Energy Star® Appliances
Choosing ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances for your home is a smart decision - they use less energy, save money and help protect the environment.
ENERGY STAR appliances not only use less electricity, they also use much less water. Front loading clothes washers for instance use up to 20 gallons of water LESS than top loading washers per load. All ENERGY STAR qualified appliances have to meet a government standard of efficiency over and above non-qualified products. Look for the ENERGY STAR logo when purchasing your next appliance.
Load the dishwasher properly. Never block the dispenser or spray arms. If blocked, the water and detergent will not circulate and dishes will not wash clean, therefore wasting energy.
