Let me ask you a question…. How old is your current clothes dryer 10, 15 or 20 years old? I ask, because I had to ask the same question of myself. We’ve had our current clothes dryer for over 15 years. The door stopped closing completely, years ago.My husband in his infinite wisdom, promptly put a piece of tape on the door to ensure it closes while only partially drying our clothes. In addition to the faulty door and partial drying, all of our sweaters and socks always end up with lint balls on them regardless of how many dryer sheets I use. Because of the age of our dryer it is not energy efficient in the least.
If your dryer is as old as mine or if you are experiencing similar issues, it’s time to look into purchasing an ENERGY STAR® certified product. They help to protect the environment by using reduced energy and they save you money on your utility bill. In 2015, Best Buy customers purchased enough ENERGY STAR certified products to collectively save $67,120,515 in annual energy costs.
Best Buy is committed to providing sustainable products. “ENERGY STAR certified dryers use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance. They do this using innovative energy saving technologies, such as moisture sensors that detect when clothes are dry and automatically shut the dryer off. Many ENERGY STAR dryers also include convenient features, such as steam cycles that can help save time on ironing clothes by preventing wrinkles.
Best Buy is committed to positively impacting the environment and our communities. Best Buy provides their customers with a wide assortment of sustainable products. This includes offering a large selection of energy-efficient products, including ENERGY STAR certified consumer electronics and appliances.
The holidays are quickly approaching and everyone enjoys listening to music. Best Buy also offers ENERGY STAR sound bars. Sound bars are portable and can be placed wherever you desire for your optimal listening pleasure. ENERGY STAR certified audio/video equipment, including sound bars is up to 50 percent more efficient than conventional models. Consumers can maximize their energy savings by bundling ENERGY STAR certified televisions and sound bars and other products.
More than 80 percent of American homes have a clothes dryer, so the savings opportunity is huge. If all clothes dryers sold in the US were ENERGY STAR certified, Americans could save $1.5 billion each year in utility costs and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 2 million vehicles. To choose a dryer that saves energy and money while protecting the environment, look for the ENERGY STAR label.
