Looking for the ENERGY STAR® on a new clothes washer saves both energy and water, and can even help your clothing last longer — all great ways to save money. You can even save enough money on your utility bills by operating an ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washer that your savings will pay for the matching dryer!
Purchasing an ENERGY STAR qualified model rather than a non-qualified model will save you an average of $50 a year on your utility bills. By using less energy, these models also help prevent climate change, since they require less electricity to be made at power plants. Also, by reducing water consumption, ENERGY STAR qualified washers help protect our lakes, streams, and oceans.
You don’t need to miss out on great features to capture these benefits, either. New ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers use advanced technology to reduce the amount of water and energy used each time you wash a load of clothing. If you buy a non-qualified clothes washer, you’ll use 18 more gallons of water every time you wash a load — that’s enough water to take a shower.
