Energy Saving Appliances Save Money While Saving the Environment
If you knew that new energy saving appliances could save you several hundred dollars a year, would you consider buying them? Of course you would. If you are looking to replace an aging appliance or starting out in your first home, that kind of saving makes it worth considering spending a little more on your new washer, dryer, dishwasher, stove or refrigerator. Even your air conditioner or dehumidifier can be energy saving appliances. Depending on what it is you purchase, you could save ten to fifty percent in the cost of energy to run those appliances.
In the last twenty years, technology has made major improvements in energy consumption in home appliances. A refrigerator from twenty years ago cost at least one hundred dollars a year to operate. Buy a fridge with a freezer that is at the top instead of the bottom and you are being more energy efficient. These new energy saving appliances cost only twenty five dollars a year to operate. The types of washers that are best to buy are the front loading ones. These not only use less water and electricity they spin better getting more water out of the clothes before they go into the dryers. This means shorter dryer cycles. Both of these appliances are therefore more energy efficient.
Dishwashers are a big energy user. The best kinds of these energy saving appliances are the ones that have a built in heat booster. This device is used to make the hot water that much hotter for a better cleaning. This is useful because it enables your hot water tank to remain at one hundred and twenty degrees Fahrenheit which is a more energy efficient setting yet still supplies your dishwasher with one hundred and forty degree water for a better wash.
Sometimes the way you use your energy saving appliances will also affect the cost of electricity. Preheating even an energy efficient oven for too long is a waste of energy as is using a large oven to cook a small meal. If you want to save costs use a ceramic pan when baking instead of a metal one and you can turn the heat down in your oven and still have your meal cook in the same time. Sometimes your energy saving appliances could use a little help.
