ENERGY STAR® certified clothes washers use about 25% less energy and 45% less water than regular washers.
The average American family washes about 300 loads of laundry each year. ENERGY STAR can help families cut their related energy and water costs.
Better clothes washers could save us more than $4 billion each year.
If every clothes washer purchased in the U.S. was ENERGY STAR certified, we could save more than $4 billion each year and prevent more than 19 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions, equal to the emissions from more than 1.7 million vehicles.
