Best Buy Energy Star Washer and Dryers

There was a time when I bought the cheapest washer and dryer I could get my hands on. I didn’t care what it was like as it worked. Well, after doing that for a few years, and buying many units, I learned my lesson and bought a good set. You might not think of it, but Best Buy is a perfect place to buy an Energy Star washer and dryer.




Ever since Energy Star hit the market it’s been obvious how beneficial it is to own one. The benefits are outstanding and speak for themselves.

Clothes washers that have earned the ENERGY STAR use 25% less energy and approximately 45% less water than standard models.
A new ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer will save you about $45 a year on your utility bills compared to a standard model.
Over the lifetime of the product, an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer saves:
  1,100 kWh and more than 2.5 million BTUs of natural gas,
  33,000 gallons of water,
  $490 over the product’s lifetime.
If all clothes washers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, we would save more than $4 billion each year and prevent more than 19 billion pounds of carbon pollution annually. This is equal to the emissions from 1.7 million vehicles.
ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers incorporate the following advanced features:
  Multiple configurations– ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers are available in either front-load or redesigned top-load configurations which include technology innovations that help save energy and water.
  Sophisticated wash systems– ENERGY STAR certified top-load machines clean your clothing just like standard models without wasting water to fill up the tub. Instead, these machines use sophisticated wash systems to cycle clothes through a mixture of water and detergent, allowing the clothes to be cleaned without using excess water or detergent.
  No central agitator– Front-load machines tumble clothes through a small amount of water instead of rubbing clothes against an agitator, while advanced top-load machines lift and tumble clothes through a reduced stream of water. Both designs dramatically reduce the amount of hot water and energy used in the wash cycle.
  High spin speeds– Efficient motors spin clothes two to three times faster to extract more water. Less moisture in the clothes means less time in the dryer and less energy spent drying clothes.
  Long live your clothes– Front-load and advanced top-load clothes washers’ sophisticated wash systems use a variety of methods to lift and tumble your laundry, lengthening the life of often-washed items. Additionally, because they are so gentle, many models can safely clean silk, wool and other hand-washables.
Clothes dryers that have earned the ENERGY STAR use approximately 20% less energy than standard models.
If all clothes dryers sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $1.5 billion each year and 22 billion pounds of annual carbon pollution would be prevented.  This is equal to the emissions from 2 million vehicles.
ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryers incorporate the following advanced features:
  Low Heat Setting– Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting use less energy. When you purchase an ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryer, look for the cycle that uses the least amount of energy, sometimes known as the “energy-saving” selection.
  Steam Cycles– Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as a steam cycle that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.

After reading all these features and benefits, i’m sure you can agree that Energy Star is the way to go. So head on down to Best Buy and check them out.
