Energy Star and Best Buy Celebrate Earth Day


Best Buy is at it again with the latest in energy and water efficient appliances from entry-level to premium to help families save time and money. With a family of 6, this is very exciting for me!

First, the ENERGY STAR certified Washers*. These effiecient certified washers use less energy, on average about 280 KWh of electricity and which can save you about $40 a year on your utility bills compared to other standard models. It also uses less water. A full-sized ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer uses 13 gallons of water per load, compared to the 23 gallons with other standard machines. That’s a savings of more than 3,000 gallons of water every year. You can do a lot with this money you save!

Is your washer over 10 years old? Did you know that washers built before 2003 are significantly less efficient than more recent models. If you do have a standard clothes washer that’s over 10 years old, you’re actaully paying an average $180 a year because of the power and energy consumption by these machines.

Now with the ENERGY STAR certified Dryers*, you’re also benefiting significantly from it’s efficiency. These dryers use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without losing the quality of it’s performance.
How? Rather than using times drying, ENERGY STAR certified Dryers* uses Sensor Drying. By incorporate advanced moisture sensors to help you reduce your dryer’s energy use, your dryer will automatically shut off when clothes are dry. Pretty neat huh?!

Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting also use less energy. When you purchase an ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryer, look in the informational materials shipped with the product for which cycle was tested for certification and how the dryer’s other cycles or settings may use more or less energy.

Another way you save is the option of using gas. Eighty percent of dryers in the US are electric. If you have the option, this can also save you money and reduce your impact your appliances have on the environment.
