Have you thought about switching to Energy Star, Energy Efficient Appliances? Now is the time. I have posted before about ways to save energy each day around the house. Simply unplugging appliances when not in use and keeping the fridge open for the shortest time possible are easy ways to save on energy costs. But what about when you actually HAVE TO USE your appliances. If you’re like me, you use your washer and dryer a few times a day along with your dishwasher, lights, fans, pool pump, etc. I find myself doing 2-3 loads of laundry per day, everyday and 1 load of dishes too. So, how can we save when we have to use our appliances?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Star appliances can reduce your home appliance energy usage, and costs, by as much as 10 percent to 50 percent! Of course this varies from family to family, but even if you’re on the low end, of saving 10% per month, over a year, that’s a pretty good savings in my book!
Another plus- Energy Star appliances are also more convenient. Purchasing Energy Star washer and dryer means that you can wash more clothes in a single load, and dry them faster. In other words, you’ll do less loads of laundry, and in less time. Another BIG PLUS in my house.
Another bonus: If you purchase an energy-efficient product or renewable energy system for your home, you may be eligible for a federal tax credit- Check out this site for details.
Energy Star appliances aren’t just good for our pocketbooks- but they are good for the environment too! And did you know that Sears has a recycling program?? I didn’t know about it until today. Sears asks customers to take the ENERGY STAR Pledge by visiting SearsBigSwitch.com, where customers can learn more about how they can help.
