It is hard to believe that it is spring and that Earth Day is just around the corner. This is also the time to start spring cleaning around your home. Did you know that Best Buy has the latest in energy and water efficient appliances from entry-level to premium to help you save time and money?
Why should you use use an ENERGY STAR certified Washer? First, they use less energy. On average, a new ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer uses 280 KWh of electricity and can save you $40 a year on your utility bills compared to a standard model. They also use less water. A full-sized ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer uses 13 gallons of water per load, compared to the 23 gallons used by a standard machine. That’s a savings of more than 3,000 gallons of water, per year! When we changed washers we definitely saw this difference! Lastly, is your washer over 10 years old? Washers built before 2003 are significantly less efficient than newer models. If you have a standard clothes washer that is over 10 years old, it’s costing you, on average $180 a year!
Why should you use an ENERGY STAR certified Dryer? First, they use 20 percent less energy than conventional models without sacrificing features or performance. You are able to use sensor drying (which honestly is one of my favorite features). ENERGY STAR dryer models incorporate advanced moisture sensors to help you reduce your dryer’s energy use. This feature ensures that your dryer will automatically shut off when clothes are dry instead of running constantly with a dry load. They also have a low heat setting. Longer drying cycles on a low heat setting use less energy. When you purchase an ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryer, look in the informational materials shipped with the product for which cycle was tested for certification and how the dryer’s other cycles or settings may use more or less energy. You should also consider gas. Eighty percent of dryers in the US are electric. If you have the option, consider using a gas dryer to save money and reduce your environmental impact!
Now, Best Buy has a great set of ENERGY STAR washers and dryers to pick from. The LG Twin Wash & Sidekick is the perfect choice! Best of all, it lets you do two loads at once, so you have more time to do the things you’d rather be doing in life. It’s LG’s ingenious way of helping today’s consumer divide and conquer their daily workload. The innovative LG TWIN Wash is all about efficiency, helping you get more clothes cleaner in less time. With a combined capacity of up to 6.6 cu. ft., the TWIN Wash boasts an ergonomically elevated and angled door that makes loading and unloading easier. Plus, the LED control panel is located on the door, right at your fingertips. The TurboWash 2.0 feature saves up to 30 minutes on larger loads with outstanding cleaning performance. The TurboSteam technology deeply penetrates fabrics for greater cleaning power. The full-width lid helps prevent spills thanks to an easy-to-fill detergent tray with recessed design. The Sidekick can pair with almost any LG front load unit. You can wash smaller loads without having to waste water by using the main unit. You can add the ingenious LG SideKick pedestal washer to almost any LG front load washer to tackle two loads of laundry — both large and small — at the same time. With the discretely styled with a concealed control panel, the LG SideKick not only functions as a secondary washer, but also raises your front-loading washer to a comfortable height and matches the pedestal beneath your LG dryer.
Best of all, Best Buy offers 18 months major appliance financing or 10% rewards (increased from 5 to10% for April!) and 10% back in grocery purchases! There is also free delivery on purchases $399+!
