There are seven people in our home, plus a dog.  We have so much laundry.  So. Much. Laundry.  We do at least one load a day and often more.  I worry sometimes about what our energy bill will be, especially in the winter when we have all those snow pants and gloves and hats to wash and dry.  Thankfully I have been hearing about a great option that helps to address my concerns.  ENERGY STAR® dryers use 20% less energy than standard models and ENERGY STAR  washers use 25% less energy and 45% less water!  That could be some potential great savings for us!


Not only do ENERGY STAR washers and dryers offer savings on your energy and water bills, they also are better for the environment.  The average owner will save $490 with an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and could save even more when paired with an ENERGY STAR dryer.  One feature that jumped out to me is that these ENERGY STAR washers do not have a central agitator, that is supposed to help minimize wear and tear on clothing.  And the dryers use a sensor to sense when clothes are dry which also helps reduce wear and tear on your clothing.

ENERGY STAR washers and dryers can be bought from Best Buy. If you are intrigued by this idea, then make sure you watch this video about being a laundry star!

If you are in the market for a new washer, new dryer or possible even both, then visit the Best Buy Blog to learn more!

I would love to hear from you about your best laundry hacks!  What saves you time when you do laundry?  Then go check out ENERGY STAR and let me know if you’d make the switch!
