If your laundry facilities aren’t equipped with ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers, you are wasting money on water and energy bills—money that could be put to use elsewhere.
Save more than $100 per washer per year, on average. In a 10-washer facility where the water heater and clothes dryers are fueled by natural gas, water and energy savings total $10,327 over 10 years! Savings vary depending on utility rates, fuel choice, and other factors.
