Low-Energy Laundry Rooms
When you're washing, drying, spinning, and rinsing, follow these easy energy-efficient tips.
Take Clothes for a Spin
Set your washer to a rapid spin cycle. This reduces drying time by wringing excess water from your clothing.
Fast Fact: Washers
Most washing machines expend 90% of their energy on hot-water cycles. Washing clothes in cold water can shave more than $60 per year from your power bill. But use a cold-water detergent if you’re concerned about cleansing effectiveness without hot water.
