5 Laundry Tips to Save on Energy Costs

Laundry machines use a lot of energy.

To save on power costs, consider the following when doing laundry:

  1. Use cold water to cut a loads energy use by more than half. Cold-water detergents can help ensure clothes get clean.
  2. Your washer will use about the same amount of energy no matter the load size, so fill it up.
  3. Use lower heat settings to save energy, even though the drying cycle is longer.
  4. Clean the lint filter often so the dryer runs more efficiently and safely.
  5. When possible, hang laundry outside or on a drying rack to avoid using the dryer altogether.

Laundry can be a big chore, so let lower energy bills help ease the burden.
