Choose an ENERGY STAR® qualified washing machine
Natural Resources Canada states that ENERGY STAR® qualified washing machines use 25% less energy and 33% less water on average than conventional machines. Since they spin the clothes faster, the clothes are drier coming out of the machine. That saves energy in your dryer, or time on your clothes rack.
Numerous ENERGY STAR® rated washing machines are available, in various price ranges. As well as ensuring you buy ENERGY STAR®, look at the EnerGuide rating to be sure the washer you buy is the most efficient one that will meet your needs.
