Washing and drying your clothes uses a lot of energy, but with newer washer dryer models it’s possible to keep your costs down and help the environment. So, how do you choose an energy efficient washer dryer?
Washer Dryer Energy Efficiency Explained
Energy Efficiency Ratings
Nearly all household appliances have an energy efficiency rating.
It’s Not Just Energy Efficiency
When you choose a washer dryer, it’s not just energy consumption, but also water consumption you need to consider. Washer dryers use water during drying as well as washing. Water consumption is listed on the energy label, along with washing performance (from A to G), spin speed, drum capacity – which will be different for washing and drying - and the noise level.
Tips For Efficient Laundry
Investing in the most efficient washer dryer is a good start, but there are more things you can do to make laundry more efficient.
Washing clothes using cooler water is the best way to reduce energy consumption. Most washer dryers allow you to alter the temperature of their wash programmes, so try turning it down a notch or two. Usually, higher temperatures are only needed for the most stubborn stains or hygienically cleaning bedding, towels or baby clothes.
On warmer days you could air dry your clothes, rather than using the washer dryer. The drying cycles consume the most energy so cutting these out makes a difference.
