ENERGY STAR® Products at Best Buy
Did you know that ENERGY STAR® certified clothes washers and dryers are 25% and 20% more efficient, respectively, than standard models? So, what does that really mean right? That means you can save $490 over the lifetime of an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and even more with an ENERGY STAR washer/dryer pair! That may not sound like a whole lot over the lifetime of the washer but, I am of the strong opinion that EVERY PENNIE COUNTS!
A new ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer will save you about $45 a year on your utility bills compared to a standard model. Then over the lifetime of the product, an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer saves:
- 1,100 kWh and more than 2.5 million BTUs of natural gas
- 33,000 gallons of water
- $490 over the product’s lifetime
If all clothes washers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, we would save more than $4 billion each year and prevent more than 19 billion pounds of carbon pollution annually. This is equal to the emissions from 1.7 million vehicles. So not only are you saving money you are saving the Earth too!
Clothes dryers that have earned the ENERGY STAR use approximately 20% less energy than standard models. If all clothes dryers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $1.5 billion each year and 22 billion pounds of annual carbon pollution would be prevented. This is equal to the emissions from 2 million vehicles.
So, get on board and help your wallet while you help the Earth!
