ENERGY STAR® certified dryers use about 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. ENERGY STAR certified heat pump clothes dryers are also now available. These models can save 20 – 60 percent more than conventional clothes dryers.
About 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 more than $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.
