced features:
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.
Yes you read that right! If all washer and dryers were ENERGY STAR certified we could save a combined 5.5 billion dollars a year in energy costs!
Can you imagine the good that could be done with $5.5 billion dollars!
