Clothes Washers

ENERY STAR® - Make sure the model is marked with the ENERGY STAR label to ensure it is energy efficient. ENERGY STAR clothes washers use about 25% less energy and 33% less water than regular washers.

Energy Guide label - Typically provides information on how much money you might save or spend over the washer’s lifetime. When purchasing a clothes washer, compare the energy use of similar models to estimate annual operating costs.

Consider Size - The proper size clothes washer is one that fits your usage needs.

Energy-Saving features - Choose clothes washers with energy-saving features such as;

  • Temperature controls allow you to reduce excess energy used to heat water.
  • Water level controls offer more flexibility to control water settings for smaller loads. This reduces energy by offering cycling times specific to the size of the load.
  • Presoaking allows for clothes to soak and get cleaner without the need to run a longer wash cycle.
  • High speed cycles allow for better water removal during the wash cycle. A high-speed cycle removes excess water from your clothes prior to starting the dryer cycle and results in shorter drying time and reduced energy usage.

Energy Guide label - Typically provides information on how much money you might save or spend over the dehumidifier’s lifetime. When purchasing a dehumidifier, compare the energy use of similar models to estimate annual operating costs.

Usage & Features -These factors will help you determine which dehumidifier is right for you.

  • Capacity - A dehumidifier’s capacity is determined by the size of the space and the conditions in the space before dehumidification. Determine the square feet and existing conditions prior to purchasing your unit to ensure you select the correct model for your needs.
  • Placement - Place your dehumidifier away from sources of dust and dirt (which can clog coils and grills) and away from walls or furniture to allow better air circulation, this will help keep your unit running more efficiently.
  • Operating Temperature- If the space being dehumidified has temperatures that fall below 65° F, you’ll need to purchase a unit specified for use at lower temperatures to maintain optimal performance. Certain ENERGY STAR qualified models are available that are rated for use at temperatures as low as 42° F.
  • Built-in Humidistat - This device allows you to set the desired relative humidity (RH) level for the room. Once the room reaches the desired RH level, the dehumidifier will cycle on and off automatically and reduce energy consumption.
