Upgrade to an ENERGY STAR® certified clothes dryer.
Electric dryers are more expensive to run than gas ones, but they do reduce carbon.
ENERGY STAR® is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices. Products can earn the ENERGY STAR® label by meeting the energy efficiency requirements set forth in ENERGY STAR® product specifications. ENERGY STAR® qualified products use as much as 50% less energy than standard products.
You can search for ENERGY STAR® products across many major retailers (e.g. Best Buy, Amazon) and find the best deals. You can compare the total cost of owning a product, which includes both the upfront cost as well as the ongoing costs of operating the product (at your utility rate / usage).
If you mark an item on your plan as completed, we will track your estimated energy use and savings over time. We can use this to find additional savings options.
