Energy Tips for the Laundry

  1. Only use your washing machine when you have a full load.
  2. Avoid using the dryer. Hang clothes on an outdoor line or on a wire clothes rack under shelter.
  3. Regularly clean the filter of your dryer to keep it running efficiently.
  4. If the sun’s out, get your laundry out. Clothes dryers use a lot of energy, so when you can, use your clothesline.
  5. Wash your clothes in cold water. The cold water cycle will reduce your heating costs and your clothes will stay brighter for longer. Win win!
  6. Choose a washing machine with a good star rating. Front loaders are generally more efficient than top loaders. Make sure you check the star energy ratings before you decide.
