Why Energy-Efficient Appliances are Worth the Purchase

Technology offers many benefits, but increases environmental hazards through electricity, green house gases and wastes. If you’re in the market to upgrade appliances, choosing a more efficient option would help the environment and your wallet. Major appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers and washers and dryers consume 13 percent of monthly utility costs. If you own an appliance over 10 years old, the energy usage is doubled.

If you choose to purchase an energy efficient appliance, the energy saving is astounding. New water heaters can save 10-50 percent of energy costs, dishwashers can save 10 gallons of water per cycle and clothes washers use 35 percent less water.
