How ENERGY STAR Appliances Make Laundry Better

This is a sponsored post.

Most people look at laundry as one of those chores they hate to do. Unfortunately, short of paying someone else to do it for you, there is no getting around the need to do your laundry. ENERGY STAR®-certified washers and dryers may not make doing laundry more fun, but they do make laundry better.

Engergy Star Laundry

Using ENERGY STAR appliances offers advantages in multiple areas. For one thing, these washers and dryers are tough on dirt but easy on fabric, so your clothes will last longer. Perhaps even more importantly, appliances that carry the ENERGY STAR seal are guaranteed to be energy efficient, so they are easy on the environment, too.

Save Money with ENERGY STAR

You will save money in the long run when you invest in these appliances. Clothes washers with this seal use about 45% less water and 25% less energy than traditional machines. That translates to a $45 per year savings.

Clothes dryers in this category use 80% of the amount of energy used by standard models. Many of these units feature longer cycles, use low heat and require less energy.

Protect Your Clothes with ENERGY STAR

Clothes washed in ENERGY STAR appliances have a longer lifespan. These machines gently agitate, lift and tumble clothes instead of pulling, stretching and twisting. You can even wash your finest delicates in these washers without worrying about them falling apart.

The dryers feature sensor drying technology that require less heat and is easier on fabric. Some dryers even offer a steam cycle eliminating the need to iron fabrics that wrinkle easily.

Help  the Environment with ENERGY STAR

Energy experts estimate that if every household in the United States switched to ENERGY STAR washers and dryers, the nation would save more than $15 billion in energy costs and eliminate approximately 22 billion pounds of pollution caused by carbon.

Switching over to ENERGY STAR laundry cleaning equipment is an effective way to conserve energy, extend the life cycle of your clothes and do your part to make the world a better place.
