THE HOT AND THE COLD OF WASHING MACHINES

THE HOT AND THE COLD OF WASHING MACHINES

Washing machines are one of those appliances that can use substantial amounts of energy. However, it turns out that most of the energy used is the energy to heat the water from your hot water tank. Instead of using hot water, set warm wash and cold rinse cycles, and save 90 percent over the energy used when the machine is washing in hot water only. Together, all U.S. households could save the energy equivalent of 100,000 barrels of oil everyday by switching from hot/hot to warm/cold cycles. And your clothes will last longer. So start saving today and cool down your wash habits.
