Holiday Gift Guide
From the unintentional splattering of cranberry sauce to gingerbread cookie-baking mishaps, the clothing stains of the holiday season are a special challenge. Now that we seem to be using our appliances more than ever, choosing ENERGY STAR this holiday season can save you money without any sacrifice in performance.
Clothes washers and dryers that have earned the ENERGY STAR deliver superior efficiency and performance by incorporating advanced features. You can save approximately $550 over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and even more with an ENERGY STAR washer/dryer pair.
- Big savings. Clothes dryers that have earned the ENERGY STAR use approximately 20% less energy than standard models.
- Make a difference. If all clothes washers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, we would save more than $3.3 billion each year and prevent more than 19 billion pounds of carbon pollution annually. This is equal to the emissions from 1.8 million vehicles.
- Switch to a heat pump. Using high efficiency compressor technology, heat pump clothes dryers are more efficient than conventional electric dryers. Heat pump dryers that have earned the ENERGY STAR are, on average, 50% more efficient than standard electric dryers, saving more than $500 in electricity costs over the life of the product.
- All-around better. With ENERGY STAR, laundry is just better; better for your clothes, better for you and your family, better for the environment.
